(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.

Written by H.A. on Nov 22, 2019 after counseling with Jorge for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

Jorge is wonderful and incredibly sincere. I was going through a really rough time. He was so patient and helpful. Communicating with him brought me relief and comfort. Thank you, Jorge.

Written by D.A. on Nov 09, 2019 after counseling with Jorge for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts, and eating disorders

I have now been working with Jorge for over a year. Over that time many of life experiences have occurred. Just prior to my engaging Jorge, the death of one of my parents, death of my brother, then during the year relationship challenges with siblings, business successes and business failures, relationship successes and moving towards divorce, my mother living with dementia at times with me and at times in assisted living.

Throughout all of these life experiences, Jorge has been a constant source of support. He is a supportive and insightful coach and challenging when appropriate. He has helped me make decisions with clarity and confidence.

It’s been a very challenging year and Jorge has been a constant, consistent, listening and supportive advocate. He is an intellectual, he is smart and experienced.

I highly recommend Jorge!

I've written as much before, but Jorge is a skilled counselor with a very human and relatable approach.

Jorge offers a sense of clarity in every message he sends. He talks about resources and tangible means of addressing my struggles. His availability is also more than generous. Though most importantly, he makes me feel heard and understood.

Written by J.O. on Jul 17, 2019 after counseling with Jorge for 1 month on issues concerning depression, addictions, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

Written by Z.O. on Jul 05, 2019 after counseling with Jorge for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and coaching

Jorge is truly amazing. His insights from prior experiences and his ability to get you to think about a situation in a slightly new light really dive to the heart of the matter and what you are feeling. I am from a culture where therapy is frowned upon and dismissed as not needed. I have completely changed my idea of therapy thanks to Jorge.

Written by M.A. on May 25, 2019 after counseling with Jorge for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Mr. Abreu has helped me immensely. I have learned many techniques on how to better cope and process hostile environments and people. His techniques have helped and continue to help me with my anxiety and depression. To be honest I can be quite hard headed and hot headed and Mr. Abreu creates a safe space that also does not cater to my sometimes bs. He’s firm, but kind and caring and creates an atmosphere where I have to look deeply within myself. Inevitably that inward looking (while sometimes painful) is what is helping me to grow and heal my traumas. Also he introduced me to a new form of meditation that has helped me more than I can convey through written word on here. I highly recommend Mr. Abreu. His years of practice and diverse experience continue to help me solidify who I’ve always been meant to be.

Written by J.U. on Apr 03, 2019 after counseling with Jorge for 1 year and 3 months
