As a brave recovering partner of a sex addict, I am passionate about helping others along a similar journey of recovering from a partner’s sexual betrayal and addiction.  I am also passionate about working with men and woman struggling with sex addiction or sex and love addiction.

Besides specializing in working with sex addiction, partners, couples, and their families, I also specialize in helping individuals heal from eating disorders.

I believe it’s important for partners to be empowered…to be given all of the information so as to make the wisest, most loving choice for themselves. I believe in both partners and addicts learning about their past trauma and how it effects their intimacy with one another.

In my own training and personal recovery, I have learned that setting firm healthy boundaries with oneself and others is crucial to the healing process. I have also learned how to navigate the effects of PTSD associated with betrayal trauma as well as family of origin trauma.

Body Image

Individual Therapy

What if instead of hating your body, you could feel confident about your appearance. What if you could grow in acceptance and appreciation of what you see in the mirror rather than spending most of your time criticizing your appearance and obsessively comparing it to others.
