    My Approach to Helping

    Are you holding on to sexual secrets and feeling tired of the stress of keeping them hidden? As a therapist specifically trained in sex addiction, I can help. It’s important for you to know that you’re not alone in the situation that you are in, and there is always a pathway out of this.

    You may be worried that you’re going to lose your partner or spouse, hurt your children, or jeopardize your career. Don’t let these secrets control your life any longer. You can start today by taking that most difficult step of calling someone who can help. I know that it’s not easy, but you don’t have to live in a world of fear, shame, and guilt.

    Together, we will create a plan that will help you gain control of your sexual behavior. Whether you’re struggling to gain control of your use of pornography, phone or cybersex, or you have been having anonymous sex, I can help. I also know that this behavior isn’t easy to talk about. That is why I approach such topics with a gentle approach. Then we will work so that you can get your partner or spouse to trust you again, improve on your sexual relationship, and live a content life overall.

    Don’t allow your stress, guilt and shame to mount any higher. Call me today to learn more about how I can help you with the difficulties in your life.

    More Info About My Practice

    I have specialized training in healthy sex and sex addiction. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist, I have specialized training in helping clients manage their behaviors, regain trust in their relationships, and build healthy intimacy, sexuality, and courtship.

    I also have a lot of training in trauma therapies such as somatic experiencing and EMDR. These can help through a variety of stressful and traumatic experiences.

    I am the owner and founder of Vantage Point Counseling Services, which is a group practice that specializes in helping people with addictions, trauma, sexuality, and relationships. Please visit our website to learn more.

    Specific Issue(s) I’m Skilled at Helping With

    I specialize in helping people with issues relating to sexuality. As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, I specialize in helping couples work through issues with sexual intimacy, as well as infidelity. In this work, I also help people who are in the LGBT community, by helping them with self-acceptance, issues relating to coming out, and any other issues in their lives where an affirming therapist is needed.

    I’m also trained in The Daring Way, which is an experiential program based on the research of Dr. Brene Brown. I offer Shame and Vulnerability groups that utilize this work to help people build stronger connections and become more resilient to shame.

    The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

    I encourage clients to come into therapy weekly, but also work with clients bi-weekly. Meeting regularly keeps things on your mind and also helps to build the solid relationship which is the most important thing in therapy.
