Hello! I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in San Jose California with a broad range of experience in community mental health and private practice settings. I supervise a team of therapists and case managers for a Criminal Justice program in my community mental health setting. In my private work, I have experience working with adults, couples, families, and foster youth. The two forms of therapy I am most trained in are Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). As a Dialectical Behavior Therapist, my approach is simple; support the client with unconditional positive regard (Acceptance) while encouraging growth (Change). Regarding EMDR, I recently completed my comprehensive EMDR training through an EMDRIA approved organization, and I'm working towards certification. Individuals who would benefit most from my style of therapy are those who have become tired of simply talking about their problems, and who are ready to take concrete steps towards creating meaningful change in their lives. DBT and EMDR therapy is not the type of therapy for individuals who only need talk therapy. Thank you for taking the time to read about me, and I look forward to working with you.

Juan Carlos has been an outstanding therapist! He is responsive, empathetic, and incredibly helpful. He listens carefully and provides a safe, reassuring, and non-judgmental environment. His approach is structured and tailored to your specific needs. He is also always learning, getting advanced training, and reading the latest literature to stay up-to-date.
I feel empowered and rejuvenated after our sessions; I have been able to take away pragmatic action items and also think through complex problems with him. I also value the serenity he brings to each encounter. Overall, I am extremely satisfied and grateful I found him on Betterhelp!
Carlos is absolutely amazing and so so helpful. He has become a safe space for me and I am so lucky to have been paired with him
In the short months that I have worked with Carlos I have been able to look at my trauma in a new light. I am very grateful for all of our sessions, Carlos was one of the first therapists I ever had who I felt immediately understood by and as if his advice truly connected with me. I absolutely recommend him as a therapist, he is one of the best I've had the chance to work with.
Carlos is amazing!
Juan is amazing! Does a fantastic job! I've gotten more help in my time working with him than any other place.
Carlos is wonderful! He has helped me through my anxiety several times and continues to be supportive whenever it crops up by arming me with information, advice, and exercises that I can use regularly to help and better myself and make it so that whenever it does come about it goes away almost as fast. He is a fantastic listener, very knowledgeable and approachable, and enjoys doing everything that he can to help, and is very well armed to do just that. I highly recommend him!
Carlos is incredibly beneficial in helping me create a better mental space for myself. So kind, so helpful, listens to all my ramblings and helps identify where to make the adjustments in thinking in order to better my mentalities. I would 100% recommend Carlos to anybody looking for a great therapist.
My counselor is so helpful and a great listener!
I've tried therapy with two other therapist in the past but they weren't as great at Carlos! Carlos is very attentive, genuinely cares about you becoming the best version of yourself and assigns great exercises that really help you be more mindful and motivated. Taking a short break but when I come back I would like to keep having sessions with Carlos. I have him to thank for my immense progress.
Great listener. Always supportive and holds me accountable to my goals.
Juan Carlos is very helpful and understanding.
Carlos was a blessing during the several months of therapy. I am beyond grateful that he was kind and understanding. We followed a structured plan to help me cope with my complex PTSD and anxiety. I now have new strategies that I can use everyday. I would highly recommend Carlos to any person who wants a reliable and kind therapist.
He's amazing, empathetic and kind, really pays attention and listens.
Meeting with Carlos each week was hugely supportive during a stressful and precarious time in my life. He is kind, dedicated, and receptive. From my heart, thank you Carlos!!
So far, I'm really glad that I signed up for this website. My counselor is professional, helpful, and kind, and having the opportunity to share my thoughts at any time in journal form has been very helpful. He's shared exercises that are really useful for me. I would recommend my counselor, and this website, to anyone.
Friendly and understanding
