What types of services do you offer?
I offer psychotherapeutic and counseling services for adults, both individuals and couples.
What issues do you specify treatment for?
I am a Certified Sex Therapist, and my practice focuses on the treatment of sexual dysfunction, which primarily encompasses issues around sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and sexual pain. I also offer counseling for sexual addiction/compulsivity, trauma, and family of origin issues.
What therapy modalities do you use in your practice?
I consider myself pragmatic in my approach, and collaborate with my clients to determine the best treatment plan for them. I draw from cognitive-behavioral therapy, family systems, and couples counseling. I use Pia Mellody’s approach to treating codependency, love addiction, and family of origin issues and Pat Carnes’ model for the treatment of sex addiction. I am an EMDR trained therapist, and use that quite frequently as well.
When should one seek treatment?
Ideally, an individual or couple should seek treatment as soon as they notice an issue and after an exam by their primary physician to rule out a physiologic origin of the problem. I often find that the longer a couple allows an issue to persist, the longer treatment takes.
Why should someone choose to come to your practice?
While the focus of my practice is on sexual issues, I consider myself a very well rounded therapist, knowledgeable about a variety of issues. I have experience in treating anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, life adjustment issues, and family of origin trauma. I am dedicated to working collaboratively with individuals and their partners to lead more fulfilling lives. I am passionate about what I do, and pride myself on my natural ability to make working through problems as comfortable as possible.
What relationship exists between mental health and substance abuse? What services do you provide for someone suffering with either and/or both?
There is no doubt that abusing substances negatively impacts mental health and that people with mental health issues are more likely to have substance abuse problems. Usually when someone comes to my office and it is apparent that there are significant substance abuse problems, I will encourage them to seek specific counseling or join a program that focuses on that first. I am of the opinion that deeper issues cannot be resolved until active addictions are under control. I am very holistic in my approach and am a firm believer in utilizing a multidisciplinary team when necessary. I work closely with other mental health professionals, physicians, psychiatrists, and other health practitioners to better serve my clients and help them reach their full potential.
