BROOKLYN — Ciro Ortiz is perhaps the most unconventional therapist his “clients” have ever turned to.
One couple in a session with Ciro sought advice on how to handle the wife’s conversion to being a vegan. The husband was unhappy with her choice.
“I told him that she didn’t get mad at him for eating meat,” Ciro told The Post. “She likes to eat what she wants, and he likes to eat whatever he wants, so they’re just going to have to deal with it.”
Though Ciro loves comic books and playing “Minecraft,” his parents said that he has not done a lot of shopping for himself with his earnings, which average about $50 per afternoon. Instead, he spends it on classmates.
“He buys food or snacks at school for kids who can’t afford them,” Ortiz said.
Ciro said that the most prevalent problem he’s helped people with is change. A lot of his clients have trouble accepting it.
“We have to accept [change],” he told The Post. “It’s going to happen. It’s always going to happen. Life is always changing.”
