My specialty is working with people who have issues arising from sexual behavior problems, including sexually abusive behavior, sexual addiction, pornography addiction and Internet addiction. While sex can be a pleasurable part of life, its misuse can lead to infinite heartache and misery. Sexual behavior problems are multifaceted, and are often rooted in an attempt to cope with painful non-sexual issues such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and broken relationships. I work with individuals who have acted out sexually and also with survivors of sexual abuse and trauma.

I use a 30 task treatment model created by Dr. Patrick Carnes to address these issues in a way that makes lives more positive and functional. Through the skills learned in this model, people gain more fulfilling relationships and increased life satisfaction, as well as better decision making.
