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.

I came to Jorge with a suitcase full of issues I wasn't really ready to handle. He gave me space to talk when I wanted to talk and share what I wanted to share.

I believe my counselor is experienced and knowledgeable.
Therapy is a journey. We guard secrets in boxes deep within our minds. Jorge seems to be intuitive and when trying to paints the whole picture can tell if you are withholding information. He definitely listens and shines perspective different than what you originally imagined. It's also like talking to someone with very sage advice.
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.

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

Jorge is one of the most experienced counselors around and you’d be lucky to have him. Consider yourself as having hit the BetterHelp therapy lottery and count your blessings to have such a kind, peaceful, and intelligent man as part of your support circle.
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.
I've been working with Jorge for about a month now and look forward to our sessions, and always feel great after them. He is a great active listener and provides amazing advice without being pushy or judgmental.
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.
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.
I love working with Jorge. He listens to my issues but consistently pushes me to solutions outside my comfort zone forcing me to address my problems rather than hide behind procrastination and lethargy. I would highly recommend him.
When I speak with Jorge, I have the confidence that I am receiving honest counseling on the issues I am facing, and the sentiments I am expressing.
Jorge was extremely helpful during a very difficult time in my life, and helped me transform into a better version of myself. His calm expertise and experience was invaluable.

Thank you Jorge for helping me understand my feelings of sadness, anger and loss. I am so much better off after these weeks talking to you. I am now prepared to take a new path in my life.
Jorge has so far been able to listen to me without any judgement and that is what is important to me when seeking counseling.
I have been through a lot of traumatic experiences. I saw a counselor four years ago and I thought that person just made things worse and never tried to get help again. Jorge Abreu has restored my faith in counselors and really has made a difference. So I would like to say thank you to Jorge for the possibility of a future that is not my past! :)
