I've served as director of a Seattle sexual addiction recovery agency, hosted a syndicated radio show on recovery and relationships, and am the author of Men's Secret Wars and The Boundaries Book.
I believe that almost all change that occurs in therapy comes from forming a safe therapeutic relationship, and in the context of that relationship increasing your awareness of self, challenging your old beliefs, establishing appropriate boundaries in relationships with others, and experiencing and letting go of old pain. My task is to support you in that process. I tend to be active in therapy. I ask questions, offer observations, and look for patterns in the client's life. However, I believe the client is the final expert on themselves, and I trust in their unique healing process.

My specialty is around areas of sexual abuse/trauma, sexual addiction , and cultural issues.
I am a Christian therapist trained in the interpersonal/relational psychoanalytic theory. I've also engaged both object relational and cognitive behavioral theories through varied clinical experiences. I've mostly trained under Dan Allender. I am trained well to serve clients that desire to face issues of sexual abuse/trauma, narrative, and relational dynamics within relationships. I'm also able to help clients think through potential cultural issues that can also have impact on ones dealing with issues of abuse, story, and relationship.

I comprehensively treat individuals and couples with sexual/relationship issues. I address communication/intimacy problems and all sexual concerns, including inhibited or low sexual desire, male erection and female arousal problems, premature ejaculation, painful intercourse, vaginismus, lack of orgasm, sexual and emotional skills, sexual "addiction," and sexual trauma. I also fine-tune sex lives. I am a cognitive (CBT) therapist. AASECT and five other national boards certify me as a sex therapist and a sexologist. I help clients get rid of distorted and negative thinking, which has a positive effect on emotions, behaviors and relationships. I assign homework/home-play!

I also work with individuals who struggle with relationship issues due to anger, domestic violence, or sexual addiction .
I work with those who struggle with anger. Often times the anger is brought on by unmet expectations and merely a symptom of deeper issues under the surface. It's my job to metaphorically stand in a place you can not see, and point you in the right direction as to the cause of what is contributing to the anger. By doing so, you can receive insight that will enrich your life and change it for the better.

I provide individual and couples counseling with mindful and compassionate approach around subjects such as relationships, depression and anxiety, grief and loss, sexual addiction and trauma, self-esteem and conflict resolution to name a few.
Seeking therapy can feel scary, but I believe it is a courageous and empowering step. I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy and that therapy can be a means for personal growth. I have a family systems approach to my counseling, that is, I see how our upbringing shaped and molded us into who we are today. I believe that some of the difficulties we have with others is rooted in the learned relationships we have with our family members.

She is a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist, Certified Attachment-Focused EMDR therapist & Certified Partner Trauma Therapist.
Your heart is hurting, you have tried so hard to make your relationships work. Your partner refuses to meet your needs after you have tried so hard to share. You wonder if it's you, am I too needy?, am I too much? Second-guessing yourself brings more heartache. You want to know how to fix whatever is wrong but don't know what it is. You want to find peace and your efforts come up short. I can join with you to provide support and encouragement as you find the lost parts of yourself. Betrayal trauma can be healed with AF-EMDR which helps to knit your story together in a safe and healing way.

You don’t know who you are or what you want anymore. Growing up in a religiously conservative setting that no longer fits your values, this has been a long time coming. You miss the connection and community, the mystical experiences, but evangelicalism is no longer your home. Your spiritual formation and experiences with God have become a source of confusion and disillusionment. You find yourself in a perpetual state of exile and grief. Why can’t you trust yourself? It was easier when your faith was more clearly defined (or seemed to be). Now, self-doubt, shame, and nagging insecurity are a constant hum in the background.

Is out-of-control sexual behavior hurting you or someone you care about? Pornography, prostitution, infidelity and other secretive sexual activity can contribute to physical, legal and relationship problems, and destroy families and careers. I work with adults in the greater Seattle area who want to stop acting out sexually and restore their sense of integrity and wholeness. I also help families and partners heal and move forward. My compassionate, non-judgmental approach works by addressing not only the problematic sexual behaviors but also the personal and relationship issues that are intertwined with them.

There exists in all of us a wound or hurt that we have learned to either live with, or maybe disguise-a protective and gracious attempt at avoiding pain. Therapy is a unique setting to safely explore not only past wounds, but how they impact your present life and relationships. In this way, we can learn to have compassion for the parts of us that have not felt cared for and move towards healing and new ways of relating to self and others.

I will be accepting new clients starting February 28th, 2022. Throughout my work, I have learned that many people feel confused, lost, alone and ashamed when it comes to sex. In particular, many people I work with feel conflicted about their porn and masturbation habits, paying for sex, or their ability to keep agreements with partners. As a certified sex therapist, I offer a non-judgmental space to help you identify which behaviors are no longer serving you, as well as to cultivate the kind of relationship you want to have with your sexuality.
