Announcement icon During COVID-19 I am offering clients phone and video sessions. Please call me for further information. Be well and stay safe.
Are you feeling anxious or depressed because of compulsive or addictive behaviors? Have you tried changing your behavior yourself but can't? I am a licensed clinical social worker who is certified in treating individuals, couples and families who are struggling with anxiety, depression, pornography and sex addiction and trauma using research-based proven methods. I can help you change unwanted thoughts and behaviors that are taking over your life. I was the Director of Counseling Services at a Family Service Agency, where I developed a Domestic Violence Intervention and Prevention program. In addition I developed an Opiate Addiction Prevention Education program.
People can change their behavior when they are educated about how their thoughts,feelings and behaviors are connected. I am also trained in Traumatic Incident Reduction Protocol (TIR), a method of effectively reducing traumatic stress from emotionally and/or physically painful events or lingering feelings of guilt, shame, loneliness in a small number of sessions.
In addition I provide general couples therapy. Couples argue about money, sex, parenting and issues of power and control; but the real issue is feeling disconnected and not seen by your partner. I will work with you to reconnect with your partner emotionally. Relationship satisfaction depends on feeling seen, heard, and understood.
