About Me

My Christian faith is my foundation. I am blessed to have received an excellent education & training as a counselor. I am experienced, competent & confident in my abilities as a counselor. I am a firm believer in Christian principles and am energized by the power of God. I also recognize that true wisdom comes from God and therefore depend upon this as my source for helping my clients. I can help you make the best decisions & help you do your best in difficult circumstances by listening, building a therapeutic relationship with you & earning your trust.
I may at times speak with professional colleagues about our work without asking permission, but all identities will be disguised.
 Clients under 18 do not have full confidentiality from the parents.
 Special note on confidentiality with children and adolescents: Personal information shared by a child during an individual session will be kept confidential unless it involves imminent danger to the child or someone else. Young people will not confide in a counselor if they believe that personal information will be revealed to their parents. A general summary can be provided at any time upon request.
Please Note:
I do not perform home study evaluations, nor do I assist with legal custody issues. I do not work with couples. If this is an issue, I shall refer you to someone who specializes in these types of issues.
I do not provide psychiatric diagnosis
I do not provide ESA (Emotional Support Animal) letters
I do not perform fit for duty evaluations or assessments
I do not work with addiction issues

Seeking a counselor to face your challenges can be overwhelming, but having the courage to find a counselor that is good fit for may be one of the best choices you can make.

Please note that before our first meeting, there is an intake process which I can help walk you through.

Written by E.L. on Nov 24, 2021 after therapy with Jonathan for 2 weeks

In the short time Jonathan Ybarra has been my therapist, he has helped me think more positively and feel like I am not a lost cause. He listens and I never feel that there is any judgement in his response. He is an excellent therapist!!
