You're here because you're looking for help for your relationship or for yourself.
As a couple perhaps you are struggling with trust and communication issues and find yourselves getting routinely stuck when trying to talk about difficult topics such as working through the aftermath of an affair, parenting, finances or sexual issues. If so, I can help you rebuild trust and reestablish the foundations of respect and friendship in your relationship. I have extensive training and experience in helping couples and individuals not only deal with these difficulties but to also promote longer-term positive effects such as healing and personal growth.
If you’re here because you are struggling with compulsive sexual behavior, I can help you in two profound ways. One, I can help you understand the cycle or system of your behavior and help you learn the tools to replace compulsive thoughts and urges with more positive actions. Two, I can help you discover the root causes of your behavior and how to dig in to the feelings that have always been beneath the compulsive behavior.
