About

How do you know if your sexual behavior is out of control? It's a subjective question that many men unfortunately wait until relationship, occupational or medical consequences accumulate before considering. I believe the most important person to evaluate concerns with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. I start with two basic questions: "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" Since 2001, I have provided a safe, informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations with heterosexual, gay and bisexual men.
As a sexual health psychotherapist, I treat what is commonly labeled as "sexual addiction" or "compulsive sexual behavior" as a problem of competing motivations - men wanting to both stop and continue their sexual behavior despite harmful consequences.
In addition to providing therapy for men concerned about their sexual health, I conduct individual and couple therapy for a variety presenting problems related to sexuality, mental health, substance use and wellness. Please visit my website for more information about my practice.
