Licensed Psychotherapist



Individual therapy can feel like foreign territory to first timers. 
Therapy is designed to help you achieve your goals as fast as possible in a safe and dynamic environment.

WHAT TO EXPECT: In most cases individual sessions are scheduled weekly. Depending upon the type of therapy, the discussion may be led by the client or by the therapist. Everything is completely confidential unless the client talks about harming self or others. I realize therapy is foreign to most participants so I take extra care to ensure my clients feel respected, safe, challenged, and protected.

Specializing in Anxiety, Panic, Phobias, Performance Coaching, Depression, Addiction (Sex & Substance).
Over 17 years of clinical practice Utilizing AEDP, Somatice Experiencing, Exposure Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, Meditation, Mindfulness, Coaching, and Spiritual Formation. We offer therapy both in person & virtual counseling available. Jonathan Rios is fully licensed with extensive training.


Any athlete can relate to the experience of performance anxiety and the sensation of panic in the body. Fear takes the reigns & your cognitive abilities seemingly flutter away. 

Our work together will be catered to your needs but will likely target the cultivation of impregnable confidence, relentless focus, and development of your mental skills to ensure you perform at the level you know you can. 

Your issues may operate outside of your conscious control (meaning you aren’t aware & can’t understand why you keep making the same mistakes or seem to be lacking confidence). The effect of hypercritical coaching or abusive parental figures, may be hardwired into your body memory. Therapy will seek to bring you the shift you need, both in mind, and in body.

What is mental toughness? Mental toughness in sport or performance is the developed psychological edge that will enable you to be more consistent & better than your opponents.

Every elite performer has this one quality but it takes work. Mental skills training is the X factor to take your game to the next level. 



topics we're likely to touch on.

Lack confidence (don’t believe in yourself?) 

Perhaps you’re a perfectionist with a pervasive fear of embarrassment or humiliation. 

Maybe you’re just looking to overcome negative self talk leading to poor performance. 

Looking to develop grit & mental toughness. 

Experiencing a “Slump”- a string of bad performances .

Struggling to recognize who you are outside of your “sports identity”. 

Looking for practical techniques to use on game day. 

Having a difficult time taking charge of your nerves 

When we came to therapy we were desperate. My son's anxiety was really severe. After just a few sessions the changes were remarkable! Panic attacks & dry heaving are a thing of the past. Thank you Jonathan!

Concerned Mother

I couldn't believe it. My anxiety was through the roof. After 3 sessions with Jonathan I went from having numerous panic attacks a day to just one in 7 days. I wish I had sought help sooner. Thanks Jonathan, I feel like myself again.

College student

I came to therapy because my confidence was suffering. I knew I needed to get a handle on my mental game to perform at my best. Jonathan understands the mind of an athlete. Our sessions really gave me the boost I needed. My performances are far more consistent and dynamic. I'm playing with joy again. Thanks Jonathan.
