Fernando Perez

Registered Social Worker
MSW, RSW

Throughout the years I have accumulated a vast experience in the field of psychotherapy and have the ability to work in Spanish, French and English. As a therapist I work with individuals, couples and families. I treat each individual case as unique and according to how it affects the individual(s). I strongly believe that each individual possesses the strength to work and change his/her life.

 

I have experience in the following areas:

  • Addiction Depression                 
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Children and adolescents
  • Marital issues
  • Depression
  • Family
  • Grief
  • Life transition
  • Self-esteem

 

My credentials are:

  • Master of Social Work 
  • Member of the College of Social Workers
  • Addiction Certificate from the St. Michael College of U. of T. 

 

In couple counselling, I have experience working with:

  • Cultural, racial and linguistic issues
  • Issues of separation and its effect on the children
  • Relationship issues
  • The effect of the extended family in the life of the couple

 

I have experience in the area of Addiction:

  • Assessment and referrals to treatment centers
  • Counselling individuals struggling with alcohol and/or drug addiction
  • Working in relapse prevention with the individual user
  • Working with the family of the individual user

 

In our modern life we all experience some form of stress, anxiety and difficulties in every day life. I provide each person with a safe forum to express and discuss the affecting issue(s). Through talk and guided discussion of the problem, the individual often finds the answer to his/her problem. Since in therapy there is no “one size fits all” I am willing to explore and employ different approaches, depending on the issues and the circumstances.
