...Not just another therapist, but a Clinical Psychologist that is also a Certified Addiction Specialist. 'Substance abuse treatment..." the subject of my doctoral dissertation, is the mantra of my personal journey and commitment to help others find the path to a better life. I integrate state of the art brain science with psychotherapy, refining and building upon that which I have personally mastered. I am committed to compassionate client care, and to meet you exactly where you are... whenever you are ready, because, the truth of the matter is, that most people cannot recover on their own.

Many people experience challenges in their sexual and relationship life and might be feeling alone or ashamed. Maybe you are struggling with intercourse, desire, arousal, pleasure, pain, performance anxiety, or shame around sex. Or maybe you've been disconnected from your partner, feel stuck in your conflict patterns, or are going through transitions or difficulties in your relationship. Everyone deserves a healthy and fulfilling intimate life. No matter your age or relationship stage, you can create a more meaningful and positive connection with yourself and your partner.

Where can I go for help? Who can I talk to? How do I get through this? Won't somebody help me? Yes! I will. There are times in life when we go through something we just don't know how to get through. There are times when we reach a breaking point and acknowledge that doing it alone is just not an option anymore. Making the choice to reach out at that point is a breakthrough that can open the door to the relief you are seeking.

Seeking help requires courage. I have a wide range of experience that includes, but not limited to, working with: depression, anxiety, issues in their primary relationship or family of origin issues, phobias, trauma and infidelity. My approach is client centered, which means I am open to whatever the client brings up in therapy. I believe the "magic" in therapy comes from the client's ability to share his/her issues openly; the creation of a trusting bond between counselor and client is a key component to the success of therapy. I tailor the work I do to each client's style and needs.

Is your relationship suffering due to addiction, infidelity or lack of communication? I work with individuals and couples who have tried to 'make things work' but find that the trust, the pain, and the sadness is too overwhelming to do it on their own. My role is helping you navigate a way out of the emotional maze that can feel lonely and hopeless. Feeling stuck leads to depression and anxiety that affects the quality of your life and your active participation in your happiness. This is the point when you socialize less, watch Netflix more, and find life and relationships mundane.

Change is an inevitable part of life. The lack of change or too much change can overwhelm us and derail our growth. No one escapes hardship and stress. During these times we need the trust, respect, and empathy of an impartial professional especially when family and friends are just too close to the matter. With more than 20 years of clinical practice, I've found that the healthier person reaches out for help beyond their immediate sphere. I see myself as a guide facilitating my patients' healthy risk taking and helping them manifest their visions for a better future.

He/she is eager to know him or herself better, to embrace the journey of self-awareness, thus leading to more freedom and grace, versus control, in interpersonal relationships. Most of all, my client wants to be truer to his or her genuine self: a better version of his/her genuine self, not a changed version. This will involve more acceptance and love of self and others.
