Message to clients

My first goal in working with individuals and couples is to provide a non-judgmental, accepting and affirming space. Through our unique therapeutic alliance, you will develop awareness around the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that have perhaps made life feel unmanageable. We will develop strategies based on various modalities which have proven to be successful in bringing positive change. Together we will create a picture of what a meaningful life looks like for you and we will work together to manifest it into reality.

Depression - Providing support and promoting healing through hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and loss of interest and pleasure in life

Sexual compulsion - Coping with overwhelming sexual urges and impulses, such as excessive sexual fantasies or masturbation; developing alternative ways to reduce stress and alleviate suffering
