Dr. Joseph Prewitt-Diaz

About me

Pastoral Counselor with more than 30 years of experience. I have worked with survivors of disasters or crises, people who have experienced a humanitarian crisis, or who are survivors of migration-related trauma. I have also worked with disaster workers experiencing compassion fatigue and/or veterans experiencing adjustment issues. I consider it important to walk with people who seek accompaniment and a compassionate ear after a traumatic experience, as well as those people who because of their age feel overwhelmed and without desire to move forward, as well as those who have suffered loss and hope.

Consejera Pastoral con más de 30 años de experiencia. He trabajado con sobrevivientes de desastres o crisis, personas que han experimentado una crisis humanitaria o que son sobrevivientes de traumas relacionados con la migración. También he trabajado con trabajadores de desastres que experimentan fatiga por compasión y / o veteranos que experimentan problemas de adaptación. Considero importante caminar con personas que buscan acompañamiento y un oído compasivo después de una experiencia traumática, así como con aquellas personas que por su edad se sienten abrumadas y sin ganas de seguir adelante, así como con aquellas que han sufrido pérdida y esperanza.

He doesn’t act like a pretentious person, he is as real and honest with me as possible. 10/10 guy. Highly recommend

Written on Oct 16, 2022 after therapy with Joseph for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Patient, practical, and experienced listener that’ll work with you to understand your current situation, and form a gentle, practical solution that’ll help heal you.

Written on Sep 22, 2022 after therapy with Joseph for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

He great at understanding the underlying cause of my problems. We share some similarities but also some differences that's been leading to some great insight. I'm bad at fully conveying how I feel or what I'm thinking unless it on paper, so we haven't gotten to some of the traumatic things that I want to discuss or some of the more personal things I want to touch on, but he understands that the root of my problems stems from my current financial situation that's preventing me from enjoying or appreciating life, which is why - atleast I hope - our sessions have been focused on that problem. I hope that, as time goes on and things get better, we can touch on other problems. I appreciate his guidance and help.

Dr. Prewitt-Diaz has provided exactly the mix of faith suported and general counseling that I needed for my grief. He is a pastor, but only after his role as a counselor.

Written on Aug 11, 2022 after therapy with Joseph for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and self esteem

Joe is the definition of an attentive therapist. He listens before asking the questions allowing you to lay your issues on the table with no judgement. Moreover, his wise ability to tie events back to my childhood not only had me thinking, but gave me the revelations to advance my future. I couldn’t have imagined more of an understanding therapist.

Written on Aug 09, 2022 after therapy with Joseph for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Highly recommend Joe.
1. Great listener - takes the time to really listen to your story and provides amazing feedback with a clear guideline of what you should do
2. Very wise - you can tell he has a long list of experiences under his belt. Everything he says is filled with wisdom and spirituality
3. Encouraging - in times of crisis, he provides warmth to the soul and helps you tap back into reality when you're not in sober-mind.

10/10 recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz.

In the time I had with Dr. Diaz, he has truly made me feel seen. I was in such a bad place I thought I could never recover from but Dr. Diaz made me see that with some faith, time, and effort I could truly turn my life around. He takes the time to get to know you, and understand why you're having such a difficult time while being very patient. He truly cares about seeing you succeed in life and has helped me immensely. I also think it's very special that he is a bilingual (Spanish/English) therapist and I would recommend him to ANYONE looking to seek therapy on Beterhelp!

Dr. Prewitt-Diaz (Joe),
Although we had a short time together, his words, encouragement, advice, understanding and style will be with me forever.

I really enjoyed my therapy session with Dr. Prewitt-Diaz

Written on Mar 17, 2022 after therapy with Joseph for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Dr.Diaz is an amazing therapist. I have been going to therapy for almost two years now and most other therapist I have had in the past would just ask questions and listen with no clear direction where the session is going. Dr Diaz on the other hand, has a clear approach, he took the time to learn about my needs and what I am hoping to achieve from my therapy and it just took off. He is an amazing and compassionate listener. He also gives great actionable advice/tools to use on a daily basis. I will continue using the tools I learned in therapy with him even after I stop. He truly elevated my spirits and gave me hope in my next season of life.

Dr. Diaz is good listener and has a variety of skills and techniques to offer to help with coping depression and anxiety. He also helped me set up goals that were important and that we would re-visit in the next session. I highly recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz

Dr. Prewitt-Diaz proved to be extremely helpful immediately upon beginning my sessions with him. I felt like he understood my needs and focus very quickly, and has been great at managing our time together to make sure I get the most out of it.

He has encouraged me greatly, and helps me to see the value in myself—an area that I have struggled with. He also recognizes that I have goals and is consistent in considering these goals and helping me move towards them each week.

I would recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz to anyone that is seeking personal growth in these difficult times. Life is hard and can be overwhelming for each of us—no matter how different our experiences may be. I would encourage anyone to take action in seeking help, regardless of where they’re at in their life’s journey. There is always room to grow, and it’s never too late to master one’s circumstances through mindfulness and self-care.
