I am Licensed Mental Health Therapist, specializing in treating addiction, trauma, and intimacy issues. I enjoy my focus on both couples and individual intimacy and sexual issues. I believe that happy and fulfilling relationships are very much worth that little bit of extra work needed to make them thrive.
My training in EMDR, EFT, and Trauma-Focused CBT enables individuals and couples to change those behaviors that seem to be preventing them from fully allowing their lives, and relationships to flourish. If trauma, addiction, or intimacy issues are holding you back, intruding into multiple areas of your life, please know that you do not need to continue to suffer! Take charge of your life and seek the help you deserve.
Some of the modalities that I am trained in, and employ are EMDR, CBT, and Mindfulness practice. I have been in the field of addictions and dual diagnoses for over 15 yrs. I have worked in inpatient psychiatric facilities, substance abuse treatment centers, & in outpatient settings. I am also a PhD Candidate, experienced with diverse populations. Turning to drugs/alcohol/sex or other compulsions to medicate and cope with childhood issues or trauma is not a long term, viable strategy in life. It begets more suffering. Your biggest obstacle may be simply reaching out and asking for help. I would be honored to accompany you on that journey to happy and fulfilled life.
