My name is Jarron Magallanes and I am a NYC-based psychotherapist. Wherever you are in your life I want to work with you to help guide you through the complex journeys that we all face and provide you with the skills that you need to lead a life that is rich and fulfilling.
Both personally and professionally I am fully dedicated to improving health and mental health outcomes of the gay community. My work tends to be open-ended and long-term as we can explore together the complexities, challenges and opportunities that situate in our lives.
I received my Master of Science degree from Columbia University and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Washington. I am also trained and a certified practitioner by the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) and have received additional advanced training in the EMDR Flash Technique - a process by which EMDR can be used in shorter intervals to neutralize extremely painful memories in as little as 10-15 minutes. I am a graduate of the 3-year SE™ Practitioner (SEP) program through Somatic Experiencing® International/Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute. I also received training from Peter Levine, PhD and Betsy Polatin, MFA on "Trauma and the Performing Artist". As a lifelong student I fully intend to continue my educational advancement in various other treatment approaches by accredited institutes. I am currently in the one-year master training "Eye of the Needle (Near Death Experiences and Medical Trauma)" with Dr. Levine.
I am licensed to practice clinical social work and provide psychotherapy services in the State of New York (LCSW-R #: R080937), am a vetted member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW) through the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and am a Board-Certified Diplomate (BCD) in Clinical Social Work through the American Board of Examiners. I serve on faculty at Columbia University where I teach social work practice and research courses to graduate students.
