Having done my own counseling I know that it is important to find the right fit. I have been a therapist/counselor since 1992 when I began my training at Purdue University. I specialize in marriage/family therapy, addiction, anger management, and sexual issues. I have 25+ years of experience treating sexual addiction . My overall goal is to "work myself out of a job" by empowering clients to work through core issues, gain needed insights and tools, and make behavioral changes which allow for more success and fulfillment both personally and professionally. I strive to create a safe space and give hope and direction from the start.

There is much to be gained from coordinating your care with couple's and family counseling that is expert in sexual addiction recovery.
Are you hurt and angry about the DISCOVERY or DISCLOSURE of your partner's or spouse's SEXUAL SECRETS? Have some of the things you once trusted and relied upon in life later proven to be false or been buried beneath layers and layers of deception? Do you know the experience of wanting stability as you attempt to stand on the shifting sands of overwhelming uncertainty? Your distress is valid and what you're feeling is quite normal, and yet it's all incredibly disconcerting. Fortunately, you do have someone to talk to. I'll listen, answer your questions, and help guide you through this difficult time. I hope you'll give us a call!

My passion is to help men understand what they want from life and to address what is getting in the way. Issues that get in the way include addictions of all kinds, depression, anxiety, and anger. Perhaps a partner is unhappy and suggests change needs to happen and soon, or else. Asking for help is often the most difficult decision for men to make. The pain and fear we feel tells us something is wrong. But if we ask for help what does it say about us? Shouldn't we be able to handle this on our own? The most courageous thing you can do is to reach out to and ask for help. I am offering that help. No Judgement.

When sexual behaviors become your most important need, you’re in a crisis. Using sex no longer works. As you’ve experienced, your behaviors will keep getting worse. You are in a downward spiral that has no bottom. How far will you go? At times of clarity, you’re disgusted with your behaviors. "How did I end up here"? You have engaged in behaviors you swore you'd never do. You spent money you needed, time you didn't have and violated the trust of those closest to us. “Are you willing to give up what matters, your family, job, and my happiness to sex”? Hope is within reach!

What is keeping you from living the life you want? Therapy can be a powerful tool to identify goals and remove obstacles that may be preventing you from experiencing more fulfilling relationships with yourself, your career, and other people. If you are experiencing depression or anxiety, abusing substances, or having relationship difficulty, the process of therapy can be a useful way to discover how to create change. By exploring current and historical patterns, a greater awareness and understanding can emerge, allowing for more choice.

You’re looking for help because you’re pretty sure your past is intruding on your present. You’re reacting in ways that aren’t helpful. Your situation would probably be difficult for anyone, but you’re pretty sure that your past is making it more difficult than it needs to be. You can see where this is going, and it’s a trip you’d rather not take. But it seems like no matter how hard you try you end up doing the same things again and again and again… You CAN stop. You can give up the wrong relationships, the destructive patterns, the addictions, the anger, the trauma from your past.

If you find yourself frequently feeling overwhelmed, struggling in your relationships or using alcohol, drugs, sex, food, exercise, pornography, or other types of behaviors to help deal with the highs or lows. If you look outside of yourself for validation or a sense of self, or the ways that you've learned how to deal with life are no longer working. It is possible to connect with yourself, experience your emotions in a healthy way, and feel intimate or balanced. Feeling more secure in yourself and the events of the past is achievable.

Understanding through listening and then moving toward action create an ideal environment for change. I bring a positive and challenging approach to therapy. One of my strengths is aiding clients in identifying alternative perspectives and ways of behaving. Fundamentally, I believe our fears are often barriers to experiencing the growth and construtive relationships we all desire to have. Once we learn to face what we have been avoiding, alternatives generally present themselves allowing change to occur.

As a person in long term recovery from various substance and process addictions, I've been helped along the way by some very special humans who have lit the way for me to peer into the areas of my path that I was either denying or just couldn't see from an objective perspective (yet). After a career as a marketing professional, I was able to make the transition into providing this work that has helped me come to terms with life and my place in it; work that feeds my soul and shines the light on those dark places so many of us are afraid to venture into alone. Together, we can explore and make meaning of what's happened to you.

I SEE YOU. I see you hustling to get more done—to be the perfect parent/spouse/employee/leader/human. I see that under your polished exterior, you are exhausted, stressed out, and ready for a change. I see you feel unappreciated, but left frustrated and guilty that you feel this way. I HEAR YOU. I hear your inner thoughts (the ones you only admit to your therapist): “I’m working myself ragged, and I’m still not enough.” “If I could just _____ then I will be happy.” “Why does it come easier for _____?" "Someday, when _____ then I'll work on me." But I also hear the quiet whisper that says, “despite it all, I’m still trying.”

Sexual Addiction Therapists
Sexual addictions usually are revealed in stages: Preoccupation: continual fantasies about sexual prospects or situations, which can trigger episodes of sexual "acting-out": Ritualization: a preferred sexual activity or situation is often stereotyped and repetitive; Sexual Compulsion: continual engagement in sexual activity despite negative consequences and desire to stop; Despair: guilt or shame over inability to control behaviour or feel remorse; and, Other behavioural problems, particularly chemical dependency and eating disorders.

Sex addiction or love addiction in marriage is common and inevitably leads to betrayal and hurt. Overcoming and recovery from sexual addiction starts with recognizing that you are out of control.
