What Sets Me Apart from Others?
In my office I have treated both the addict and the partner, gaining insight and perspective from both points of view. This has been tremendously helpful as a clinician to help traumatized couples establish compassion for each other at one of the, if not the most. darkest time in their lives.
How Can I Help You?
With over 15 years of experience, I have heard in-depth stories from people in pain about one of the two most private areas of a person’s life, their sexual behavior, the other one being their financials, which are often inextricably tied together. I use Brainspotting as well as EMDR as treatment modalities to help clients heal from past traumas and current day issues that are blocking healing and emotional freedom.
My Committment To You
I will energetically and creatively guide you, or you and your partner, out of destructive patterns and into integrated, thriving love and sexuality, devoid of shame and guilt. I will use mindful expertise to assist you while holding you accountable on your journey toward attainable sexual health.
