Goal-Oriented. Experienced. Client-Focused.
Couples Therapy


Trust is complicated, fragile and of foundational importance.  When it is broken, so is your relationship.  I can guide you to trust each other again, to reconnect and be happy.  I've been trained by Drs. John and Julie Gottman themselves and have a degree in Interpersonal Communication that greatly informs my work with couples.  I also have my own 32 year relationship, where I've successfully applied it all.  If you are unhappy in your relationship, please don't let another unhappy day go by.  It will not get better without help.  Reach out now to set up your first couple therapy session.

Sex Therapy


Sexual health is health.  I pride myself on being sex-positive and nonjudgmental.   I am a Certified Sex Therapist, trained and endorsed by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).  My interest in sex therapy began 31 years ago as the member of a Kinsey Institute research team.  My mentors are Doctors Alan Bell and Betty Mooney, both legends in the field of sex therapy and research.  I specialize in helping my clients work through obstacles to find the way to more fulfilling connections with their partners.  My clients often present with desire or performance concerns.  After thorough evaluation we discover that there are emotional and/or interpersonal issues preventing them from achieving their goal.  If the issue is the result of medical issues, I will refer you to friends in the medical community who will help you achieve optimum health. I also have extensive training in treating Out of Control Sexual Behavior.  The OCSB, sexual health model is pro-sexual health and non-pathologizing.  Nothing shocks me and no problem is too big or  small.  If you are ready to do something about the sexual health issue you are experiencing, I'm ready to help.



We can experience trauma in many forms.  Some of our trauma may come from childhood experiences, or you may have had a more recent run-in with trauma.  All trauma instantaneously reminds us of our vulnerability...and that is usually frightening.    Once it happens, there is no way around it...there is only through it.  Without treatment, our bodies hold the trauma energy and release it when triggered.  The release of trauma energy by our bodies negatively impacts our lived experiences and relationships.  I can help you.  I am trained in both EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) and IFS (Internal Family Systems).  I will help guide you to greater peace and agency.



If you want to get back on track and feel like yourself again, I can help.  If your wonder who your real self is, or if you feel like you've never been on track, I can help you too!  I have a big tool box of interventions to help my clients.  I don't believe that people are sick/patients, rather, we're all imperfect humans trying to figure things out and be the best version of ourselves we can be.  I can help you achieve your goals.  I specialize in helping men who have made a mess out of their lives become the man they want to be.



When there is an issue with one member of a family system, it affects everyone.  I have been working with families for the last 30 years, helping them to make corrections, reestablish trust, improve communication and reconnect with each other.  While most therapists only see family systems in crisis, my work in educational settings has allowed me to see what works, as well as what doesn't, which makes intervening in malfunctioning family systems a more efficient process.  Whether it is a troubled child, teen or family addiction, I have been able to help my clients get back on track and stay there.  Mode of treatment generally includes individual and group work using cognitive behavioral and solution focused brief therapy.

A little about trust...

“Trust is an essential component of a good relationship.  Building trust is like building a sand castle with another person one grain of sand at a time.  It takes mutual effort and time."
