If you're struggling with serious parenting challenges, I'm here to help.

My name is Ruben Jimenez. I’m a licensed therapist (LCSW) and I specialize in working with at-risk youth and their families. My focus is on the transition periods before, during, and after therapeutic treatment. I also assist young adults who are having a difficult time establishing their independence (sometimes called 'failure to launch').

I’ve been serving as a counselor and family coach for over ten years and I’ve seen it all. I can help you move past the fear, anxiety, guilt, and anger you may be feeling. I'll help you be the best parent you can be during this important transition.

My book, The Road Home, is a guide for parents welcoming their child back to life at home (and beyond) after therapeutic treatment. This is a crucial time, yet it’s profoundly underserved by the treatment community. My mission is to bridge the gap between life in treatment and life at home.

If you're looking for straight answers about what to expect—and how to best take care of yourself and your child—while navigating the world of treatment, I’m here for you. Even with all the uncertainty, there's a lot to be hopeful about. I'll help you avoid the wrong turns and move forward in the right direction. I will help you help your son or daughter grow into a healthy, responsible adult—and help your family find its way to healing. Read more » about Home Page Copy
