Eu trabalho com individuos e casais presencialmente num consultorio em Mission Valley, ou por Telehealth. Não existe cliente igual, todos somos diferentes, mas existem fenônemos, dores e problemas com caracteristicas parecidas que podem ser tratados. Meu objetivo é ajuda-lo a compreender o que está acontecendo e desenvolver novos caminhos que sejam sustentáveis e que diminuam o desconforto, a dor e os problemas.

Através do meu trabalho para setores sem fins lucrativos, públicos e privados, desenvolvi uma paixão implacável por ajudar crianças, adolescentes e adultos a superar muitos desafios da vida. Considero um privilégio ter tratado essas populações de uma variedade de origens com condições de saúde mental igualmente variadas. Eu trabalhei com criminosos sexuais juvenis, delinquentes juvenis, crianças adotivas, cronicamente mentalmente doente, e criminalmente insano, casais, para citar alguns. Embora, seus problemas eram diferentes, seus objetivos eram os mesmos, para viver uma vida cheia de felicidade auto-suficiência e sucesso.

Em nossa primeira sessão juntos, lhe dou as boas-vindas ao meu consultorio e convido-o a torná-lo seu próprio espaço seguro. Eu explico que a terapia é um processo, um relacionamento e uma aventura. É também um presente de descoberta e renovação que só você pode dar a si mesmo. Nesse processo, meu papel é ouvir, apoiar, desafiar, guiar e celebrar você, à medida que você se torna mais corajoso para encarar as partes de si mesmo que estava evitando, aceitando mais a si mesmo e aos outros e sendo plenamente presente na sua vida.

Welcome, Bem Vindo, Bienvenido! Thanks for stopping by my page. I'm a native Brazilian and can offer sessions in English, Portuguese , or Spanish. I live and work in University Heights but have been enjoying life in beautiful San Diego since 1996. If we work together, I am thrilled to share my culturally sensitive and unique therapeutic approach with you. I will be an active participant in our sessions. And yes, that means, together, we will likely laugh, cry, discuss relationships, worries, fears, and/or self sabotaging but all in an effort to help you move forward into the person you know that you know you can be.

I have lived in different areas of the United States and abroad, developing meaningful connections with people from various backgrounds, learning Spanish and Portuguese along the way.
Confronting the challenges that accompany our lives can be daunting and result in a deviation from the expectations we have of ourselves and those with whom we interact. I am here to assist you in the process to heighten awareness and gain more meaningful and fulfilling experiences in your life through psychotherapy. I utilize the DAFT (Depth & Freedom Therapy) approach that combines various counseling theories and techniques, philosophical tenets, and spiritual teachings to collaborate with clients in order to strengthen individual identity while considering the impact of past experiences, modern day socio-cultural influences, and current personal issues.

It does take courage to set up that first appointment, and the fit between therapist and client is an important one for the success of therapy. I encourage my clients to ask questions and express concerns about therapy and determine whether my approach and style are a good fit for you. Some common reasons people seek therapy have to do with self-exploration, how to communicate better with people, and how to cope with stressful life situations. My approach is a collaborative one and goal oriented. My focus is to support you find healthier coping skills to manage the challenging situations life might bring.

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.***

As a therapist, I am guided by the idea that the more effectively dependent we are on each other, the more independent and adventurous we become. I also believe that the quality of our relationships can deeply impact our mental wellness in general. Humans are bonding, relational beings who need to feel secure and loved in their close relationships. We need to know that we matter to our loved ones. We need to feel heard, seen and accepted for who we are. It is when we don't feel heard and seen and stop feeling security and trust in our relationships that issues arise.

The beauty of this -our shared life’s journey- is that we can aspire to embody its greatest gifts: love, fulfillment, clarity and peace. And yet, at times, we encounter challenges and changes that bring forth feelings of stress, depression, anxiety -or numbness and disorientation. And it is often at these junctures that psychotherapy can help; for in essence, the therapeutic journey is about finding richness even while in the land of disenchantment … and healing even while walking through pain.

Identity issues can cause intense feelings of isolation preventing so many people from living the way that they yearn to. This is especially true when there are layers of addiction, difficult relational patterns and past traumas. We become so much stronger when we face these things with an unconditionally present ally.

I am a therapist who offers an in-depth, holistic approach to therapy focusing on the underlying issues instead of just treating the surface symptoms. I provide therapeutic empowerment for Teens and Adults. Having experience working with children and understanding early attachment injuries has allowed me increased sensitivity when working with adults looking to heal and empower their inner child. Many of our adult negative behaviors and choices stem from unresolved and often unconscious childhood issues that once brought to awareness can facilitate positive changes in the present.

We use to have hard times whenever faced by difficulties that challenge our ego. Most of the time, we tend to avoid coping with these challenges, or we do deal with them in destructive ways, mainly because of not having learned more assertive functional ways to take care of ourselves, relationships and circumstances in life. My approach is focused on promoting your insight about why you think, feel and react the ways you do, supporting you to take advantage of your own potentials, improve skills and guiding you on taking good care of your core needs and expectations.

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.
