Welcome to my specialized sex addiction and other intimacy disorders practice. I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help and how important it is to find the right kind of care. I believe in providing the highest quality of treatment for long-term healing.
I specialize in Sex Addiction (e.g. Internet pornography, anonymous sexual partners), Love Addiction (e.g. romantic obsessions), and Sexual Anorexia (i.e. avoidance of sexual intimacy) treatment with the therapeutic focus on stopping active addiction. This disease is progressive and in the midst of it the morality and even legality disappear (i.e. illegal Internet pornography). You do not have to continue to use sex to manage your emotions. You do not need to continue to feel empty and out of control. There is hope for healthy sexual intimacy.
My practice is rooted in an evidenced-based task-centered approach utilizing an internationally recognized research completed by Patrick Carnes, Ph.D. a pioneer in sex addiction treatment. As clinical psychologist and CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist), I have a passion for your recovery. I completed training with Dr. Carnes and my goal is to provide a safe and healing environment rooted in the combination of relational, cognitive behavioral therapy and spirituality.
I can help you end the wasteful time consumption and isolation; heal the loneliness and pain associated with this disease; accept, have faith in and love yourself; treat the depression and anxiety; resolve the underlying trauma; rebuild trust and repair your relationships (e.g. partner, parent); experience healthy sexual intimacy and regain control of your life.
If given an opportunity, I want to help you experience the freedom from this disease and live a dignified life. You don't need to feel ashamed about your sexual behavior regardless of the extent and the painful consequences. You deserve to live a sane, sober, healthy, and honest life.
