How do I know if my sexual behavior is out of control? For many men this question is very subjective and they unfortunately wait for a spouse, loved one or their employer to discover their hidden sexual life before considering help. At The Harvey Institute we believe the most important person to evaluate his personal conflict with regulating sexual behavior is the man experiencing the dilemma. We help men contemplate "What is your conflict with your sexual behavior?" and "What is your vision for your sexual health?" We strive to provide a safe, sexually informed and confidential space for sexual health conversations.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who focuses on underlying relationship issues to help my clients experience a deeper sense of connection. If you have struggled with issues of trust, infidelity, constant fighting, family issues, low self-esteem, or feelings of disconnection, my style of therapy can help you discuss the themes that fuel the arguments and stand in-between connection. In a typical session, we can "map out" negative communication patterns and implement tools for some immediate relief so that you don't need to be in therapy long term.

People come to therapy for a number of different reasons. Maybe you are feeling stuck in old relationship patterns. Maybe there are triggers, anxiety, or difficult emotions that keep you from connecting to what's important. These are heavy things to carry alone. I help clients heal trauma and PTSD, learn how to manage anxiety and depression, and work toward their goals in life. Healing these symptoms allows people to feel a greater sense of peace, experience better relationship satisfaction, and move toward what they value most.

Anxiety is a major obstacle that can get in our way of living the life we want. While a certain amount of anxiety is normal for all persons, those with excessive anxiety may find themselves experiencing constant worry, doubt, and self criticism. Depression, substance abuse and relationship problems often follow. However, these problems are manageable. But first you will need to understand your beliefs, your motivations, and behavior. I will work together with you to help you feel safe by learning the evidence-based therapies that you will need to develop insight into your situation.

I work with individuals, adolescents, couples and families who desire to live a better life and have connection in their relationships. Did you know that "pain is inevitable, suffering is optional" (. I didn't. Everyone experiences suffering. Learning how NOT to suffer is life changing. We'll explore the beliefs and meanings that were created during your socialization. You'll learn simple tools and gain awareness about how the process of suffering happens for you and how to NOT suffer. It requires willingness, vulnerability and a commitment to not give up. You also have the option to experience EMDR, a powerful modality when stuck.
