Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you or a loved one having difficulties managing life's pressures? Is your intimate relationship or marriage an emotional rollercoaster? Do you know someone who is out of control as a result of excessive alcohol or drugs consumption? I am a licensed psychotherapist and licensed advance substance abuse counselor that can help you or your loved ones achieve a healthy, balanced and productive life. I work with individuals who are struggling with addiction, mental health issues or stuck in unhealthy relationships. I am a very directive therapist who will push you to achieve your goals. I can help you improve your relationships or become a more effective individual. Together, we can help you gain control of your life again! My experience spans over 10 years working in the field of addiction treatment, mental health and couples therapy. As a systemic therapist, I do not consider my clients sufferings as “stand alone” and pathological, but I focus more on understanding how relationships in our daily life have shaped ourselves and created or maintain the problem. My therapy approach is interactive, strength-based and solution-oriented. I work through the lens of motivation rather than focus on your weaknesses. I always work from a place of genuine curiosity about my clients' lives, respecting and honoring each person's journey as unique and different.
