Licensed Professional Counselor

While I am willing and capable of treating those with substance abuse, I specialize in the treatment of sexual addiction and affair recovery. I enjoy working with men who desire to change their behaviors when it comes to unwanted or even harmful sexual acting out. I have worked with men who have been addicted to pornography, escort services, strip clubs, dating sites used for casual sexual encounters, voyeurism, exhibitionism, S&M, fetishes, serial affairs, and more. I take a trauma model stance when helping these men and their spouses. Wives: This is not your fault. His porn use is not because of you. I also work closely with a female in my practice who specializes in helping spouses/S.O.'s

Addictions can manifest in just about anything: alcohol/drugs, food, sex, power, money, etc. If you see something in your life having more power than you would like, I would love to talk with you about how counseling can benefit you. In therapy, we will explore skills and strategies to assist you in interrupting these behaviors, and also focus on understanding the root causes that underlie the addiction.

I have fifteen years of experience working as a professional counselor in the field of addictions. As a recovering addict myself I bring a level of empathy and experience that I believe greatly increases my effectiveness in connecting and working with folks struggling with addiction and with loved ones who struggle to how best to express love and support while they avoid enabling the addiction. Addiction cannot be dealt with alone. It is impossible to calculate the value of seeking experienced help when facing addiction.

Addictions can hold great power over us and we often perform them on a daily basis without ever knowing the possible harmful consequences they can reap. Addictions can be more than things like drugs and alcohol and we need to alter our perception and definition of what addictions really are. Clients who come to me for addiction counseling can expect to experience a different kind of therapy. My approach includes using a scientific understanding in the nature of addiction and changing ones thoughts from pro-addiction to pro-recovery, combating triggers and cravings and dealing with difficult emotions. The ideas and treatment concepts I use will help you regain your life back.
