Through various methods (including EMDR & Internal Family systems) we also help clients heal from trauma and other emotional wounds.
The focus of my work is helping men and women who are struggling with intimacy disorders and compulsive sexual/relationship behaviors (also known as sex, porn or love addiction) that have had negative impacts on a person's relationships, overall emotional well being, health, family, career and other aspects of life. Struggles with sexuality can involve a great deal of pain, guilt and shame. If this is your experience, finding a professional who can provide a safe and non-judgemental space is crucial. In addition, I work with individuals who experience difficulties creating and maintaining intimate connections in relationships.

I practice a modality called Internal Family Systems.
Our practice focuses on sexual addiction - for the addict, the partner and the couple. If you struggle with sex addiction (including pornography) you need someone who understands this addiction and has a plan for your recovery. We do. If you are the partner of a sex addict, it's important to take care of yourself and seek counsel from a compassionate therapist who understands your situation. Both the addict and the betrayed partner get better faster with a highly trained, highly focused supportive therapy team. Men and women have regained and even improved relationships through their work with us.

I work with adults and teens age 14+ on problems ranging from getting over a breakup to overcoming a lifetime of trauma. I use humor and compassion alongside technique and knowledge to help clients calm their thoughts, develop meaningful connections with others, and resolve even long-standing problems. I use concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and psychodynamic techniques to identify and challenge damaging thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors, ultimately helping clients create a story of themselves that is authentic and empowering.

How many times have you said “I can’t do this anymore”? Depression is a thief of hope. You want life to be different, brighter, better, but nothing seems to be working. You slip into old habits over and over and you’re no longer sure if things can really change. You’ve considered giving up, but you don’t even know what that looks like and you still want to know you really tried. You wonder if therapy will work. You wonder if anything will work because you’ve already tried so hard. How can anything be different when everything is out of your control? Don’t give up.

I believe identity is a critical part of self-understanding and healing. For this reason, I enjoy working with folks who are looking to explore their identities which might include sexuality, gender, race, religion, physical and mental ability, and roles in society. I am cognizant that our identities shape our personal and lived experiences in the world, and this continually impacts how and what we need to heal. I approach therapy from a non-religious standpoint, but have a deep interest in how religion impacts people, including ways that it can act as a source of trauma, while also acknowledging that it can be a source of support.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.

Most of us didn't grow up in a home where our emotions were nurtured and honored. Additionally, most of us have had experiences that were too much, too fast and/or too soon for our bodies - trauma. Because of this, we often find ourselves in adulthood practicing what we learned in childhood: all the ways we can avoid our body and emotions! This avoidance is what leads to common issues such as anxiety and depression etc. We are afraid to dive into this emotional realm because we have been taught to be afraid! If you are reading this, I'm assuming you have experienced this fear and do not know what to do about it.
