Hector Pereles | Sandy Springs

Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor

Anxiety, worry, and stress can cripple anyone’s life to the point of fatigue, social isolation, and depression. People are left feeling lonely, inadequate, socially anxious, and even panicky. Avoiding others and self-medicating their anxiety with alcohol or drugs leaves them feeling even worse! Hector helps people grow and expand into a state of freedom, self-confidence, and empowerment to embrace a life worth living. Hector himself has recovered from the symptoms of anxiety disorders; therefore, compared to other therapists, he truly understands anxiety from the inside out!

Traumatic experiences such as childhood abuse and neglect can haunt people for a long time. Reliving distressing thoughts, flashbacks, and nightmares can make the past seem real when, in reality, it is not. Despite the best self-help efforts, after a short time, some people return to the "same old, same old" without getting the results they long for. That's discouraging, isn't it? Long-lasting, personal change is possible. Relief is real; don't lose hope. This is too important.

As a psychotherapist, Hector has been helping people for over a decade. Using effective methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness, Hector assists individuals in developing coping skills that they can implement naturally. Through quicker, yet still effective, methods like eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR) and hypnosis, Hector helps rewrite negative stories stored in the subconscious mind, where irrational fears and anxiety reside. In using these methods, people achieve a more thorough renovation of mind, soul, and spirit. Hector has also spent several years helping people overcome addictions. Evening and Saturday appointments are available. Check out Hector’s website and call today for a free, 15-minute phone consultation!
