Are you here because you are ready to make a big change in your life? Or perhaps you are here because you have been thinking about changing however you are not quite sure how to go about it. You may also be trying to determine how to save your relationship, or a loved one. Whatever your reasons, things can get better starting now.
I take a different approach to treating sex addiction, sexual compulsivity and problematic sexual behaviors of all types. I don’t use twelve-step programs and you won’t hear me using addiction model language like addict, relapse, powerless and sobriety.
Instead, I use a gentle and supportive style of highly personalized psychotherapy to help individuals and couples create sustainable change. I’ve created a model for treating problematic sexual behavior using cognitive behavioral therapy that I adapt to meet the needs of each individual client. The focus is to help people replace problematic sexual behavior with healthy sexuality. In my program, you don’t have to attend group meetings or do anything that will make you feel any worse than you already do. By the second session you will have new behavioral tools that will allow you to begin thinking about your life in new ways.
My treatment model has helped hundreds of individuals behave differently and feel more in control of their lives. My focus is on identifying the problem, helping clients to understand the underlying cause, and changing the behavior in a way that will withstand the test of time. I also help clients create a new powerfully chosen lifestyle that has them feeling better about themselves and their relationships.
What you can look forward to:
- Being treated with kindness and dignity.
- A positive process filled with hope.
- A counselor who will help you find what is right with you, not what is wrong with you.
- Entirely new levels of self-awareness.
- New tools that will help you recognize your triggers and help you avoid problematic behaviors.
- The elimination of sexual secrets in your life.
- Ways to replace unwanted behaviors with healthy behaviors.
I’ve helped countless individuals create a new life free of sexual guilt and shame. As a sex therapist and couples counselor, I’ve helped countless couples reinvent their marriage with increased levels of intimacy and a new healthy sexuality.
Even if you are not quite sure you are ready for change, I will help you sort through your issues and work with you wherever you are at in your process. At your first appointment, you will receive my personal cell phone number so you no longer need to fight this battle alone.
