I specialize in treating couples and individuals that are struggling with sex and relationship issues, anxiety, depression, anger management, trauma, and sexual addiction. I am a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) and couples therapy specialist. I also offer EMDR to clients for such issues as trauma, loss, anxiety, and addictions.

My work with couples has been influenced by my direct trainings with couples therapy expert Terry Real () using his Relational Life Therapy model to help couples learn how to go through the natural relational cycles of harmony, disharmony, and repair more effectively. I am a certified Relational Life Therapist.

I assess and treat couples and individuals dealing with the impact of sexual addiction. I can help in all stages of individual and couples recovery - discovery, therapeutic disclosure, affair recovery, and rebuilding intimacy and trust.

I work with all genders, ages, and sexual orientations.

More Info About My Practice

The fee for individuals and couples for a 50-minute session is $125. I accept payment in cash, check, or credit card. All sessions are offered in a private office in Walnut Creek. I also offer Skype and phone sessions.

I serve as an out-of-network provider for insurance companies. Because I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in California, my services qualify for reimbursement under insurance plans that offer outpatient mental health benefits. I will need your insurance information to check on your benefits and file claims through my medical billing company. During our initial call or email, I'll get insurance information from you and check with your provider before booking your appointment.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Why am I so passionate about therapy? Looking back on my own healing journey, I am so grateful to all those who helped me become a functional adult. Therapists, a weekly men's group, and 12-step sponsors all played a pivotal role. My personal work has inspired me to help others with issues such as sexual addiction, infidelity, and couples issues. I am a certified sex addiction therapist and find great meaning in helping individuals and couples overcome the pain of sexual addiction, infidelity, and betrayal trauma. I also trained extensively with master couples therapist Terry Real (author of "The New Rules of Marriage") and greatly value working with couples to help build trust and communication in their relationships.
