Where is it hard for you to be honest with yourself and others? What is the one thing that holds you back? Everyone has that one thing in life that keeps us from being our best self. Sometimes it is a behavior or addiction you know you have not been honest about. Maybe you sabotage anything good that happens in your life. If you need help in working through issues of addiction, shame and guilt, or relationship problems, you need to know you are not alone and that there is hope as impossible as it may seem.
I am experienced in helping indivdiuals and couples address what holds them back in life and have trained with Patrick Carnes Ph.D., a researcher and clinician on the forefront of sexual addiction treatment, and am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT).
No matter the circumstances in life, I believe that it is essential to feel heard and respected as part of the therapeutic process. Integrating relational and counseling skills in his therapeutic practices are an important part of the work that I do.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
Getting to be a part of the process of healing and change is an incredible experience. I am very passionate about joining those I work with in that process.
My Role as a Therapist
As a therapist I believe that it is my role to come alongside you and collaborate with you with care and compassion. Therapy is not just giving the right piece of advice at the right time but about proving care and support. You are the expert of your life and your story. My role it to work with you to address what issues and concerns you may need help with.
What I Usually Need to Know to Help
It is important for me to understand you for who you are. Being able to be open and honest takes a great deal of courage and I have nothing but respect for those ready to take the lead to begin to get help. I've found that much of the healing that those I work with experience happens through engaging in the process of therapy. It can take some time to feel comfortable and safe when meeting with a therapist for the first time. Maybe you are feeling it is time to address a concern you have not been able to discuss in the past. My goal and hope is to get to know and understand you for the person you really are while creating a safe environment free of judgement.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
We all of areas in our life where we need a little bit of help. It takes a great deal of strength and courage to face these issues in our lives. Contrary to what some might think, I believe that addressing such issues is a sign of responsibility and strength. I like to think of it this way, if two people are dealing with the same problem, it is the person with courage and strength who is able to face their problem and work on in, rather than ignore. Asking for help is a sign of resourcefulness and strength.
