My goal as a therapist is to help you learn skills for leading a more fulfilling and functional reality and to help you on your way to living your best life. I use an empathetic and individualized approach to help people of all backgrounds navigate life issues and stressors and make positive and meaningful changes. I work with individuals, couples, and adolescents on relationships, intimacy, parenting, life transitions, self-esteem, childhood traumas, traumatic events, and anxiety. If you need help realizing your full potential, I'll help you identify your obstacles and how to navigate them.
If you are struggling with sex addiction, I will help you face the darkness of leading a double life, achieve sobriety, and heal the underlying issues. If you are a partner of a sex addict, I will support you in working through the trauma of betrayal and will work with both of you as a couple to face this difficult challenge.
After many years as a pastoral counselor, I came to understand that the best way to help others heal was first to do the work myself by entering into therapy. After over 20 years of doing that work, I became a therapist to help people like you face your traumas and limiting beliefs. I know what it means to live in darkness; let me help you find your light.
