Marriage & Family Therapist, LMFT, SEP, CSAT
Over the years working in a variety of settings with many types of people I have found my niche is working with people who have lasting effects from childhood trauma, addictions and compulsive behaviors, and difficulties in relationships. Clients tell me that my ability to stay consistent, calm, and grounded helps them slow down so they can connect to their body - feel their emotions - and experience themselves more whole and alive. Since 2004 I have worked with people with problematic sexual behavior and their loved ones as a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) using a combination of trauma therapies and Pat Carnes Task Centered Approach.
I am skilled in two evidence based trauma therapies: EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) and Somatic Experiencing. Both approaches are highly effective when used to treat both symptoms (such as anxiety or depression) and issues that for some can be resistant with traditional talk therapy.
For 12 years I have worked with people struggling with unwanted sexual behaviors like excessive pornography use and infidelity. If you are ashamed and secretive about your sexual behavior, or are in a painful or unfulfilling relationship I can help. I also work with partners to find safety after betrayal.
