My Approach to Helping
I am focused, gentle, and direct. Sessions may feel intense and safe at the same time. In session with me, you can expect me to be curious, respectful, and above all non-judgmental. My clients tend to trust me even when they have a hard time trusting others.
Strengthen your resilience and broaden your range of choices
Therapy can be hard work, and creating a new path forward can be challenging and profoundly rewarding. Talking about who you are, how you came to be and what you really want takes courage and safety. The goal is to relieve suffering so that you can create lasting and significant changes.
Together we will work toward the goals that you set so that you can create the life that you want.
More Info About My Practice
Sex, whether alone or partnered, can be a healthy expression of your innate desire to connect, have fun, and celebrate who you are. Sometimes, though, your relationship to sex and sexuality can become problematic for you, perhaps masking other difficult longings like intimacy, a relationship, or connection for example.
I can help you with the anxiety, suffering, and depression when your relationship to porn, apps, and sexual behaviors is no longer in sync with who you want to be or become.
Much of my work focuses on men with addictive-feeling sexual behaviors. Often these behaviors are symptoms of a deeper longing to be more connected and less lonely.
I can provide tools to create positive change.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Chances are you have an idea of what therapy looks like...from movies, television, friends, or even your past experiences. Some good...some bad... How can you decide? Interview as many therapists as you can so that you can know and feel you?ve connected with someone that can empower you to heal.
Research shows that a critical factor in positive treatment outcome is the "therapeutic alliance." That's the "fit" between you and me. It's how well we work together. The ?fit? is a prognosticator of beneficial, effective therapeutic outcomes.
What's your sense of me? Am I listening to you, really listening? Am I compassionate? Empathetic? Do I hear you and can I reflect you? I am known for being incredibly attuned, compassionate, and non-judgmental.
When the fit is right, therapy has the potential to be a profound journey toward making and sustaining positive change and transformation. Make sure you choose the best companion and guide for you!
