Things are really hard right now - it is more important than ever to have support. That looks different for everyone, but whether it's parenting, relationship, work, family - or all of the above, create some space and a plan to walk through it - together. It is a journey of insight, compassion, respect, honesty, integrity and courage. Supervised by Pablo Navarette-Martinez LMFT#113991

John Jakubowski Practice Description
It's such a beautiful, complicated dance working your way through this life. I partner with clients to settle into their true nature in letting the mind rest, and allowing another language to rise, alchemizing resistance into acceptance, heaviness into lightness, and complexity into clarity. I believe in "authenticity" and "right fit" - the best indicators of therapeutic success. I am not silent, nor invisible and invest in your success in a radical awareness. Walk with me - you're not alone in this.
