Steven Presta, MSW, RSW
Do you ever feel like your stress, low self-esteem, low confidence, and possibly even anxiety, are getting in the way of you living your best life? Do you ever get told to “suck it up and be a man?” It is hard to manage these feelings on any given day, let alone a pandemic! Are you trying to quit smoking/drinking/drugs and looking for support, or for someone who just gets it? I can help explore these concerns and areas with you while offering different ways to cope and manage these overwhelming and “out of control” feelings.
I am very passionate about helping individuals grow and become better versions of themselves. I have a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Toronto, and a diploma in Concurrent disorders, which means I have experience working with the unique dynamic of mental health and addictions. I have helped individuals stay sober, quit smoking, and manage anxiety, stress, and self-esteem for over five years.
I work from a client-centred, strengths-based approach, and have been trained in, and utilize several modalities and interventions for treatment such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based interventions, and motivational interviewing (MI). I believe that you are the expert on you, not the other way around. I strive to help you help yourself, and act as a guide to exploring and gently challenging your own thoughts and beliefs as we discover new insights and strengths about yourself while working together.
