My work and passion centers on healing and strengthening relationships. I believe secure emotional and intimate connections with others; along with self-awareness and acceptance, are foundational to joyful living.  I have many years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families in all areas of relationship healing and wellness.  I work from a pro-marriage/pro-commitment stance and have a desire to help couples heal and rebuild their relationship.  

As a Certified Sex Therapy,  I specialize in working with couples or individuals experiencing sex/intimacy concerns, sexual dysfunctions, sexual fears/anxiety, sexual trauma, low sex marriage/partnership, desire discrepancies, gender identity/orientation, compulsive sexual behaviors (sex/porn addiction) and more.

In addition to my focus on sex therapy,  my private practice is also specialized towards working with individuals and couples experiencing a crisis or  betrayal in the relationship such as the discovery of an sexual/ emotional affair, the disclosure of a sex/porn addition/compulsive sexual behaviors or those discerning their relationship, and those couples discerning their commitment to the relationshipI also see clients who are interested in Intensive Counseling.  

I offer a comprehensive approach providing individual sex addiction treatment in addition to a focus on partner betrayal trauma and healing as a couple. I utilize a number of approaches in helping couples including the work of Patrick Carnes, Douglas Braun-Harvey, Doug Weiss and Pure Desire Ministries. Treatment highlights insight, awareness, psycho-education, and effective skills/solutions to help clients stabilize, manage symptoms, understand the addiction cycles, heal and work towards healthy communication, intimacy and emotional connection. I am working towards a Certification in Sexual Addition Therapy (CSAT). 

 I have been trained in Discernment Counseling, a treatment approach that is very specific to working with couples facing a crossroads of considering  divorce/separation or reconciliation; where one of both partners are leaning out of the marriage or relationship and uncertain about their longterm commitment. Discernment Counseling helps couples explore their options to determine what the best approach would be and whether they want to give their marriage another try, consider a healing separation,  or uncouple.  

As a specialist in the above areas of practice, I do not accept insurance and solely bill out-of-pocket at our current fee for service rates. 

​It is my hope that you will experience an environment of compassion and non-judgement as you begin your healing  journey.
