Professional statement

Jason Duenas is a Licensed Professional Counselor who practices in Texas and Florida. Jason specializes in helping people in relationships identify the origin of their conflicts, build healthy communication practices, and take the next steps to grow a loving bond in the place of messy conflict. Many of Jason’s clients feel stuck in their relationships, especially in heated arguments, perpetual fights, and complicated thoughts about breaking up. Jason helps clients go through the healing process, even from the trauma of betrayal and infidelity. He then helps couples rekindle their love and restructure their relationships around respect, compassion, and healthy boundaries.

Jason’s approach to working with couples in therapy uses a heavily research-supported approach called Gottman Methods. 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 satisfied in their relationships and in their lives. It is very practical but also addresses the underlying emotions and even traumas that influence the conflicts and disconnections.

Jason creates a kind, empathetic atmosphere in his sessions. He is particularly passionate about helping clients from minority backgrounds and understands the importance of culturally competent mental healthcare. His support shows clients that they aren’t alone in their struggles as he listens with a compassionate ear and empowers them to grow healthier bonds with those they love.


Message to clients

First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit this website and read this page. If you are here, it's probably fair to say that something is going on in your life that you're struggling with. I get it. And I don't think you or anyone should go through the struggle alone. If you'd allow me, I'd love to work with you, walk with you through the struggle, help you accomplish your goals, and get to your whole self. I do that with compassion, understanding, and empirically researched therapeutic methods. I'm also practical and help clients find what works for them.

Apart from the awesome privilege of working with clients in therapy, I am married with a son and Pomeranian dog named Moja. I am an avid reader and traveler. Although not a performing musician I really enjoy playing around on a number of instruments including a guitar, a set of drums, and a keyboard. I also enjoy Latin dance.
