My Approach to Helping

I provide a non-judgmental, caring environment, in which you can get the support and tools you need to move through your current struggle and into the solution. Explore your options, gain new insight and feel more confident about yourself and the choices you make. Sometimes life knocks us off balance and can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, stuck, or even self-medicating with substancesbehaviors. Our usual coping mechanisms may fail, our relationships may suffer, and we may feel powerless to change; we may even lose hope. However, I encourage you to reach out. There is hope. There is help. There are options. ONLINE SCHEDULING AVAILABLE VIA MY WEBSITE.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to my general practice, I also specialize in the following areas:

(1) Couples therapy. I thoroughly enjoy working with couples, helping partners move from a place of hurt and pain, to a closer, more satisfying relationship. I also help couples who choose to uncouple, and want to do it with as much grace and respect as possible. For those who want to stay together, couples therapy goes far beyond teaching couples how to communicate, it's about creating a newer, deeper and more satisfying connection. The couple is the backbone of the family, and when the partnership is threatened in any way, it can often throw one's individual life and family life into disarray. I am also skilled working with high conflict couples and couples afflicted with addictions.

(2) I also specialize in sexual addiction, as well as love and relationship additions. These addictions hurt the person acting out and the lives of every family member involved: the partner, the children and the family as a whole. Treatment is optimal when undertaken by clinicians that have acquired the specialized training and skills necessary to treat these complex addictions. Having received specialized training with Dr. Patrick Carnes, I am qualified to assess and treat these issues. I am very experienced working with addicts, partners of addicts, the couple, children or adult children, and the addicted family unit.

(3) I trained and am experienced working with trauma. I use EMDR and other m
