(M.S.W., L.C.S.W.)

About Me

Over an extensive career, I have received training (through a post-graduate Psychoanalytic Institute, as well as my graduate clinical training) and worked with individuals, couples, and families. My work with couples has spanned various constellations within these dyads, including but not limited to married and unmarried domestic partners; same sex and heterosexual couples, and individuals in open and polyamorous romantic relationships.
My goal in couples' work is to establish a specific and measurable safe zone, where the Couples' limits and boundaries may be explored. This exploration can also be helpful in identifying their latent and manifest wish for reconciliation, or parting ways, or possibly further define another and more organic solution customized by them during treatment. In this manner, the work serves to as a way of empower the couple to determine its future, enhancing their self-determination, as a romantic unit, where each person, is validated and taught to assert values and principles which can all be integrated towards a higher quality of life, with lesser pain, conflict and uncertainty.

Jorge responds to our messages in a timely manner. He gave my boyfriend and I great tools to help us to communicate. I believe our outcome with the help of Jorge will be great.

Jorge listens and recognizes the issues plaguing my relationship. He is different from my usual therapist who offers nothing but an unbiased ear; Jorge gives great suggestions that my partner and I have implemented into our relationship. We are now doing really well and we credit Jorge for our success in overcoming this rough patch.

Jorge was on point from the moment we started therapy with him.
After we filled out the worksheets to get started, and know where we stood, as far as our points of view from within the relationship. He was able to focus in on what was causing our issues.
At first we felt that we were incorrectly “diagnosed,” but after much work and discussion on our end we found he was correct.
I found Jorge to be very thoughtful in his interaction with us, and also down to earth. He was able to effectively communicate what the issues we were having where, and how we might be able to work together to resolve our problems and avoiding blow ups all together. I would readily recommend him to anyone seeking a therapist to overcome an impasse in their relationship.

Jorge has been a great help to us. He listens, he offers suggestions, he offers solutions and most of all he follows up during the next session. My husband and I both enjoy talking to him. More importantly, we don't feel like he's taking sides.

I appreciate the personal interaction. I feel like I can trust this man and he gives great information. The experiences that he has witnessed let me know that if my relationship can work it will.

Jorge has been a true blessing to us in just the three sessions we've had. He has a laid back nature that makes it easy to share and makes us both comfortable. He has a great sense of humor and is clearly knowledgeable in his practice. These sessions always make me initially uncomfortable, but Jorge definitely helps make it a more enjoyable experience.

Jorge is an awesome listener and mediator of personal marriage affairs. He really got down to hearing our individual pain points and help navigate an emotional topic toward better resolution. His wisdom and guidance is priceless as he equips us each session with tool to improve our communication.

Written by F.R. on Jan 07, 2018 after counseling with Jorge for 9 months on issues concerning relationship

Jorge is unique in ways that surpass ordinary, everyday counsel. Jorge's availability reaches beyond weekly sessions and touches the spirit of one's inner self; awakening the mind and allowing one's floodgates to run freely (rather than harboring stagnant toxins). But note, Jorge's willingness to begin in the pool of toxins, not alongside the edge is what makes him unique. You've got to "really want" whatever it is that you seek from counseling, and Jorge will be there to see you through.

Written by B.R. on Aug 24, 2017 after counseling with Jorge for 4 months on issues concerning relationship

Jorge has been extremely helpful in our time of crisis. He is respectful and understanding when we need to change our meetings on short notice due to circumstances beyond our control. He helps us learn to set limits and encourages us to persevere when our attempts meet resistance. He uses analogies effectively.

Written by A.S. on Jun 23, 2017 after counseling with Jorge for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I love that Jorge does not let us "off the hook" when we try to tap dance, evade, or shirk responsibility. We both have strong personalities and could easily take over any conversation, but not with him. If we go off topic, he is there to tenderly AND sternly guide us back. I absolutely love that about him. I am getting so much from his exercises and guidance.
