I began my counseling practice specializing in working with couples in crisis over the discovery of a previously hidden sexual addiction or chronic infidelity.
You seem to be good at everything *except* your relationship. You know something is off in your relationship, but maybe you just can't quite put your finger on it. Or you know exactly what the problem is, but you're clueless on how to change it. You don't want to give up, walk away, throw in the towel. You want to fight for your marriage. Perhaps there's be infidelity, perhaps many times over. Maybe your partner hid major issues or events, like debts or friendships, and now you can't heal from the betrayal and trust your partner again. Or perhaps you are the one holding the secret, and the shame is keeping you imprisoned in fear.

I have been treating those affected by sexual addiction since 2010.
The discovery of sexual betrayal in your marriage can leave you shocked and traumatized. I provide treatment to partners of sex addicts, sex and love addicts, and couples whose relationship has been rattled with infidelity, sexual or pornography compulsivity. Most of those living with the sexual betrayal of their significant other feel helpless and hopeless. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and wife of a recovering sex addict myself, I can help you find the healing you need, while guiding you through validating your trauma, setting healthy boundaries, and learning how to make decisions moving forward.

Much of my counseling work is with couples, especially those with spouses in sexual addiction recovery.
If you are seeking a counselor for the first time or considering counseling for personal growth, you are probably looking for a counselor who is safe, knowledgeable and, compassionate. Many clients contact me during a personal crisis (infidelity, sexual addiction issues, or relationship conflicts) while others are looking for an objective person to navigate life issues. I work with both men and women and couples seeking relational help. My approach to therapy is from a Biblical perspective. Wherever you may be on your spiritual path, my goal is to support clients as they move toward spiritual wholeness and maturity.

I largely work with those dealing with depression, anxiety, and sexual addiction , although I find it exciting to work with many different issues including problems with self-esteem, marital concerns, parenting difficulties, and chemical dependency.
Sometimes in life, we get frustrated, overwhelmed, confused, hurt, or just plan tired of struggling. It’s at times like these that we’re most vulnerable. And, in order to make it through the fight, we need a listening ear, guidance, and, sometimes, a push in the right direction, so we can become the best version of ourselves. Most of the time, that takes a lot of work and time. It is my privilege to assist in this process of life change. I enjoy meeting people where they are and, together, working on their unique and personal goals.

I feel that Individuals seek therapy because they need additional support in their lives. Children and adolescents also experience challenges at home and at school that may surface as behavioral or anger issues. Adjusting to this new "normal" has been difficult, to say the least, in many ways. As a clinician, I provide a safe and judgement-free place to express what is making you feel unhappy or stuck. I believe offering you a fresh, unbiased space to do so fosters growth and change.

I know what it feels like to be stuck, repeating the same behaviors over and over again. I know how it feels to say with all your heart, "I'll never do that again" - and mean it sincerely; but find yourself repeating that behavior again. I know how it feels to be in despair and hopelessness. I know how deep shame can run and how much it can control your life. I know what fear feels like and why it is embarrassing to admit that you need help.
