About Me

My educational background has prepared me for the role of therapist. My relevant qualifications include a Master's in Social Work, a Bachelor's in Psychology, and a Minor in Sociology. In addition, I have practiced in a professional manner with non-English speaking families/individuals. I was born in Mexico, but have lived in the United States virtually all my life. I have lived both in urban, and rural areas which gives me a perspective of the issues commonly associated with both.
I have worked in a verity of setting from elementary school students to an HIV clinic. During my profession I have conducted psycho-social assessments, reassessment, groups, and individual therapy. I have done some crisis work in my past as well. I feel comfortable working with a wide range of people, and a verity of problems. I have a particular good grasp on working with trauma, anxiety, depression, existentialism, or issues related to adjustment.

he has been very helpful in the last few weeks giving me an opportunity to explore some issues in a judgment free place. I am looking forward to getting to a better place in my life with his help

Written by A.R. on Aug 11, 2020 after counseling with Jose for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Most caring and thoughtful therapist I’ve had. Really is willing to do what is best for you and tell you what you truly need to hear. If you are willing to put in the work and open up you will give him everything he needs to help you. I can’t think of anyone I’ve had to work with that’s been more thoughtful, balanced, and capable.

I've only had one session with Mr. Montoya but so far I'm impressed with him. He's very good at listening but also very good at prodding you to get you to think and bring out things that you did not even consider. I look forward to having more sessions with him and continuing my journey of self improvement.
