During the human experience, we will have struggles along the way. There are times we don't understand our own actions. We decide to take one approach to solve our problems and find ourselves doing something opposite of what we intended on doing. It is in those moments that we ask ourselves "How did I get here?" As a counselor for over 10 years, I partner with people to find their answers and to unlock their solutions. I have a solution focus approach that assist clients in reestablishing balance, developing coping skills and educating them on techniques and strategies to improve their own capabilities.

I believe change is possible for all of us, and I have seen that change develop in many clients over the course of a collaborative treatment. I believe that, working together, we can develop a rich and fulfilling understanding of each client’s personality. I have training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, and I use that frame to provide an environment that promotes healing, awareness, and growth. I have also used components of cognitive behavioral and dialectic behavioral services in outpatient group therapy, and I blend these tools with the psychodynamic frame to provide an individualized approach.

Therapy provides a safe place to increase understanding, to learn how to make positive changes, to resolve problems, to heal from painful situations, or to simply feel better. I believe these things occur best when an individual is in a non-judgemental environment where they are treated with dignity and respect. I strive to provide just that to my clients. I want people to feel relaxed and supported when working with me. Life, with all its challenges, is difficult enough. The therapeutic process should be as easy as possible.

Healthy sexuality is our objective in sexual addiction. Sex is an integral and balanced part of life experience. Sexual behaviors become problematic when they violate vows and values, are dishonest, harmful to others, put you at risk, diminishes your joy in life, act as a barrier filled with shame, self-contempt, and isolation. Sexual health creates intimacy and closeness, characterized by trust, respect, joy and safety. Sexual health can be achieved by sex addicts in recovery. The trauma and addiction model identifies the trauma and internal system that underwrites addiction and does not view problematic behavior as moral failure.

Whether it be due to recent infidelity, a long history of sexual, physical and emotional betrayal, sexual identity confusion, or present day repercussions of childhood abuse and trauma, I consider it a privilege to walk with clients into the darkness of their stories. I enjoy coming alongside and advocating for those who are tired of just coping, dissatisfied with their quality of life, and desperate for deep change and healing.

Through connecting in a meaningful way to me as your therapist, we will walk a path toward making and taking full advantage of meaningful connections in your life. I work primarily with survivors of trauma who struggle to figure out why things seem more difficult for them than for those around them.
