Jesus Valiente, LPC
I am bilingual, multi-culturally competent, trauma-informed, and my experience is diverse. My greatest clinical strength is customization – I provide each client with an individualized therapeutic package, centered around your specific needs.
My theoretical orientation is based in Positive Psychology using a strengths-based, person-centered approach with a focus on achieving resilience. I believe passionately in the power of the individual to change. My background includes private practice, inpatient and outpatient hospitalizations, residential treatment centers, and community-based counseling.
Real change happens when behaviors change. You and I will know you are making progress as you begin to feel better and make meaningful behavioral adjustments. As a cognitive-behavioral therapist, I teach clients about the link between thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Using this link, I will then teach you how to “hack” the system in reverse – that is; changes in behavior lead to changes in emotions and thoughts. Therapy is a process rather than a destination. So, the duration of time in therapy varies by individual, as do the results. Telehealth offers client's convenience, eliminates travel time, and increases access to therapy.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Anger management, Bipolar disorder, Co-morbidity, Domestic Violence, HIV / AIDS, Men's Issues, Mood Disorders, Personality Disorders, Post-traumatic Stress, Sexual Assault and Abuse, Sexuality
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

He really took the time to listen to me and give me the best advice / techniques for me to get a handle on my anxiety. Never have I felt this strong mentally and I can’t thank him enough. Highly recommend.

Unfortunately it was difficult trying to connect with Jesus. No matter how I answered his questions, I was always giving the wrong information.
