I am a Certified Addictions Counselor and regularly work with people with substance abuse and dependency problems. I am comfortable working with folks participating in 12-step programs and in working with people who are not comfortable in 12-step work. I also enjoy working with behavioral addictions such as compulsive spending, gambling, internet use or sexual behavior (including pornography use). I work with family members who's lives are or have been effected by addiction.

Sexual and porn addictions mean that these behaviors are getting in the way of your full potential or disrupting your relationship. Your work or career may even be in jeopardy if you have been caught at the office. Often, we see porn use result in sexual dysfunctions like erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation or delayed ejaculation. Recovery mean discovery the emptiness inside that is filled with the temporarily exciting behavior or thinking through why sexual autonomy feels safer. We also run support groups for spouses of addicts to deal with shame and isolation and help discover healthy ways of relating.
