A few months ago, my husband and I had some issues that almost broke our marriage, I was really hopeless, so I searched online and called the first counselling services that I found. On the first appointment I was impressed with Windy’s listening skills the respect and the compassion with which he addressed our issues. He provided us the right tools we needed just for that day and we went home assured that he was the person to help us work on our marriage. After a few sessions, we acquired enough tools to function better. Since then, my husband and I have been referring our friends who are going through relationship issues.

I ran into some troubles with law, and was facing tough times, I was referred by my lawyer to Windy, the first consultation did not go well at all. I remember him asking me respectfully about my addictions issues, but since I was still in denial I did not disclose the truth. He told me that I was not ready then, and I got very angry and left. I called him a few days after, apologized and asked for another appointment during which I profusely self-disclosed, he hugged me and said “welcome here, you and I will work together to help yourself” what Windy did not know is that in my childhood I did not experience hugs and love. That day he proved me that I deserved love.
We worked together as he promised for 6 months at the end of which he wrote a report which my lawyer was highly appreciative of because it helped my case in the court. Today I have a decent job and and now building a family with my beautiful fiancée. I highly recommend this guy to anyone who is struggling with addiction.

Windy is really a great guy. What I observed is that he respects people, he welcomes them no matter what their issues are, he is not judgemental. He assured me that his office was my place to vent, bring all my burdens, discuss them and find solutions together, Windy provided me tools that help me today to be the family man my wife always wanted me to be. We owe the stability of our relationship to Windy’s support and expertise.

When a professional is compassionate, it shows, it also helps his clients to be empowered supported and rebuild their self-esteems. Windy incarnate all these professional qualities. I am the living evidence who benefited from Windy s help and support when I was experiencing a severe depression and was helpless.
