My specialty is working with those struggling with sexual compulsivity, sexual problematic behavior, sexual addiction or have been arrested for sex offenses.
My therapeutic style is grounded in a humanistic approach and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge.

I have specialities in porn and/or sexual addiction , mens' issues, careers in high tech, finance, and law.
It can seem impossible to figure things out, to feel loved, secure, less lonely, frightened or sad. Work, family and social demands can cause stress and/or burn-out. People get caught in cycles of porn/ sexual addiction , video games or online surfing that derails them. I'm seasoned and adept at providing safety to think things through. I see many types of people from widely diverse cultural backgrounds and with different sexual orientations. My approach is engaging, warm and exploratory. I provide help at times of crisis, or when life feels unsatisfying, frozen, boring, numb or sad.

I look forward to meeting with individuals, couples, and families who are interested in personal growth and change. During the different stages of our life, our relationships, and the family life cycle, we can get stuck in certain places. This is often due to how we live out familiar patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving or relating with others. I find fulfillment in helping people move through these stuck points by bringing about clarity on core issues and exploring possible alternatives for change. I'm best suited to treat relationship problems, depression, father wounds, men with sexual addiction , and grief/loss issues.

It's very challenging to admit that YOU or YOUR significant other have a PORN/ SEXUAL addiction . This discomfort stops most people from getting professional help but your courage & determination for a solution brought you HERE. Now, let ME take this weight OFF YOU. My experience in LA's Addiction Centers & current work with 1,500 men in groups & solo sessions constantly indicates PORN as a major catalyst of issues: ED, Anxiety, Depression, Low Motivation, Low Libido, Brain Fog, Social Withdraw & Relational Conflict. It's shocking since Modern PORN has ONLY been around the past 15 yrs so the IMPACT is only NOW being realized.

The most important questions is: "What pain brought you here? What is the hardest issue for you to deal with?" The most important result of the first session is that you walk out feeling that I understand you and will be able to be your ally in working through your issues. In other words we need to like each other and you need to feel that I have the expertise to handle your problems and not judge you.

A lot of us have a hard time asking for help. Fear, shame, or needing to be self-sufficient are feelings that can get in the way of recognizing when we need help--and reaching out and asking for it. My approach to therapy creates a safe place where sensitive, painful or scary feelings can be openly explored without judgment. We form a partnership to figure out what is going on and how to move forward. I'm actively engaged in our work--it's a partnership, after all--to help you overcome problem behaviors and develop better ways of coping.

Welcome to my practice. I have about 15 years of clinical experience and have been featured on NBC/KCAL/HLN as an expert psychologist. I work primarily with men who have hit “rock bottom” and would like help getting up. These men are often in crisis when we first meet. The issues I address are typically related to unhealthy sexual behaviors, infidelity, financial recklessness, gambling, drugs/alcohol, dishonesty/lying, and relational conflicts. My therapy approach is a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, and the 12-Step recovery model. I also share insight from my own painful but redemptive recovery journey.

The heart and soul of my practice involves working with chronic shame, gender and sexuality issues, life transitions, grief, loss, trauma, dissociated self-states, self exploration.

You are not broken. It is human to feel loss, sadness, anger, fear, or unworthiness. Recent advances in neuroscience can help us understand why we feel stuck, sad, stressed, scared or alone. When we begin to understand the implicit/unconscious feelings/beliefs that automatically run inside of us we begin a journey that can lead to more awareness, and therefore to more choice in our lives. The hardest part of this journey is the first step; to make your growth a priority enough to tolerate the discomfort of facing what isn't working.
