I provide general psychotherapy for individuals and couples. In addition, I specialize in three areas of concern – Advanced Addiction Recovery, Sex and Love Addiction, and Relationship Issues. Advanced Recovery is for individuals who have completed inpatient or outpatient treatment for substance abuse or for those in sustained recovery who are facing current issues beyond what can be addressed in their support community. Individual therapy addresses ongoing recovery issues, relapse prevention, relationships, self-esteem and resilience, refining coping strategies, and childhood and family of origin issues. Advanced Recovery Services also include partner and family counseling.As a CSAT I provide individual, partner, couples and group sex and love addiction therapy (IITAP treatment protocol – www.sexhelp.com). In couples therapy I combine family systems theory with Gottman and Emotionally Focused techniques to address communication, conflict resolution, and emotional intimacy concerns, creating a healthy core-focused relationship.I believe good, effective counseling and psychotherapy comes from a close and trusting relationship developed between me and my client(s). This takes time to build, but you should feel an immediate sense of connection and being heard and understood during the first session. Let’s see if you feel we are a good fit.
