I was born in the U.S., raised in Colombia, completed my military service in Israel, and finally settled down in Miami, a city I call home today. My path has made me a mother of three, a wife, a friend, an entrepreneur, a daughter, a sister, an aunt… And like so many other women, I still find myself seeking balance within the many different roles and versions of myself in daily life.
However, my path isn’t just what I’ve done as a person. It’s the sum of my experiences as a whole, including my life as a non-conventional systemic therapist, which began with my Bachelor’s in Psychology and Special Education. This led me to experience how many children’s difficulties come from challenges within the couple’s relationship and family dynamics. Inspired by this, I pursued my master’s in Marriage and Family Counseling, which has given me the tools to help those around me discover the courage to simply be.
Trying to fit into the “traditional therapist” mold didn’t work for me, I needed more, I wanted more. And finally, I decided to embrace my own truth in a field such as counseling and systemic therapy. As a result, P.A.T.H Therapy was born. As my own therapeutic model, P.A.T.H Therapy is based on possibilities, acceptance, trust, and hope. It is designed to transform the therapeutic experience for those who embark on it.
P.A.T.H. is the result of the benefits I see in neuro-emotional exercises and sensorial experiences to unblock what’s on the inside. It’s focused around the magic of a whiteboard as a tool for self-discovery. As well as on the empathy, trust, and familiarity that emerge when I bring my own experiences to the table, making the healing process a friendlier one. It’s also established upon my belief that possibilities are the beginning of everything and that conscious decisions are vital to really understand our identity.
Like you, I am my process and my path, a mix of everything that has moved, shaped, and made me, myself. It’s been a road filled with inspiring ‘aha’ moments and packed with the motivation of being part of people’s way towards themselves. I am a woman who would be honored to guide you to a less overwhelming life, a freer mind and a closer understanding of the hope new possibilities bring.
I’m Jael Toledo, and I’m excited to bring you back to yourself giving you the courage to simply be.
