My Approach to Helping
If you or your partner are suffering because of sexually-compulsive behaviors that feel out of control, then you deserve help from someone who understands what you are going through. I am part of a practice that uses evidence-based approaches to help people who are struggling with porn and sex addiction – and their intimate partners – to break free of the cycle and to heal. These approaches are consistent with best-practices in the addiction treatment field more broadly, but also take into account the ways that porn and sex addiction are distinct from other forms of addiction. These include the stigma and shame associated with sexually compulsive behaviors, recognizing that long-term abstinence is not usually the goal, and accounting for the uniquely personal impact of porn and sex addiction on intimate partners
If you chose to work with me, my first goal will be to create an open and non-judgmental space where all parts of you feel welcome. Our work together will be truly collaborative, because while I have specialized training as a clinician, you are the "expert" when it comes to YOU Together, we will clarify what you want to get out of therapy and customize your treatment plan.
Please note that I am currently accepting clients for telehealth only.
