Healthy sexuality is our objective in sexual addiction. Sex is an integral and balanced part of life experience. Sexual behaviors become problematic when they violate vows and values, are dishonest, harmful to others, put you at risk, diminishes your joy in life, act as a barrier filled with shame, self-contempt, and isolation. Sexual health creates intimacy and closeness, characterized by trust, respect, joy and safety. Sexual health can be achieved by sex addicts in recovery. The trauma and addiction model identifies the trauma and internal system that underwrites addiction and does not view problematic behavior as moral failure.

I provide inclusive, secular-based therapy. I recognized a need in my community to emphasize the absence of religion in my practice, when I, myself, was searching for a counselor. I struggled with the sometimes obvious, and sometimes subtle implementation of prayer, and religion in my sessions. It felt dismissive, and invalidating. When a client comes to session with an open mind and willingness to explore their thoughts and expressions with me, in sometimes unconventional ways, amazing insights come into focus. With that, confidence in their ability to recognize their needs and meet their goals, become their reality.

I have observed the therapeutic effects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) on depression and have developed an extensive repertoire of behavioral tactics for its treatment. The worst thing about depression is that it makes us feel as if there is no hope for ever getting out of it. In fact, it's a very treatable disorder. CBT uses logic, reasoning, and goal setting to dig ourselves out of depression. I supplement CBT with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a state of the art non-talk therapy. EMDR intensifies and multiplies our positive nerves and decreases pessimistic obsessive thoughts.

Hi! I'm Maribeth, and I'm glad you've found me! It's so important to feel a sense of connection with a therapist. My philosophy is simple - I believe that we are all born as divine lights of the universe, but that through the course of our lives, we are given messages through the words or acts of others, or sometimes even ourselves, that impact how we see ourselves and the world. My style of therapy focuses on helping people change those messages to reflect the true nature of each of us - one of wholeness. Therapy, to me, is the act of holding space for someone as they journey towards their awakening.

My ideal client is one who is aware that they need to do something different but aren't quite sure what the next step is. This could be a life transition from adolescence to adulthood, or a couple who struggles with communication. It could be more intense like a couple who is in the middle of despair or broken trust, or an individual or child who has experienced something traumatic that has changed their whole world. All these individuals are looking for ways to regain their life and become who they believe themselves to be.

As many differences as we all have, we all have things in common - we all have pain, and we're all made both to be healed and to heal each other. I hope to teach others to prioritize their own wellbeing because I have found when I prioritize myself that is how I help heal others. So many of us have been taught that selflessness means prioritizing everyone else first. Selflessness really means losing track of self-consciousness and ego as we pursue joy, spirituality and depth. To be selfless is freedom from guilt, shame, and self judgement.

While I see clients who are struggling with a variety of issues (depression; anxiety; relationship difficulties; and questions of meaning, purpose, and self), I specialize in working with those who have experienced religious trauma - those who have been deeply hurt by the messages they received as part of their religious experience and have not felt the freedom to tell their story. Clergy and laity alike need space to express and reflect upon their hurt, their sadness, their anger, their disappointment, and their doubts.

Everything feels hard. Like too much. You’re exhausted, anxious, and emotionally running on empty though you expect yourself to have it all together. As a responsible, empathic, and considerate person, you put major effort into all your roles--work, relationships, etc. But you re-hash conversations and second guess yourself, afraid to make a mistake. Did you get it right and meet the expectations? What if you get it wrong and push someone away? What the hell is “getting it right” anyway? You don't want to disappoint anyone, but the traditions and tools you learned no longer work for you or feel like they’re holding you back.

Each client is treated with respect and supported to gain greater self-understanding and self-awareness. The client is at the center of therapy and determines the direction of therapy.
