Practice Description: I specialize in treating couples and individuals that are struggling with sex and relationship issues, anxiety, depression, anger management, trauma, addiction, and infidelity. I am a certified sex addiction therapist (CSAT) and couples therapy specialist. I also an EMDR therapist trained through the Parnell Institute. EMDR can be very helpful for such issues as trauma, loss, anxiety, and addictions. I work with all genders, ages, and sexual orientations.

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.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist:

What makes me passionate about being a therapist? I look back upon my own life and journey of healing and recovery and feel so grateful for the people that helped me to become a functional adult - including therapists, 12-step sponsors, and the members of a weekly men's group. All of my own inner work inspired me to become a licensed psychotherapist to help others who struggle with such issues as addiction, trauma, low self-esteem, and relationship problems. I continue to receive training from my mentors around the country including Terry Real and the Relational Life Therapy Approach to working with couples, Pia Mellody and the Post-Induction Therapy Training to work with those suffering from trauma and co-dependency, Dr. Patrick Carnes and the Certified Sex Addiction therapist approach to working with sex addiction and betrayal trauma, and Laurel Parnell and attached focused EMDR. I find deep fulfillment in helping individuals, couples, and families learn to value themselves and their relationships.
