As a licensed professional, I will serve you with compassion and understanding through a task- and strength-based focus and will provide you with a safe and confidential environment.
As a Clinical Psychologist, Certified EMDR Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist, Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist, and Certified Clinical Partner Specialist I offer help to individuals, couples, and families.
I believe in integrating the work of a professional team from a variety of disciplines to provide successful treatment of complex life situations. I work with you to determine which services and treatment providers you will need to reach your treatment goals.
Whether you need medical support to deal with medical conditions such as vaginismus, other pelvic floor dysfunctions or pain conditions or you need recovery support as you or a loved one are dealing with one or more addictions, I help you complete the tasks so that you reach your treatment goals.
