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.

Many providers work with individuals who have addiction issues. My concern is not only with the individual but those who love and support them. Family, friends, and work associates can either make or break someone who suffers from alcohol, drug, and other substances. Other addictions include process addictions like being addicted to shopping, gambling, work, or pornography/sexual addictions. Addiction effects relationships, and I believe unless the therapist works with the entire system, they are doing their clients a huge disservice. If you have been in treatment or seek to support someone who has been in treatment, please take this next step toward relationship counseling.

Having a complete understanding of the midbrain functions, and how dopamine is manipulated over a period of time, helps the addict understand that the decisions they make during their addiction, are not a reflection of their morality. These behaviors are survival instincts triggered by the mesolimbic system in an attempt to keep the addiction alive. Most addicts don't understand, that they are in the grips of a progressive illness.

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
