My Approach to Helping

Handling and sorting through life's challenges can be difficult, isolating, and quite painful. Because of this, I am passionate about assisting others as they work to develop effective coping strategies, increase their problem solving abilities, heighten feelings of hope, and develop skills to live their best lives. By working collaboratively and non-judgmentally with those in my care, I provide a safe, warm, and caring space for those struggling with anxiety, depression, behavioral, relationship, and sexuality related concerns.

It is unfortunate that stigma, shame, and guilt frequently prevent those who are most likely to benefit from therapy and counseling services from receiving the assistance they need and honestly deserve. Please know, you are not alone. You also do not have to figure it all out on your own.

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. My practice is dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families just like yours. I work with children, adolescents, and adults who are challenged by a variety of issues. My primary goal is to develop an individualized plan to support you in your efforts to live a life characterized by emotional, behavioral, and sexual wellness. My therapeutic efforts may additionally include helping you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself, your loved ones, and others in your life as well as to help you in your efforts formulate meaning. I am here to help and welcome you to my practice.

More Info About My Practice

I offer a free 10 minute consultation over the phone. In person and online video conferencing services are available for California and Georgia residents. Online video conferencing services are additionally available to Tennessee residents. We offer on-line Sexual Health Group Therapy for Men and Women located in California, Georgia, and Tennessee. Payment is due at the time of service. All major credit cards accepted. I look forwarding to answering any additional questions you may have about our practice and services offered.

Here are few suggestions to assist you as you contemplate treatment:

1. Consider the pros and cons of remaining in your current state. Has what you've tried been helpful? If so, what made it helpful? If not, what got in the way oflimited improvement?

2. Consider the pros and cons of seeking assistance. It may be helpful to talk to others who have benefited from treatment. If cost is a factor, consider a variety of treatment options. Insurance frequently covers treatment for mental health issues. Reduced rate treatment may prove to be a very viable option.

3. Seek out information about what goes on in therapy. You can do this by reading, consulting with potential therapists, and talking with informed others.

4. Be open. You may have to meet a few therapists before you discover the one that is right for you.

5. Be willing to give treatment a chance.

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

I have specialized training and experience working with individuals and couples challenged by issues related to anger, communication difficulties, physical intimacy, low or mismatched desire, orgasm, sexual abuse history, rapid or delayed ejaculation, out of control sexual behavior (i.e., sex addiction), aging and sexuality, infidelity, erectile problems, infertility, alternative sexualities, sexual pain, coping with an STIHIVAIDS diagnosis, and precocious sexual behavior in children and adolescents.

I additionally conduct comprehensive, empirically grounded evaluations for individuals struggling with learning problems, ADHD, developmental delays, emotionalpsychological difficulties, or who are experiencing legal or job-related challenges (e.g., child custody, parental fitness, competency, psychological injury, juvenile, fitness for duty, special education). My evaluations are not only designed to clarify diagnostic and referral questions but help to deepen knowledge of the strengths, weaknesses, and personality structure of those evaluated.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Making the choice to enter therapy is not always easy. Unfortunately, there remains a great deal of stigma, shame, and guilt surrounding mental health, emotions, and the concept of therapy. Media portrayals of psychotherapists as well as the therapeutic endeavor are frequently comedic, shallow, andor negative. I hear many potential clients state, "I should be strong enough to handle my problems on my own." The reality is, there is substantially more strength in seeking and receiving the assistance you need than in futilely attempting to solve a problem in isolation.

It is very interesting that the most elite athletes or musicians do not attempt to hone their crafts in isolation. Instead, they enlist the assistance of others who have developed specialized skills and knowledge in helping them reach their full potential. There is no shame when it comes to being at the top of your game. Therapy is an investment in your happiness and well-being that has the potential to yield not only short term benefits, but healing and wellness over the long term.
