Eight months ago, before I started seeing Dr Farin, I was quite literally ready to hurl myself off a bridge. I was lonely, lethargic, stressed out, and ready to end it all as soon as possible; less than a year later I've learned to love myself, alleviate my anxiety, and savor every moment in which I am lucky enough to be alive in this beautiful, mysterious, and complex universe that we live in. The work that I've been able to do with Isaac over the past few months has genuinely saved my life and I could not recommend his form of solution-oriented therapy any more highly.
I have had the opportunity to meet other psychologists during my childhood and I know the wonderful work they do. Today, years later, I am having the help of Adriana. In a short period of time, I was able to see how human, caring and professional she is. Now I know that everything is cyclical, and that we are able to control our mind and attitude during this walk called life. God gave me the opportunity to meet Adriana. I told my husband, she is an angel. She does her job with love. May God always bless you, Adriana!
Muchas gracias por toda tu ayuda! Siento que aprendi muchas cosas importantes para mi felicidad individual al igual que como pareja. Aprendi que todos somos personas diferentes con diferentes gustos, virtudes, y defectos. Que cada uno tiene una diferente manera de amar y expectativas de como recibir amor. Tambien que hay que estar en paz con uno mismo para poder amar, y hacer cosas que te hagan feliz como persona que no necesariamente involucren a tu pareja. Entender el background de cada uno puede ayudar a explicar maneras de actuar/reaccionar ante diferentes situaciones. El arbol familiar puede influenciar inconscientemente el patron de comportamiento de cada persona en una relacion. Controlar la influencia de fuerzas externas a una relacion es importante. En mi caso el disminuir el consumo del alcohol a un nivel mas saludable o acceptable hasta el punto que yo sea quien lo controle en vez de al reves.
After a break up, I felt that I needed therapy. In 6 months of sessions with Adriana I have learned that: If you have no challenges, your life is not moving and you are not growing. Nothing is happening. This week I felt like I wanted to celebrate my challenges. I want to celebrate the stress of my life. Thank God I have things to be stressed about. Things that make me grow and learn. I have also learned to understand and not fear things that are out of my control. I have learned to let them go. I am now looking for the solutions of things I can control. When I read my journal this week I saw that I could be aware of my feelings, I could name them, be responsible for them, and look for the solution for my problems. Obrigadaa! (Thank you!)
Adriana is an angel on Earth. When you leave her office you feel that there's hope, that you will get through, and that you will overcome any obstacle in your way. She gives you motivation, and inspiration to turn your life around. Our family is blessed to have her in our lives.
Gracias a Dios por ponerte en nuestro camino, porque pudiste ayudarme a amar a mi esposo sin miedo, a conectarnos y a ser uno. A saber que callar no es de débiles y a aprender a conocer mis limites. A que no puedo cambiar a nadie mas que a mi, pero que al hacerlo todo cambiara para mejor.
Thank you for our sessions. I feel a greater sense of purpose and happiness in my life. My relationships are stronger and I am more healthy in both my mind and body. A special thanks for guiding and believing in me during this journey of my first published book. I hope you enjoy your copy.
This is a note of thanks for giving me hope and a person who did not judge me and who made me feel good about myself- which is not often easy to do.
