He understands that life can be quite complex and as such he helps clients who are faced with the end of relationships, grief, divorce, personal or financial losses, and existential crisis.
Jesus was passionate about psychology and helping people since he was in college and even though he went to grad school to pursue a Master of Business Administration, he did not fill fulfilled since his call was to understand why we do what we do and how to help others to help themselves. Jesus stated, “ I realized that there was never late to follow my passion. I am just fascinated to know that we will never stop learning about ourselves if we are curious enough to search inside ourselves”.
