About Me

I provide psychotherapy for individuals (children, adolescents, and adults.), working from a client-centered perspective that is integrative, collaborative, and recovery-based (i.e., incorporates client's strengths as opposed to solely focusing on negatives or pathology). This provides a safe space for clients to feel heard, understood, and respected. I am also an expert in working with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and same sex attracted clients, and the unique psychological issues present in the community.
I have been in practice since 2008 and I have worked with individuals in ages ranging from 5 to 85 years old. I have a credential in School Counseling K-12 and have worked in schools and non-profit agencies. I support clients in building positive communication, fostering meaningful relationships, practicing appropriate social skills, utilizing healthy coping strategies, and to establish and maintain healthy boundaries within a culturally sensitive approach in order to generate lasting interpersonal change.
I treat everyone with respect and warmth. I work to ensure that our sessions will be tailored to your needs and goals. I’m available for online therapy sessions with individuals anywhere in the state of California. I graduated from Saint Mary's College of California. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, #8570 in the State of California.

Written by J.U. on Oct 22, 2021 after therapy with Jean-Pierre for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

JP has listened to me and encouraged me. Being able to speak French with him was a big help. And his French is really good. With is humour, he created a relaxed atmosphere during our session. It was really nice to work with him.

Written by A.N. on Oct 19, 2021 after therapy with Jean-Pierre for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, and self esteem

I have worked with JP for 10 months now and have benefited tremendously from our sessions together. JP is straightforward and unafraid to tell me what he thinks I need to hear, but it is clear he is very caring and committed to his patients. I can not recommend him enough. I actually just referred a friend to Betterhelp because of how helpful it has been to me.

Jean De Oliveira is both attentive and knowledgeable. I am encouraged by our time together and feel like the work we are doing is collaborative and geared towards building stronger behaviors and managing past traumas. Thank you JP.

He’s absolutely fantastic, when he can keep my girls straight. But that’s mostly my fault. ;)

He made me feel comfortable right away. He made me feel understood and I feel confident that our sessions will help me on my self care and self growth journey

I don't know where I would be without JP. He's enabled me to completely change the direction of my life. I'm happier, more confident, and more content than I've ever been due to the work he's done with me.

JP is an incredible listener. Our sessions create a safe space for me to express myself and talk out some of my thought processes. JP is a kind and gentle person that helps you feel comfortable from the first session. He also tailors sessions to you and is completely open to discussing anything.

JP De Oliveira (LPCC) is a compassionate, intellectual, expert that has definitely assisted me on my journey from Deep depression to a place of appreciation for the richness offered by the many dimensions of the human life experience. He was able to assist me in supporting my well-being by communicating with Human Resources as well as my PCP (primary care physician) in order for my application for FMLA to be completed and approved. Self-empowering sessions, and opening the platform for any topic I chose to discuss, make meeting with him a great pleasure. The best coaches assist others in by guiding others to become their personal best, and JP does just that. I would recommend him 10 out of 10 times.

JP is a wonderful therapist. In the short time I've been speaking to him he's given me a lot to think about and some great perspective on some things that have been bothering me. I find him supportive in a non condescending way and I feel respected and heard by him. I look forward to continuing our journey together

I started working with Jean a few months ago. I was experiencing a high level of anxiety and felt stuck in my professional life. Through different discussions with Jean, I realized that my ADHD was causing a lot of the issues I experienced in my daily life. The countless projects initiated but never completed, the relationships issues, the difficulties to unwind... all of these were ADHD related. Thanks to his expertise with ADHD, Jean spotted it very quickly and offered support to help manage the symptoms. He was accommodating, available and provided me with insightful advice. I definitely recommend Jean as a therapist, especially for people who face ADHD related issues.

JP was helpful in helping me navigate my primary care doctor and Kaiser system and it also was nice to speak with a therapist who is from Europe and could understand the European perspective like me both culturally and in terms of differences in the health care system and values!

Jeans advice has helped me get a positive outcome when dealing with a salary review at work and helped me to find a good approach at putting a good case forward to my boss. As well as helping me being able to see myself for my worth in the work that I do.

When I initially came to JP, I was in a very dark place emotionally. Had a lot going on in both my family and relationships that left me feeling very empty. JP’s advice and methodology towards therapy helped me discover a lot of things about myself, and I have grown in ways I never thought possible. If you were to compare myself when I first started treatment vs. how I am now, it is like night and day. I owe JP a lot for where I am in my life right now, and he is the first therapist I was able to open up to like this. He understands the dynamic of a minority (especially Muslim) family in ways many people can’t, and I highly recommend him as a therapist.

Jean speaks French and understand the culture. He is patient and easy going. I feel safe and confident talking to him.

JP is unlike any other therapist I’ve worked with - he’s straight to the point and doesn’t sugar coat. He provides the perspective you need but are afraid of taping into because of the expectation society puts on you.

