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.

When a woman discovers her spouse is involved in sexually compulsive behaviors, she often feels as though the floor has fallen out from underneath her. It seems everything she thought she knew about her spouse and her life is suddenly a lie. She feels the deepest sense of betrayal, and wonders if she will ever trust again. Her world is falling apart and there is nothing to hold onto. She feels all alone and often does not tell another living soul about the horror she has been plunged into.

Are you finding yourself caught in self defeating patterns? Are you anxious or depressed and don't know why? Maybe you are hard on yourself in ways you aren't to others. Or, do you find yourself overly critical of others? Do you wish you were happier, more at peace? We all try and want to live at our best, but many of us find ourselves pulled back into old patterns before we recognize our actions. We cope in many different ways or develop symptoms that are often self destructive. Why do we do this?
