Sometimes we experience things which we just have a hard time getting over. Some in our lives might ask why we can't just let it go. It is important to recognize you are unique in how you process difficult things, and sometimes they get "stuck" and you need to speak with someone who is willing to hear your pain, and guide you to find your peace. I can help.
Relationships are a constant work in progress and sometimes we lose our way. In order to find healing in our relationships it is necessary we become aware of the parts we play which keep the problems in place. I work with couples and individuals to improve relationship function with friends, family, or intimate partners.
Depression and Anxiety are a common problem in our world. Sometimes it seems so much a part of you, you can never climb out. You will become aware of coping methods which help you feel more like you again. If you put them into practice you are likely to find healing. I am here to help you find hope.
What some people don't understand about addiction is that it isn't always about the substance or activity, it's deeper than that. Finding the motivation to change this method of coping to something which is healthy for you isn't as easy as recognizing it's "bad for you". It takes guts to take this challenge on. You and I can dive into changing your thinking to help change how you deal with painful emotions. Gaining freedom from substances and learning lead a life which addresses your thoughts, feelings, and needs. We can work together to help you find hope of a different lifestyle.
Sex therapy is helpful for those who are struggling with any sexual concern. Whether it be problems of aging, relationship distress, sexual mismatch with partner, gender dysphoria, or problems related to how your sexual attitudes match with your sexual desires. Therapy is simply us examining these issues and learning how to move forward in a way which brings you to your best. Sex therapy does not involve sexual touch. My specialty is couples, issues in aging, or sexual trauma.
