(M.S.W., L.C.S.W.)

About Me

The decision to start the journey of introspection, self-evaluation and enhanced life is a serious and all-encompassing. The details of this journey are both rich in quality and complex in their uniqueness. However, harvesting the fruits of this labor is the sweetest recompense! The journey begins with an attempt, and a wish to connect to another. I can be that connection, and it remains my honor to partake in such journey!
I am dedicated to helping YOU achieve a meaningful and impactful therapeutic transformation, to reach and realize inherent potential and highest goals.
technically, my approach is humanistic-based, with behavioral cognitive and insight-oriented interventions. My assessments and evaluations, are comprehensive bio-psychosocial-spiritual, in nature. My goal is to establish a connection, whereby both the client and I will partner, addressing those aspects of life which present formidable obstacles, and/or repress growth. I do this through interventions that respect the client, and help empower the use of lessons learned to overcome symptoms; sabotaged relationships; difficulties at home/work/with significant others, while modifying target behaviors and thoughts.

Jorge is very knowledgeable about a variety of topics. He makes me very comfortable. I feel confident sharing EVERYTHING with him. He expresses his Joy when I've had a breakthrough. He gives me advice and is patient with me when I have a set back. So far, Jorge is everything I've ever wanted in a counselor.

Written by D.A. on Sep 02, 2018 after counseling with Jorge for 2 weeks on issues concerning family, and eating

I have met by phone twice and have had multiple text messages with Jorge. He has been very supportive and an active listener. He has suggested tools I can use to support my goals and objectives.

It’s still early in the coaching but so far the tools have been effective and resulted in a favorable outcome in conversation with my partner.

With appreciation and gratitude.
