I utilize trauma -informed practices and gravitate towards attachment-based, somatic, and mindfulness practices.
Sometimes our inner world seems chaotic and stressful. Sometimes we feel like we are going through life surrounded by a fog and can’t see a way out. Sometimes we experience something so significant that our life is turned upside down and we have a hard time coping. Regardless of what you are experiencing right now, it does not reflect anything about your worth and you do not have to navigate it alone. My goal as a therapist is to provide opportunities for you to work through the challenges of life while reconnecting with your authentic self and embracing your inner-knowing.

I specialize in providing a trauma focused, individual psychotherapy for adults of various ages, applying psychodynamic and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment modalities. My approach to therapy is collaborative in nature, with a great emphasis on establishing a warm supportive relationship. I utilize a context of therapeutic relationship to help clients develop insight and awareness of the unconscious elements of their psychology that have a strong impact on their lives. I assist every client in the quest to generate a deeper meaning and address internal obstacles to accomplishing personal goals.

I am trained in evidenced-based treatments of EMDR for trauma , CBT for anxiety and depression, preteen and teen therapy, and EFT for coupes in distress, as well as bringing a biblical perspective to your counseling for those that want their faith to be a part of their healing journey.
You're tired. If it's not one thing it's another. You don't know what to do. The adolescent years are so hard. You just don't know how to help your child. They struggle so much. Or maybe it's your marriage. It just plain hard. Was marriage supposed to be like this? We just can't seem to get along. You wonder, if healing is even possible, you've been going through this for so long. You ask yourself, Is something wrong with me? I just can't seem to be happy. I'm afraid or anxious all the time. In each of these scenarios, you wonder if there is any hope.

In graduate school much of my research and clinical work was focused on interpersonal trauma , men and healthy, authentic masculinity, LGBT identity and relationships, and mindfulness and spirituality.
Psychotherapist James Finley says, “The tyranny of suffering lasts only as long as it takes for compassion to show up on the scene.” Many who find themselves reading this may experience themselves as subject to the ‘tyranny of suffering’ in some way and may be searching for a compassionate presence in which they can feel safe, be deeply seen, attentively listened to, and profoundly accepted. My name is Jacob Munhoz and I invite you to consider allowing me to be that compassionate presence for you. ***Out of deep respect for the confidential nature of this work, I do not work directly with insurance providers.***

“I now see that owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” – Brené Brown My goal in therapy is to be a strong support for you as you own your story and learn to practice more love and acceptance for yourself. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary and vulnerable, and I hope to provide a safe space for you to identify your goals and begin to make positive, values-based changes toward a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

As one of the premier sleep psychologists in CA, I have experience treating sleep problems, trauma , anxiety, depression, and more.
Poor sleep affects every facet of your life. Your insomnia might be making you feel depressed or anxious, frustrated with poor memory or mental “fog,” or like you’re constantly sick. However it’s manifesting, you’re starting to see the effects: relationships are suffering, work is slipping, life feels dull, and you feel helpless to stop it. You need sound solid sleep because you need to feel better, but even more than that, you want to get to the root of this problem altogether...so you can get rid of it for good. You’re ready to not stress every night as you lie awake, to heal past wounds in your life, and to feel hope again.

Neurofeedback is able to help children, teenagers, and adults who have experienced Trauma , Post-traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSD ), ADHD and Anxiety disorders as well as a variety of other mental health symptoms. Neurofeedback, also called EEG Biofeedback or brain training, helps train your brain to self-regulate and correct issues that impact your optimal functioning. A self-regulated brain improves the functioning of the central nervous system, mental performance, emotional regulation, and physiological stability. A dysregulated brain has difficulty calming down at appropriate moments, adding physiological symptoms.

I'll teach you skills to manage difficult emotions and mental health-related body sensations, like those associated with anxiety, depression and PTSD .
Sometimes it can be really challenging to make time for ourselves and for our mental health. For some of us, it's even more difficult when our identities and culture held no space for our feelings or emotions. We may have had to put up with crossed boundaries, invalidated feelings, unrealistic expectations, and conditional love that depended on how much we have accomplished. Those difficult and maybe even traumatic experiences that we, and our families, have lived through may have been written off as "this is just how things are." Although we may want to rest and pause, we instead might begin to feel shame or guilt for doing so.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
