If you are struggling with the issue of Sexual Addiction we use proven interventions to help cope with shame and guilt.
The issues in life often leave us feeling alone, isolated, frustrated, and empty. By using mindfulness, I help you learn to cope and live a life that is centered and grounded in healthy choices; which, help mitigate these painful feelings. Make the call. Change your life. This is not an easy process, I agree, however, it is well worth it. Investing in your mental health is the single best choice you can make.

I have trained in EMDR Therapy, Sexual Addiction Therapy, and Energy Medicine.
The process of psychotherapy is a deeply personal, introspective undertaking. Together we will recognize the wounds, trauma, and injustices that have befallen you and begin the process of remedy, integration, and repair. In this emotionally safe harbor you can press up against your edges, your incongruencies, and your discomfort. Your healing will begin with a felt-sense of attunement and an authentic experience of being witnessed, seen, and heard. Your honed insight coupled with my empathic attention, and eventual interpretation and analysis, are all harnessed as agents of change. You can remove your maladaptive coping mechanisms!

Over the years working in a variety of settings with many types of people I have found my niche is working with people who have lasting effects from childhood trauma, addictions and compulsive behaviors, and difficulties in relationships. Clients tell me that my ability to stay consistent, calm, and grounded helps them slow down so they can connect to their body - feel their emotions - and experience themselves more whole and alive. Since 2004 I have worked with people with problematic sexual behavior and their loved ones as a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) using trauma therapies and Pat Carnes Task Centered Approach.

Unhappy with yourself and the way life is unfolding? Relationships not what you want them to be? Anxious? Angry? Increase esteem, improve your relationships and feel better now. We go through our lives with stories that shape who we are and how we see ourselves in the world. These stories and ideas can limit our identities preventing us from expressing our true, evolving natures and realizing our potentials. I collaborate with individuals and couples by providing a safe and introspective environment to examine and bring forward their own stories while exploring new perspectives that support and encourage positivity and confidence.

When boundaries have been violated through infidelity, lies and secrets it can be hard to know if a relationship is salvageable. Whether you have been cheated on or done the cheating: is there hope? Is change possible? Problems with intimacy can take many faces; ultimately, we want to be congruent with ourselves and those we love. I specialize in sexuality and have successfully worked with clients to help them heal from betrayal trauma, erectile struggles, acting out with porn, love addiction, exploration of sexual identity, and compulsive sexual behavior. I provide support and interventions that create healthy coping skills.

Relationships are as important to us as food and water. They can strengthen us, like a vitamin, or weaken us, like the flu. You are only as good in relationships as the relationships you have been in. As your therapist, I can assist you in many ways. I can help you learn more about yourself, increase both self-compassion and compassion for others, and heal past trauma. Together, we can explore how to feel more connected to yourself, your values, and people you care about.

Many of us walk around every day wearing some version of a mask. Some of us do so to protect or take care of others, some of us wear the mask to fit in, and some of us wear it because of shame. My hope is that everyone I work with becomes a little bit more comfortable with the person underneath the mask-- their true authentic self. My practice tends to focus on working with individuals from marginalized communities, including LGBTQ-identified and BIPOC. I truly believe the therapeutic relationship can be a healing one, and be the first step in taking off your mask.
