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 wonderful, full stop. His counseling helped me navigate a very difficult time in my life and his wisdom and perspective has helped re-shape the way I view the world. I constantly tell my friends about how I wish every therapist was as wonderful as Jorge because he is a treasure.

Written on Jul 11, 2022 after therapy with Jorge for 3 years and 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

A few years ago, I was simply existing, going through the motions of life, waiting to die. Took a chance on Jorge. Today I am more balanced than I have ever been, thanks to his patience, insight and support. I don’t know where I would be otherwise. Because of him, I can truly help myself. Thank you, Jorge.

Jorge is the best therapist I have ever had. He is kind, understanding, and insightful. He is also honest and calls me on my b.s. He got me through a really hard time in my life and I am forever grateful for his guidance. Jorge is an exceptional therapist and I am very sad to see him go.
