Sex & porn addiction (CSAT), affair recovery, sexuality issues, internet addiction, and substance addiction are my specialties. I also work with trauma/PTSD (EMDR), depression and anxiety. Not just endless talk, talk, talk that goes nowhere. I use multiple evidence-based mental health treatments combined with genuine compassion and care so that my clients feel better sooner. If they're open to it, I often give my clients specific handouts or homework to do during the week. I don't believe in forcing the client to do something that isn't working. I begin where you are.

Hurt, frustrated or feeling hopeless in your marriage? Tired of going in circles, feeling shutdown or walking on eggshells? There's good reason to hope and work on things. You see, this is when couples usually come to see me- in the midst of the birth of their new relationship. And this is when many couples break up or break vows or think about these kinds of things. Love isn't supposed to be this hard or painful. Well, it is my honor and mission to guide couples through this harrowing passage.

I work with individuals who feel their lives are hindered by unwanted or distressing feelings, or self-defeating patterns of behavior, and who experience depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, compulsive or impulsive behaviors, or relationship difficulties. By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

I am a psychologist with 40 years experience in group, individual and couples therapy. Those who see me are "normal" women and men with relationship issues that get in the way of having richer, more fulfilling lives. These issues may interfere with finding and maintaining an intimate, supportive and vibrant relationship. They may also interfere with self-confidence, parenting and career success. Compared to most therapists, I am very active, involved and personal in therapy. I do not just sit back and listen and I do not just give advice. I go beyond listening to confront and motivate patients to change.

As a clinical psychologist trained in intensive psychotherapy and counseling, I focus primarily on you as a person, not on your disorder or illness. Even if the reason you seek treatment is depression, anxiety, relationship issues or addictive behaviors, that is not who you are- it is only the form that your problems take. In our therapy work together we will need to understand who you are fundamentally - your unique strengths, issues, and needs. Our shared understanding of your complexities will then tell us precisely what approach to take to healing your problems.

Internet Addiction Therapists
Internet addiction (or sometimes formally referred to as internet addiction disorder or "IAD") applies to internet overuse, problematic computer use, or excessive computer use that interferes with ones day to day life. Whether overuse of the internet can be classed as an "addiction" is disputed. But online activities such as compulsive gambling or shopping (sometimes called net compulsions) or reading or playing computer games, can be troubling when they interfere with life's regular activities-even in Washington-such as work, sleep or study.

Internet addictive behaviors in Washington might include excessive, overwhelming, or inappropriate pornography use, gaming, online social networking, blogging, email, or internet shopping. Although not all compulsive behaviors may themselves be addictive.Check here for an internet addiction Therapist in Washington, Washington internet addiction Therapists or internet addiction counseling
