Someone once said, "The decision to ask for help is not easy and requires courage." Sometimes it is both challenging and absolutely terrifying to invite a perfect stranger into one's space that doesn't appear to be as "put together" as we would like, especially when what has one "falling apart" is substance use. I am of the belief that with a focused mind, determined spirit, and faith, there is no trip DOWN you can't fall UP from.

You’ve always managed to maintain control but life just became overwhelming and your usual coping techniques aren’t working. Not knowing what else to do, you find yourself doing more of the same. When working long hours does nothing to soothe your fear that you are an imposter, you work more. When one glass of wine fails to take the edge off your work stress, your pour yourself another. Now, others are starting to notice you don't have your act perfectly together and your frustration with yourself has built itself into a litany of self-criticism.

I work with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have all come to a shared realization: that their way of living is no longer working for them. Whether they are struggling with addiction or depression or find themselves experiencing relationship difficulties, they all aspire to something new; something more. Together we identify the nature of their particular dissatisfaction, discover how they got there, and develop a more desirable and sustainable reality. I believe that my role is to be a nonjudgmental companion to my clients on their unique journey of self-discovery and profound change.

How do you know if your sexual behavior is out of control? It's a subjective question that many men unfortunately wait until relationship, occupational or medical consequences accumulate before considering. I believe the most important person to evaluate concerns with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. I start with two basic questions: "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" Since 2001, I have provided a safe, informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations with heterosexual, gay and bisexual men.
