After over twenty five as a therapist, I now work primarily with couples, sexuality and food issues. I treat compulsive eating and sex or pornography use similarly, with compassion, cognitive self awareness and shame reduction.
My work is my passion and my life is about helping other people, This is why my goal is to help you recover and be at peace with your life in the most effective and timely way possible. I am certified and have taught and studied many therapeutic methods in my years as a therapist, and collaborate with each individual and couple to find the approach to healing that suits your unique situation and personality.
I respect diversity and individuality and that which you hold as sacred. I encourage you to expand and develop an awareness of the part of you that has knowledge of your own potential to heal yourself. If you are a couple I will help you to become aware of this healing part in each other, so that you can support, comfort and assist one another beyond therapy to become more connected to yourself, each other and that which gives your lives deeper meaning.

More Info About My Practice

My own life has not been free of personal and relationship struggles, and for these I am grateful. I am grateful because all my personal difficulties have brought with them a deeper capacity to understand anothers pain and suffering. My own struggles have given me the ability too feel what others feel and helped me to develop the compassion that I need in order to work with others with my mind as well as my heart.
In addition to my work and my own relationships which I value deeply. I am a passionate learner. I will never stop learning. I continually research any new therapeutic modality that I hear about in my profession. I do this for myself as well as for others. Learning gives me pleasure and it offers me the opprtunity to offer the most variety of clinically researched methods together with my own creativity, in order to help you in the most effective way possible.
