I have extensive experience working with sexual assault and sexual abuse survivors.
Healing from trauma and grief is not just about surviving the experience, it is also about learning to LIVE again. I enjoy being part of this process and empowering people to grow, change, heal, and thrive! I am passionate about my work and I love helping people reconnect with themselves. I believe it is important to get to the root of the problem, not just manage symptoms. One of the gifts I bring to you is listening deeply and helping you feel understood as we collaborate on implementing practical solutions.

If you or your partner struggle with addiction to pornography, love/sex, or alcohol/drugs then you need a therapist specifically trained to help. Signs of addiction and compulsivity include: being preoccupied with thoughts related to drug of choice (sex, porn, alcohol, drugs), hiding your behavior from others, hurting others emotionally because of your behavior, feeling controlled by the desire to use, or feeling depressed afterwards participating in your drug of choice (porn, sex, alcohol/drugs). A positive response to just one would indicate a need for additional assessment. Three or more indicates likely addiction present.
