You are ready to feel free and live an authentic life! Healthy relationships and freedom from addictions, depression, low self-esteem, and excessive stress, anger, and anxiety are possible and vital for enjoying a fulfilling life. At times we need help from an experienced professional who listens, understands, and believes our pain--someone who can help us overcome and grow through a crisis. Making sure that each client feels safe and comfortable while talking about personal concerns is my fundamental priority. Then, I help people just like you to overcome pain, trauma and negative patterns, and rebuild hope and relationships!
Using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Sex Therapy, I help individuals and couples enjoy positive, lasting change. Through counseling and workshops, I help couples develop a closer bond and lasting intimacy! I help adults heal in my Pornography & Sex Addiction and Partners Betrayal Recovery groups.
You are taking a great step right now! Your healing has started! From the start, I view the whole person (mind, body, and spirit) and work to identify each individual's and couple's existing strengths and resources and help put those valuable assets to work for them. We consider thoughts, emotions, and bodily responses to produce an enjoyable, balanced life!

Men Healing from Sexual Betrayal & Affair

Whether your partner has persistently viewed pornography, engaged in cybersex, cheated in a one-time or ongoing affair, the traumatic impact on your mind, body and heart can be devastating! The news feels overwhelming, your life is disrupted, and you may have trouble managing parts of your life as you are left to pick up the pieces. And trust and forgiveness are far-off concepts. Whether you decide to continue the relationship or not, joining a safe, supportive community while learning insights and skills to move through the traumatic effects is vital for your well-being. Pre-consultation required.
