I help couples and individuals who struggle with sex and relationship issues, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, anger management, and porn & sex addiction. I am a sexual addiction specialist and have many years helping individuals and couples to heal and recover from this hidden addiction. I work with all genders, ages, and sexual orientations.

My training with Terry Real in the Relational Life Therapy Model has greatly influenced my approach to therapy. This model helps couples understand the natural relationship cycles of harmony, disharmony, and repair. In so doing, they can better navigate these cycles. I am a certified Relational Life Therapist.

I specialize in couples therapy and sexual addiction.

More Info About My Practice

We will discuss the fee for a 50-minute session during your phone consultation. If you cannot pay my fee, I offer a sliding-scale structure and occasionally adjust my rate. This fee is determined by a short phone call during which we discuss your finances. The rate for working with couples depends on the length of each session. Couples work is often longer than a standard 50-minute session. I accept payment in cash, check, or credit card. All sessions are offered in a private office in Walnut Creek. I also offer Skype and phone sessions.

I accept most insurance plans. During our initial call, I'll get insurance information from you and check with your provider before booking your appointment.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Why am I so passionate about therapy? Looking back on my own healing journey toward recovery, I am so grateful to all those who helped me become a functional adult. Therapists, the members of a weekly men's group, and 12-step sponsors all played a pivotal role. My inner work inspired me to help others with issues such as sex addiction, relationship challenges, and depression. I continue to seek training from experts across the globe, including master couples therapist Terry Real and trauma expert Pia Mellody. I use my training to help those suffering with family of origin wounds and relationship trauma. I am deeply fulfilled by helping couples, families, and individuals learn to value their relationships and themselves.
