My Approach to Helping

I work with people that struggle from childhood trauma, sexual abuse, betrayal trauma, anxiety, and depression, as well as sexual addiction and their partners. I will help you get to the deeper sources of your challenges and places of pain. I will work with you to help you connect to your internal world and implement new behavior patterns as you connect to your authentic self. I will help you find success in your relationships with loved ones and friends. As a certified sex addiction therapist, I am trained in meeting the needs of those dealing with compulsivity in their sexual behaviors, as well as their partners who experience trauma and hurt from the pain of betrayal. Therapy is best affected in the context of a relationship providing a compassionate anchor that allows you to feel safe in the process. I provide a therapeutic environment that sees the relationship between therapist and client as vital. Out of this comes the opportunity for renewed hope and strength for the challenges encountered, better relationships, and joy in the act of living.
