With empathy and openness, I help clients live in more authentic ways. I focus on a client's internal motivations for change in order to address what may NOT be working well for them, or to strengthen and maintain what may be working well enough. Clients who work with me in couple's/family counseling, experience me as affirming, fair, balanced, reflective and interactive as needed. I am here to help clients identify and reclaim their core values and find healthy ways to live out those values, in order to enhance client health, wellness and success.

Our practice is here to help you overcome challenges and get back to living life. Counseling is offered in-office or online (teletherapy). I understand that the thought of finding a counselor you trust & feel comfortable with is difficult – yet – so is the alternative. Will you join us in helping you achieve your goals?
Juan offers counseling online and at the Greensboro location. Online counseling is no different from face-to-face counseling, sessions are completed using video while you are in the comfort of your own home.

Human problems and suffering reside with every society and have proved to be ageless. In accepting the reality of the pain and suffering one needs commitment to explore the gamut of human experiences and emerge ready to carry on with some healing and hope for tomorrow. With EMDR therapy the primary goal is to leave you with the emotions, understanding, and perspectives that will lead to healthy and useful behaviors and interactions.
I will offer an evidence based therapy approach where attention will be given to a negative image, belief, and body feeling related to this event, and then to a positive belief that would indicate the issue was resolved. A typical EMDR therapy session lasts from 60-90 minutes.
I work with other individuals, couples, and families to help them find healthy solutions to the challenges of daily living and past traumas.

I understand that it can be very difficult to take steps towards positive change or to seek support when facing challenges in your life. Therefore, a goal when working with a new client is to create a comfortable environment. I strive to get to know you and to understand what you want from our work. I believe that each person’s needs will be different, so I draw from a wide range of techniques to tailor our sessions to your specific goals. These tools can help you understand life patterns, improve relationships and accomplish your personal or professional goals.
Consider your goals…Are you seeking improvements in quality of life? Enhanced relationships with family/friends? Are you lacking the necessary tools to achieve positive change? You may be stuck in old behavioral patterns that keep you from creating the life you dream of living. I’m here to help.
I treat clients who experience various difficulties including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, trauma, disability adjustment, career challenges, criminal histories, and relationships.

*WAGING WAR* Have you ever found yourself at war with yourself or others? Feeling challenged in relationships – with your partner, your friends, family, or even your boss? Feeling stuck in your emotional recovery process? Frustrated by not meeting your personal or career goals? You’re in the right place! I would love to partner with you as you learn to war fair by making deposits to improve your daily life. This means we will focus on what you can do to improve your total wellness and restore a sense of peace in your life. We will work together to help you find the freedom, acceptance, insight, and recovery you wish for.
Counseling (and supervision) are collaborative relationships. My approach is focused on building the relationship and using interactions in it as a model for life lessons. I believe people get better by being active participants in the process of therapy and being willing to dig deep to discover & discard, recover, or re-store what they find.
Personally, I’m an academic, former first responder, mother, spouse, sister, daughter, & friend, to name a few of my life roles. These can be difficult to navigate all at once. I’m not perfect at navigating it all for sure (who can be?) – yet, I continue to make progress one day at a time. I enjoy my roles and look forward to helping you navigate yours.
