I work with clients who are experiencing out of control sexual behaviour in an inclusive non shaming atmosphere. I also help spouses and partners heal from the pain of betrayal trauma. Additionally, I believe that human sexuality has a depth of various expressions. As a therapist, my range of expertise includes providing sex therapy for couples and supporting the rainbow end of the sexuality spectrum.

When you feel all hope is lost, there is STILL hope! Vincent van Gogh said, “There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.” I consider my job to hear and feel with you the great fire of your soul—your struggles, feelings of hopelessness and worry, feeling controlled by your emotions and past trauma, repeating patterns of conflict, battling addiction, or fighting an inner battle that others may not fully understand or appreciate.

With over 20 years of experience as a therapist for both individuals and couples, I have highly specialized training in treating a variety mental health concerns and trauma related distress, including PTSD. When working with clients, I utilize a strength-based person-centred approach, while incorporating a neurobiological framework. It is important to me that clients feel a sense of comfort, trust and a level of challenge necessary for meeting their goals. I believe it is important to treat emotional stress from a mind-body perspective to achieve personal wellness and emotional balance.

Do you find yourself struggling in your relationship, no matter what you do? You may be tired of trying different things to make your relationship better, but nothing seems to make a difference and you end up feeling hopeless and alone. You might not even remember a time when it didn't feel this way. You are ready to work with your partner, as a team, to get back on track. Most of all, you are ready to feel connected and safe with the person you care about the most.

Life and healing are like a spiral. We walk it, holding the experiences life hands us (suffering, joy, and everything in between) with an invitation to grow, heal, and become our best self. I walk the spiral of my own life lead by heart and intuition, and I work with people in the same way. Healing is a sacred journey into self discovery and holding space for your process of discovery in counselling, it is my goal to support you. I am passionate about understanding your story and working collaboratively with you. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (ccc designation) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

“We’re all too vulnerable to face the hugeness of life alone. It doesn’t make sense to do that… we need each other” (Sue Johnson). I believe that meaningful connection with ourselves and others is central to our wellbeing. Unfortunately, painful past experiences and unhelpful patterns can sometimes get in the way. Relationship struggles can erode our self-worth and leave us feeling anxious, depressed, exploited, and alone. They can also create ripples that disrupt other important parts of our lives – our health, work, and kids. You're here because you’re wanting change. I'm here to provide a safe space for your journey to change.

Sexual Addiction Counsellors

When should someone seek treatment for sex addiction?

People should seek treatment for sex addiction if they cannot control their sexual thoughts or behaviours to the point that it disrupts their ability to function in daily life, for example by threatening their finances, career, or relationships. This may include spending an excessive amount of time obsessing over sex, planning sex, watching pornography, or masturbating, as well as consistently engaging in risky sexual activities, using sex to escape distressing feelings, or attempting yet failing to control sexual behavior.

What are the most common treatment options for sex addiction?

Psychotherapy is the most common treatment for sex addiction; therapy helps patients better understand their compulsive thoughts and behaviors and develop strategies to manage their desires. Therapy may be supplemented by medications, such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anti-androgens, and the alcohol and substance use medication Naltrexone, as well as support groups, such as 12-step programs.

How long does therapy take for sex addiction?

Recovering from compulsive behavior takes time and effort. There’s no precise timeline for treatment, but research suggests 12 therapy sessions may be enough to see change. Treatment for sexual compulsions requires honesty in therapy, a commitment to understanding triggers and developing coping skills, and potential lifestyle changes such as cutting out alcohol or drugs.

What if sex addiction is left untreated?

Compulsive sexual behavior can have serious repercussions if left unaddressed. For example, if sexual obsessions consume the vast majority of a person’s time, they may lose their job. If they can’t stop paying for sex, their finances may suffer. If they’re dishonest in their relationships, their partner may leave them. If they consistently feel shame, they may struggle with anxiety, depression, or loneliness. Therapy can help people develop the tools to manage sexual thoughts and behaviors that feel uncontrollable.
