Finding the right therapist can be one of the toughest decisions someone can make. A good therapist will not try to give you the answers, but rather guide you to the point where you can begin to ask the right questions and search for the honest answers that may finally lead to the clarity we all seek.
THE LEADING EXPERT IN TREATMENT FOR ALCOHOL AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE
About Dr. Howard Samuels
I won’t begin by telling you I have all the answers. Or that I can cure you. I can’t tell you exactly how you might change, or when. That’s the thing about treatment. It’s different for everyone. What I can tell you is that I have struggled. I have failed and succeeded. I have navigated through the unpredictability of mental health issues and substance abuse/addiction both as a patient and a therapist. Through my years of experience I have developed the tools to help not only myself but others, as well as an incredible network of mental health professionals that I can refer to should I simply not be the right fit for you.
I began my practice as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) over 20 years ago, and received my Doctorate in Psychology (PsyD) in 1998. In the 1990’s I worked as Clinical Director of Promises, before founding The Hills Treatment Center in 2010. I also serve on the Board of Directors for a non-profit facility called Friendly House, the nations oldest women’s substance abuse treatment center. But I began my personal journey in recovery much earlier.
