My clients are successful, highly-motivated professionals who find that certain areas of life are becoming unmanageable. Addiction, abuse and trauma are viewed as symptoms rather than defining characteristics. I seek an approach to recovery that embraces positive, proactive, sustainable change. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT®) specializing in sex/porn addictions, partners of sex addicts, multiple addictions, trauma, abuse, and PTSD. I have training from the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP).

We have premier training and cutting-edge educational resources to treat people with addictive and compulsive sexual behaviors and multiple addictions. CSAT® (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) program is one of the most highly regarded programs of its kind.

As a Sexual Addiction Therapist, I believe my focus is on helping men and women develop the ability to have secure attachments in their relationships. It’s my belief that Sex/Porn addictions are at their core stem from emotional trauma over the lifespan.
