Brief Bio:

Hi! I am Jonathan (He/Him/El). I am a husband, father, and therapist who specializes in supporting people navigating various life challenges including life transitions, parenting, spousal challenges, fatherhood, sexuality, intimacy, and challenging toxic masculinity.

I believe that a safe space is a brave space. I do my best in crafting safety, which allows for self-exploration and healing at your pace.

Please know that you do not need to be going through a life challenge or be in distress to talk to a therapist. Therapy is a valuable form of self-care and I can aid in strengthening your self-care goals.

I utilize an integrated and holistic approach to psychotherapy. I borrow from various modalities (Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral, Developmental, Liberation, Somatic, and Mindfulness-Based) and work through a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive lens. I am trained in EMDR and have experience working with a range of populations including college students, persons living with HIV, and people in recovery from substance use disorders.

I am a native of Lima, Peru, and fluent in English/Spanish. As a man of color, I can certainly speak to (and attest to) the various intersections we find ourselves in as well as the challenges of navigating life within these intersections.

If you are ready to embark on a journey of self-exploration, healing, and well-being, feel free to reach out for a consultation.

Espanol:

¡Hola y bienvenidos! Mi nombre es Jonathan (Pronombre, El). Soy esposo, padre de familia, y terapeuta. Me concentro en apoyar a personas que atraviesan diversos desafíos de la vida, incluyendo transiciones, crianza de los hijos, desafíos conyugales, paternidad, sexualidad, intimidad relacional y el desafío a la masculinidad tóxica.

Creo que un espacio seguro es un espacio valiente. Hago todo lo posible para crear un ambiente seguro, lo que permite la autoexploración y la curación a su ritmo.

Tenga en cuenta que no es necesario estar pasando por momentos dificiles o estar angustiado para hablar con un terapeuta. La terapia es una forma valiosa de cuidado personal y puedo ayudar a fortalecer sus objetivos de cuidado personal (Self-Care).

Utilizo un enfoque integrado y holístico de la psicoterapia. Tomo prestadas varias modalidades (psicodinámica, conductual cognitiva, desarrollo, liberación, somática y basada en la atención plena- Mindfulness). Trabajo a través de un lente cultural-sensible e informado por el trauma. También estoy entrenado en Terapia EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing).

Naci en Lima, Perú, y hablo inglés/español con fluidez. Como persona de color, ciertamente puedo hablar (y atestiguar) las diversas intersecciones en las que nos encontramos, y tambien como navegamos esos desafíos.

Si está listo para embarcarse en un viaje de autoexploración, sanación, y bienestar, póngase en contacto para una consulta.
