Announcement icon My private practice is online throughout California. This provides a safe, confidential, supportive setting for all of my clients.
If you are dealing with sexually compulsive behaviors and are holding secrets from those you love, you are likely feeling fear, shame and confusion on how to begin healing. Taking the first step forward in creating a healthier authentic life takes courage and you don't have to do this alone. As a therapist with extensive experience in sexual addiction and betrayal trauma, I work side-by-side with individuals and couples in crisis helping each person with specific tools and guided support. My services are 100% online, providing confidential therapy in the comfort of your own home.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in California. I am training in Internal Family Systems, an evidence-based model of psychotherapy useful in treating anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, and other mental health conditions. Also, I am certified in sexual addiction treatment.
It takes great courage to reach out for guidance in times of suffering. I am here to help.
