Going through life is a journey all of us must make, though how we make it through the various challenges and difficulties thrown our way can differ from person to person. Sometimes things we have used in the past to help us with life's earlier challenges no longer work with a newer issue and this leaves us feeling stuck, abandoned, hurt and sometimes hopeless. It is during these times getting a new perspective could help with dealing with these newer issues and therapy can often help you learn new skills or expand upon skills you already posses.
I believe that we all are who we are today from the experiences, situations, and people we have gone through or come in contact with throughout our lives. Sometimes these experiences with other people and situations are positive and have a healthy outcome to our lives and other times they are not so healthy and leave us with bruises or scars. Within our professional relationship, I hope to create a warm, empathetic and comfortable space within which you can learn to heal from these scars and to move forward in your life toward the goals and aspirations you have set for yourself. Sometimes the road to reaching these goals is difficult, but with the gentle encouragement I can provide, together we can help you reach those things in life to continue you through life's journey.

My Role as a Therapist
My role as a therapist is to be a promoter of and encourage the process to healing and growth, fostered through empathetic and gentle guidance. I truly believe that everyone possesses the power to overcome the struggles they are facing in life and sometimes having a safe, comfortable space to learn of and increase these strengths is all someone needs to work through life's struggles! Using humor, my own life experiences and clinical training, I take genuine pride in being able to help people discover their inner strengths to tackle their current life's strife.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
I believe one of the most important things a client needs to look for when they are shopping for a therapist is to find someone they feel comfortable with and someone they feel relaxed. Therapists are not "one size fits all" so they need to make sure they are comfortable and feel secure with their therapist. Their therapist should also portray a sense of honesty so they know they are not within the hands of someone who would have anything but their best interest in mind.

Ages I Work With
Groups I Work With
I am a certified sex therapist through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, so I have met specific requirements for professionally treating sexual concerns with psychotherapy techniques.
I have extensive professional experience with individuals who identify having compulsive sexual behaviors ("sexual addiction", "porn addiction" etc.). I have also extensive history working with adult men who have been convicted of a sexual offense and or have a-typical sexual attractions. If this is something you feel is an issue for you, I could possibly help! (Please note that this is not a total summary of my clinical experience, only a small portion of it.)
