My Approach to Helping

As a PhD and Resident in Professional Counseling I specialize in relationship issues, couples counseling, trauma, sexual problems and addictions including pornography, and sex addiction. I work with adults and teens who struggle with unwanted behaviors and couples who have difficulty communicating and dealing with conflict in healthy ways. Many of my clients have what is called a dual diagnosis where they struggle with addictions as well as a mental health issue such as depression or anxiety. I provide a safe and incredibly compassionate counseling environment and work with you to help rebuild and restore your life.
I work extensively with my clients to build safe, attached, non-judgmental relationships and provide empathy and understanding as clients share their stories. It is my belief that unwanted behaviors and relationship issues are ways of coping with the pain of the past. People are hurt in relationship and they will be healed in relationship.
I use a multi-faceted approach to counseling to assist my clients in uncovering what lies beneath the symptoms of their behaviors to expose and work on the root. It is common to struggle in life, but you don't have to struggle alone! Let's work together to get your life back on track and learn how to better take care of yourself and your loved ones.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

We all have problems in life, even those of us in the people helping profession. Like most good therapists, I have done my own therapy and bring much of my own work into sessions with clients. It helps for most of us to know that we are not alone in what we're struggling with. That it might even be considered normal. That we are not weird or somehow broken. It is my hope to help you feel less shame about your 'problems' after our sessions and that you can learn to feel more comfortable with, and compassionate towards your true self.
