About Me:

Juan Rios holds a BSW (Southern Connecticut State University) and MSW (Rutgers University), and is currently enrolled in the highly acclaimed Doctorate of Social Work program at Rutgers University. Rios was recognized for his partnership efforts by the Department of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly known as DYFS) in April 2012. He has also received various awards for his work in the Latino community, including a proclamation from the City Council of Philadelphia.


He has experience in both private mental health and government agencies. He utilizes a person-centered approach to therapy and his philosophy is that the client is the expert. His clinical modalities range from existential, Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psycho-educational, Bowen family systems and holistic well-ness integration. He provides therapy sessions in both English and Spanish along with group and couple's work.


Rios believes that “We, as humans, are profoundly social creatures.” He believes relationships to be central to how we understand and navigate our world and gain meaning. Positive and honest relationships, including the therapy relationship, allow for healing and facilitate growth. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance in our work together, as is establishing and maintaining a positive working relationship. Please know that I am sensitive to cultural, religious and ethnic diversities and will treat you with the utmost compassion and respect.


“The only journey is the journey within.”-Rainer Maria Rilke