I have throughly enjoyed seeing him every week and the continuous support he provides in between video sessions are incredibly insightful and useful. JP wants me to win, to achieve my goals and live my best life.

I’m on my way to doing just that, thanks to JP!

Jean has been a pleasure to work with and has been the best therapist that I have worked with. He keeps it real and approaches things in a very logical manner. He is insightful, informed, and helpful in varied aspects. He also provides some pretty great resources. Admittedly, his style may not work for everyone (keeping it real/honest) but if it works for you, you will see progress in ways that you might not have thought possible.

I met JP when in a real crisis, the worst of my life. His kind, caring support and advice has been phenomenal. I've got a healing marriage, good connection with friends, taking care of myself and recovered from losing a job. Thanks JP for your support. I highly recommend JP

I thoroughly enjoy everything about JP’s methods. What sticks out for me is his incredibly honest demeanor and his accuracy. He reads the room in a way that no one I know does and will find a solution for everything, always. My quality of life has significantly increased since the beginning of my sessions with him and I plan on sticking around just to see how good it can get.

Jean De Oliveira is kind and makes talking to him easy! If you're nervous about opening up, he will definitely make it easy for you to talk.

Written by A.N. on Apr 13, 2021 after therapy with Jean-Pierre for 3 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, and coping with life changes

I will be forever grateful that I picked JP as my counselor. I have been so fortunate to have him by my side as I work through the most difficult time in my life. He is insightful, has an encyclopedic knowledge of his field, shows a genuine interest in me and my well being, makes himself available whenever I need him and has even managed to make me laugh when I least feel like doing so. He has made me feel so well supported and has given such good advice that I know I will not only get through this terrible time in my life healthy but I will come out the other side stronger. I cannot recommend him enough.

Written by A.N. on Apr 05, 2021 after therapy with Jean-Pierre for 3 months on issues concerning lgbt, intimacy-related issues, and adhd

Jean is an amazing counselor who has really turned me around on my views on therapy. He has taken the time to listen to my issues and has helped me see my way through some issues that I have and gives a good solid perspective that encourages growth rather than expecting or demanding growth. His kindness, generosity, patience, and drive to understand the core of what is going on has been life changing for me. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone looking for an experienced counselor in LGTQ+ issues and he has gone above and beyond in helping me during my transition.

Written by K.Y. on Apr 02, 2021 after therapy with Jean-Pierre for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and grief

Jean has been incredible to work! Working with Jean has helped me in very large ways. While working with him the awful things that happen in this world don’t physically cripple me. They still hurt and I still feel them, but I’m able to be angry and sad about them but continue in my everyday life. He is wonderful and whomever gets the pleasure of working with him is very fortunate.

Jean is a great therapist. I previously had a few therapists on BetterHelp that weren’t good and didn’t seem to fit in as mental health professionals, but Jean is great. He’s present at every session, very supportive, 10/10 much better experience than I had with others. Would definitely highly recommend to anyone.

Jean De Oliveira is truly a comfort and such a beacon understanding. He listens well and truly remembers the things you speak about and is very good at kindly keeping you accountable. He is always prompt with responding to messages and nothing is ever "too much". He has so many different kinds of tools to help his patients, from books, movies, articles, interactive websites. He is truly the real deal and is trustworthy and creates space for you to speak, with no judgement. I would recommend him x100.

Jean-Pierre helped me understand myself better after just a couple of weeks of therapy with him. He is a good listener and gave me many resources and suggestions to help me. The conversation feels warmer and more human with him, even though it's an online therapy.

JP is also one of the few therapists on this app who speaks French, merci :)

Jean De Oliveira is very kind, warm natured, astute, has excellent insight which had proven to be incredibly beneficial for me with help with processing trauma. He offers practical advice, has sent me links to books, websites, even things on YouTube that he felt would be a help to me. I've learnt things about myself that I didn't know from Jean. It has been an interesting journey that he is helping me navigate. He has a lovely makeup. Very kind and empathetic; a sense of humour which helps lighten moments in a session. He did research about a certain topic I had been speaking about which surprised me that he would take the time and trouble and the initiative. He is very accommodating with session times. He is genuine and truly cares about his clients. He is an absolute blessing, non judgmental. I'm very thankful to Jean and highly recommend him.

JP has been a huge force in helping me understand myself and my issues better. I started therapy a half a year ago and ever since I swapped therapist to JP I feel like I have been making progress.
Not only does he understand me but he also puts everything in a way that I can understand myself. Overall he is also a really funny and empathetic guy where it's very easy to just share all your thoughts and feelings.
I can recommend JP if you are looking for someone who will actually care about making your life a better place.

Jean has been very helpful. Great listener and very willing to help me decide if I'd be a good betterhelp counselor. I have my LPCC like Jean and he was able to share his own experience working as an online therapist both for BetterHelp and other organizations. I'd highly recommend him to others and would certainly consider reaching out to him again if I had another need for my own personal counseling.
