Jonny Rios

Jonathan "Jonny" Rios MS, LMHC


By nature, Jonny is a dynamic individual. It doesn't take long to see how that translates into his love for helping the women and men of Desert Rose break free from the influences that keep them from fully engaging with their purpose in life. 

 A Psychotherapist with more than 12 years of addiction and mental health counseling experience, Jonny is responsible for individual and group therapy for our clients and their families. He thrives when tasked with psychosocial assessments or creating individual treatment plans, because he feels that understanding each person’s needs is key to beginning the journey toward a successful treatment experience.

 Jonny also provides didactic lectures and works closely with each of our clinical team members, bringing value to the whole as an integral member of our family. With bachelor's and master’s degrees in Counseling Psychology, he developed the ability to deal with crisis intervention that is supported by a chemical dependency psycho-education. This affords those in our care with a truly qualified counselor who manages each client with the utmost concern for their well-being. Married with four daughters of his own, he enjoys living life to the fullest, whether playing soccer or doing anything ocean-related.
