Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
If you’re thinking about starting therapy, you have already taken the first step toward making a change. When you are ready to examine your life – what works, what doesn’t – in a safe, supportive environment, I invite you to get in touch with me. Together we’ll take a look at where you’ve been (your past) in order to understand how you got to where you are (your present) and work to make positive changes that will enhance your life.

In addition to working with individuals and couples, I specialize in parenting. I help parents change their family dynamics to encourage cooperative, respectful behavior in their kids. My approach aims to honor each child’s individual personality while supporting the parents’ role as family leaders. I advocate a loving but firm style of parenting. My articles on parenting have appeared in Parents, Working Mother, Woman’s Day, Healthy Kids and other publications.

My training and experience has allowed me to help individuals and couples by providing effective treatment for their relationship challenges. My additional training as a CSRT allows me to help individuals and their partners who are struggling with the specific challenges created from a sex or porn addiction.
