Jason Duenas is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Houston, TX. Jason specializes in helping people in relationships identify the origin of their conflicts, build healthy communication practices within the relationship, and take the next steps to grow a loving bond in the place of nasty conflict. Many of Jason’s clients feel stuck in their relationships, especially stuck in heated arguments, repetitive fights, and difficult thoughts about breaking up. Jason helps clients rekindle their love and restructure their relationships around respect, compassion, and healthy boundaries.
Jason’s approach to therapy includes elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), the Gottman Method, and many more. He encourages clients to reflect on their feelings and emotional reactions, helping them identify where those feelings come from. He teaches clients how to work together as partners and understand where the other person is coming from in their feelings and desires. He empowers clients to change unhealthy or harmful patterns that hold them back from feeling happy in their daily lives.
Jason creates a kind, empathetic atmosphere in his sessions.
