Are you plagued by the inability to stop excessive and compulsive sexual behaviors? Are you not acting like the person you want to be? Are you repeatedly violating your own ethical and moral standards? Are you finally ready to start honestly facing your own or your partner’s behavior. I specialize in helping people regain control, peace, and sanity in their lives.
I've been in practice for over 25 years specializing in Sexual Addiction, with treatment services including group psychotherapy, couples therapy, and intensive individual counseling. Although I specialize in Sexual Addiction, I work with a wide range of emotional issues as well as the deeper issues underlying most emotional problems.
I studied with Patrick Carnes to become a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (C-SAT). I provide group therapy, couples counseling, and individual therapy focused upon overcoming compulsive behavior and sexual preoccupation. Additionally I provide services for partners of sexual addicts.
