With over 20 years of experience providing mental health services, primarily to men, individuals and couples, who are struggling with relationship issues, sexual health, and/or substance use issues, my focus is on helping you feel better. If you are struggling to feel connected with your partner, or others in your life, therapy can help. As a relationship specialist, I work with you, to help understand and improve communication, heal past ruptures, and increase intimacy - emotional and sexual. We may also work together to decrease your sexual performance anxiety, increase confidence, and pleasure.
I also work with men struggling with Out of Control Sexual Behavior, and/or substance use. You and I work together to identify what you feel is problematic about your behaviors and then work together to reach your goals.
I offer clinical consultation to other clinicians, and am Certified as a Maryland Social Work Supervisor. I am also a Certified Group Psychotherapist (by American Group Psychotherapy Association). Please visit my website for more details.
