Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Although I specialise in sex and porn addiction treatment, my work encompasses more than just helping my clients stop their self-destructive behaviours. Of course, sexual sobriety is crucial for therapeutic progress, but I have found that healing the childhood neglect and abuse that--without exception--underlie the development of a sexual addiction is also essential if the individual is to have the truly transformative recovery he or she deserves. I aspire to offer patience, empathy, expertise, and loving, respectful care to my clients, which I hope they experience from me in our work together.
I am among the pioneers of addressing the issue of sexual addiction, founding The Sexual Addiction Treatment and Training Institute (SATTI) in 1992. As well as providing treatment, I also supervise an experienced treatment team, each member of which has expertise in experiential modalities, which are especially helpful in treating sexual addition. We offer individual, couples, and group therapy for individuals at all stages of the recovery process, as well as an inperson 10-day Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Our IOP gives participants a powerful jumpstart to both achieving sexual and porn addiction recovery and to healing the childhood trauma that underlies the addictions them and perpetuates them. Based on our years of experience in helping hundreds of addicts, we strongly believe that each individual has the capacity to recover from sex and porn addiction. Let me and my team help you start your healing journey so that you can find and live the life you truly deserve.
