Thank you for reaching out and considering my services. I have specialized training to help those struggling with process (behavioural) and substance addictions, especially sex or and porn addictions. I also specialize in therapy for couples and for individuals who wrestle with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and identity issues. I am the Founder and Clinical Director of The Whitestone Clinic (www.whitestone.clinic), which has several trained counsellors and Registered Psychotherapists ready to help you. I am presently supervised by Dr. Martin Rovers, PhD, Registered Psychologist (www.marriagetherapistsottawa.ca).

Sex Addiction effects at least 3-6% of the population and negatively impacts Partners of Sex Addicts, too. But there is a way out of the shame! As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), I use effective Task-Centred therapy approaches to help you reclaim a healthy, integrated sexual identity.
