Footprints was started by a therapist who realized that often times the services provided to low socio-economic communities is lacking quality care. We noticed these communities where confronted with long wait times, disrespectful admins, and subpar treatment. The one and only purpose was to exploit the community for profit without providing the level of care deserved. Feel Better Therapy began from the inspiration to provide quality mental health care to the poorest of communities and treating the clients of this community the same way a rich patient would be treated in a clinic treating affluent clients.

My belief is that human healthcare is very interconnected in nature. I believe in treating the whole person, taking into account the multifaceted mental, physical, and social factors, rather than treating presenting symptoms at face value. Rooted in self-compassion work, I help identify self-critical narratives in self-dialogue to help clients unblock stuck points and begin to reach their full potential. By working together, we can spark authentic positive changes that can be implemented right away.

As an eclectic, creative therapist, I believe in doing what works. I use EMDR, an evidence based treatment, to heal trauma and correct negative core beliefs that drive your problems. I provide a safe environment for painful emotions where you can heal and discover your true authentic self. Break free and resolve destructive relationship patterns and discover true and healthy intimacy. End compulsive and addictive behaviors, instead of using a substance, a process, or a relationship for instant gratification and to escape intolerable realities. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, I treat sexual addiction , infidelity and intimacy anorexia.

I believe that psychotherapy lays the emotional groundwork that leads to a more satisfying and engaged life. Many people mistakenly think of psychotherapy as one-sided: the person in therapy talks and the therapist listens. But effective psychotherapy - therapy that heals - works because of the unique relationship that develops between the therapist and the person in therapy. I provide an environment - safe and non-judgemental - that facilitates opening up in new and often unexpected ways and helps you experience and express deepest thoughts and feelings. I have particular experience working with gay men, HIV issues, substance abuse and sexual addiction .

Sexual Addiction Therapists

When should someone seek treatment for sex addiction?

People should seek treatment for sex addiction if they cannot control their sexual thoughts or behaviours to the point that it disrupts their ability to function in daily life, for example by threatening their finances, career, or relationships. This may include spending an excessive amount of time obsessing over sex, planning sex, watching pornography, or masturbating, as well as consistently engaging in risky sexual activities, using sex to escape distressing feelings, or attempting yet failing to control sexual behavior.

What are the most common treatment options for sex addiction?

Psychotherapy is the most common treatment for sex addiction; therapy helps patients better understand their compulsive thoughts and behaviors and develop strategies to manage their desires. Therapy may be supplemented by medications, such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anti-androgens, and the alcohol and substance use medication Naltrexone, as well as support groups, such as 12-step programs.

How long does therapy take for sex addiction?

Recovering from compulsive behavior takes time and effort. There’s no precise timeline for treatment, but research suggests 12 therapy sessions may be enough to see change. Treatment for sexual compulsions requires honesty in therapy, a commitment to understanding triggers and developing coping skills, and potential lifestyle changes such as cutting out alcohol or drugs.

What if sex addiction is left untreated?

Compulsive sexual behavior can have serious repercussions if left unaddressed. For example, if sexual obsessions consume the vast majority of a person’s time, they may lose their job. If they can’t stop paying for sex, their finances may suffer. If they’re dishonest in their relationships, their partner may leave them. If they consistently feel shame, they may struggle with anxiety, depression, or loneliness. Therapy can help people develop the tools to manage sexual thoughts and behaviors that feel uncontrollable.
