I am interested in wellness and holistic approaches to therapy. My work focuses on helping my clients achieve growth. Growth can take many forms in one's life such as: improved relationships, improved sense of self, transition across barriers, achievement of goals, career success, reduction of painful/unwanted symptoms, etc. My approach focuses on understanding the core of suffering and stagnation while uncovering what stands in the way of growth. I firmly believe in providing expertise, care and compassion to each and every client.

Dr. Michael Villanueva offers an unique approach to traditional counseling with an emphasis on Jungian psychology and two domains: Conditions more rooted in expressed psychological symptoms, and conditions more rooted in neurophysiological symptoms. This is a distinction reflecting years of experience in both counseling and analyzing the human EEG (AKA ‘brainwaves’). He can counsel and treat with various forms of talk therapy as well as analyze and train your neural pathways using neurofeedback. Dr. Villanueva also offers telehealth counseling.

I tend to think of therapy as tupperware, it’s the container where we can unload what is weighing us down. Our personal backgrounds; ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, religion, (dis)abilities, to name a few, are integral to who we are. These aspects can have a deep impact on the way we view, think of, the world and experience mental health. This is why a multicultural approach lays the foundation for my work with clients. Navigating healing while at the same time still existing within systemic oppression, marginalization, and erasure/assimilation is not easy. This is a safe container to do so.

You’ve been working hard and pushing through the instability and frustrations of a global pandemic for years now. Maybe you’ve even recognized the value of mental health, attempted to set boundaries at work, or added self-care tasks to your to-do list. From the outside, so much in your life seems to be going “right” but deep down you’re exhausted. Your efforts to leave work at work and to listen to a meditation app in the morning aren’t cutting it. You just aren’t happy and you’re not sure why. You may have even been to therapy before and learned some decent strategies, but didn’t get the deep results you were hoping for. I can help

What type of San Diego mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
