In working with clients my hope has always been to work with people who are asking for help. Working with people who struggle with mood disorders, relationship struggles, and those who simply want to get to know themselves better. Whether that is addressing self-esteem, purpose, addiction, helping others gain confidence or direction, my goal has always been to give people a better sense of who they are.

Making the decision to seek the support of a therapist is a very personal process and often occurs when one wants to change an aspect of life. I work collaboratively with clients to build a trusting and compassionate therapeutic alliance, interweaving my training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Image Transformation Therapy (ImTT) with my background in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to make the counseling experience educational and empowering.

For more than 40 years I have enjoyed working as a psychologist delivering counseling, consultation and assessment services. I consider it a privilege to be invited into an individual's world at a time of need and work hard to build a trusting alliance with each person. I listen to my clients and engage them around the unique stories they share so we can set goals and a treatment plan that is personally tailored to each individual and/or couple. My approach is a relational one such that I use our therapeutic connection to facilitate change.

A common statement I often hear goes something like this, "I've been working to make changes, but nothing changes". This approach of "working on ourselves by ourselves" is often less than successful, think about it! My personal and professional experience has taught me the value of developing relationships that are open, honest, and objective in nature. We will work to develop that relationship, in the process identifying your hopes and visions. Goals will be developed along with objectives making them feasible. Those changes you desired can and will be realized.

You can't stop doing what you're doing, and it's really about to seriously disrupt your life? Locked in to persistent, compulsive actions that you don't quit, but also don't leave you satisfied? Disturbances of the inner self can interfere with joy and satisfaction in living. Sometimes experiences of frustration, anger, disappointment, sorrow and loss become repetitious, even predictable. It's time to do something.

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.
