Paul Hassell LMSW

Paul Hassell Therapist

“As someone who had to educate their therapists about what it was like to be young, gay, and living with HIV/AIDS, I understand the importance of finding a provider who can truly understand and empathize with your experiences. My passion lies in helping clients manage addiction, HIV diagnosis, chronic illness, and healthy sexuality.

Substance is an all-too-familiar element in my life, leading me to seek treatment in 2010. Through hard work and determination, I was able to replace addiction with recovery and began my college career in 2012. I am proud to say that I received my Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin in 2020, something I never could have accomplished while living in addiction.

When I’m not working with clients, I enjoy spending quality time with my family, going on day trips, and exploring museums.  I’m also passionate about traveling, with New Mexico being a life-long favorite destination.  As someone who values personal growth and emotional wellness, I’m always searching for new ways to work through my emotions and achieve inner peace.

I bring a lifetime of experiences and a desire for change into my work. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can feel heard and understood. I firmly believe that change is inevitable and I choose to participate in the process. My goal is to empower others in their own process and help them achieve their goal.”
