We currently are living in a world in which the word "addiction" is cast about carelessly. Addiction, simply put "is an ongoing, out-of-control pattern of compulsive...behavior that is causing problem in...life (Sex Addiction 101, Weiss. p.1). As the definition indicates almost anything can become an addiction - food, gambling, substance abuse, alcohol, sex, and work to name just a few. My approach as a therapist is to get to the root desire or wound that drives addictive behavior. Once identified, this is where the real work and real change take place.

The human heart has a great capacity for both pleasure and pain. When we seek to protect ourselves from heartache in unhealthy ways, strong addictions can overtake us. While we may recognize the harm we are causing ourselves and others, we cannot simply "choose" to stop. Our bodies and brains are overcome by urges we cannot navigate alone. If you struggle with addiction, I desire to walk alongside you on the path toward recovery and deeper understanding of the underlying causes of your unique struggle.

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
