I specialize in the treatment individuals and couples dealing with sexual addiction (Problematic Sexual Behavior - PSB) and have for 20 years, treating hundreds of addicts and their partners. I am certified in treating sex addiction (S-PSB). PSBs reflect underlying problems in relationships, emotional attachment, affect management, and impulse control. Treatment engages the whole person, not merely suppression of problem behaviors. Therapy requires compassion, acceptance, and respect. I combine knowledge and wisdom with understanding, creativity, and humor in a down-to-earth, practical approach.

I work with many " sexual addiction " clients.
I believe in client feedback for setting goals and evaluating whether therapy is working for them. It's not my goals or "success rate" that is important but what the client experiences. I value working with clients who know what a 'better life' will look like, will work on getting there, and will provide feedback about progress or resistence. Of course I'm there to provide help when stuck but I value clients to provide their feedback and be engaged in the therapeutic process.

My passion for over 30 years has been to help people explore, identify and deal with problematic or out of control behaviors and the effects in their lives and in the lives of loved ones. I have always believed that these excessive behaviors have served as one way for people to regulate their moods, their neurochemistry, and to cope with anxiety and fears. In other words, to change the way they feel. I enjoy helping people learn to manage stress and anxiety in new ways. I also love helping people improve their relationship with themselves and others and to develop a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.

After battling addiction for many years, I discovered a new way to live through psychotherapy, the 12-steps, physical fitness, & spiritual practice. Ramtha said, "Your greatest accomplishment in life will be living through it." Today, living is my way of life. Today, I can look at myself in the mirror without shame, guilt, sadness, & self-hatred. I can appreciate my past & not run from it. I can form meaningful loving relationships with others because I have first learned how to love myself. I have learned how to overcome obstacles and cope with worry, anxiety, & depression. I have learned to enjoy every moment, good or bad...

Shame sucks, suffocates, stunts our growth, and kills our creativity. It makes us hide and deny who we are. It keeps us in the shadows hidden by loneliness and isolation. The truth is that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. "Ubuntu" is a Bantu (South African) word that means "I am because we are," or "In being known by you - I know myself." I want to create a safe space where you can explore, know, and understand your whole self, even the parts that you're sometimes afraid to look at. I want to help you remove shame, fear, loneliness, and guilt so that you can manifest your authentic self.

You're struggling with parts of your life right now and aren't sure what to do. Perhaps it's your relationships that are struggling; you may be in the middle of a life change or transition; you may be grieving. There may be other factors in your life which are creating problems. Perhaps you're struggling with addictive behavior; your past is affecting your present; a trauma may be clouding your life. You feel like you don't matter, that you aren't worthy of love. Nobody is listening and you can't figure out how to be heard.

We’ve all had sexual encounters we regret. It’s normal. However, what if you engage in sexual behaviors time after time despite the fact you don’t want to anymore? What if hating yourself for it or hurting someone you love by doing it isn’t convincing enough to refrain? I help those whose love and sex experiences are driven by compulsion and preoccupation rather than spontaneity and freedom. Many might identify as addicts or describe their behavior as out of control. Others call it problematic, while some may not really know what it is. In any case, sex, porn, or intimacy has become an overpowering force in your daily life.

The sexual part of your life is not where you want it to be and you are desperate for change. You and your partner are worried that something might be wrong with you or your relationship. You don’t know where to go for help. This sexual issue is keeping you from being happy and you and/or your partner are depressed and anxious all the time. You think about this all the time. You feel like you don’t know enough about sex and you certainly don’t know how to solve this problem, even though you have tried. No one taught you how to have a healthy and positive sexual identity, so how are you supposed to know how to fix this?
