Dr. Noel Ramirez

(DBH, MSW, MPH)

About Me

I am a Philly based licensed clinical social worker and public health professional. Informed by Immigrant-Filipino parents who love through a sense of home, a chosen Queer family who resist subjugation and a public health community that seeks to honor social, and environmental context, my approach is relational, inter-subjective and grounded in love, honor, and respect.

I received my graduate training in social work from the University of Pennsylvania and my graduate public health training from Drexel University. I recently completed my Doctorate in Behavioral Health from Arizona State University and focused my academic work in developing programing in patient-centered medical homes, integrated-health, recovery-oriented primary care, and body-positive behavioral interventions. I am a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional and have training in clinical supervision for behavioral health professionals

Currently, I teach a wide range of graduate courses that invite an intersectional approach to social work practice at Columbia University and West Chester University. I have a private practice in the Philadelphia area and also provide behavioral health consultation for a community health clinic in Philadelphia. I am deeply honored to be doing this work.

Written by A.L. on Jul 22, 2020 after counseling with Noel for 9 months on issues concerning lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

Dr. Ramirez truly listens and meets me where I am. They have helped me not only identify what I feel but dig deeper and understand the impact current or past beliefs have on how I interact with the world. Dr. Ramirez doesn’t push a narrative but encourages me to determine how my narrative was built/created. I highly recommend Dr. Ramirez.

Dr. Ramirez is very good at helping me identify and verbalize my feelings and emotions. Dr. Ramirez's approach and outlooks are different than therapists I've met with in the past, which I find useful. It gives me a different perspective of my feelings and emotions, which I believe will help me better understand my emotions and teach me different methods of self-development.

Dr. Ramirez has really helped me to overcome some of the residual effects of my childhood trauma and helped me find positive tools and strategies for dealing with my anxiety and depression. He is also personable and friendly and easy to talk to! My experience with him has been nothing but great so far.

Dr. Ramirez is an amazing counselor. I’m so grateful to have some one that listens to me and supports me and digs deeper into who I am and helps me work on myself to become the best me.

I really appreciate Dr Ramirez’s patient approach to therapy. He is very attentive and focused, knowing what questions to ask, and empathises with your situation. I’ve never had a therapist who knew me without seeing me or anything. He’s very respectful of my preference to not be seen. I’m very grateful.

A wonderful counsellor. Incredibly helpful at dealing with a variety of issues I have been dealing with and always very proactive with how I can approach various issues. Would 100% recommend to anyone!

Noel and myself have been speaking for a short time. This is my first experience at counselling and i already feel comfortable in sharing things that I wouldn't usually. Noel says just enough to get me thinking and analysing what i already know. Just helps to have someone to help lay it all out

Written by C.A. on Oct 30, 2019 after counseling with Noel for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

Noel and I have only been talking for a couple of weeks. He has been very supportive and has let me rant and complain about everything that is going on in my life. He has offered me a kind ear and advice back. It has helped me already just knowing I have someone to listen.
