I understand what it's like to face the pain of infidelity. If you feel stuck, confused, or hurt in your relationship, you don't have to keep suffering through heartbreak. I can help you feel confident in yourself, your sexuality, and heal from the pain of betrayal. You will learn what you value, what you want, and how to advocate for your needs. Together, we will find clarity in your relationships from the past to the present so you can be hopeful about love and trust in your relationship.
My experience with sexual wellness allows me to help individuals struggling with sexual health. Whether it is difficulties with sexual dysfunction or orgasm, we will get to the root of the problem and help you enjoy a satisfying sex life. Intimate betrayal can also cause significant disruption to your sexuality. We can process this impact and how to achieve healthy sexual closeness.
As an award winning author and recognized authority on Sex, Love, and relationship issues, I have brought my work to the media. I was the lead therapist appearing alongside Dr. Drew in VH1′s Sex Rehab. Since then there have been regular appearances on Oprah, Extra, Access Hollywood, Nightline, NBC News, the TV Guide Network, Dr. Drew’s podcasts, Redbook, KROQ’s Loveline, and Headline News. I co-authored an award winning book entitled Making Advances: A Comprehensive Guide for Treating Female Sex and Love Addiction which provides insight into female intimacy and relationship struggles. I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to bring hope and healing to a broader audience.
I have had the honor to study and work with some of the best clinicians in the field, including Dr. Patrick Carnes, the lead expert in Sex Addiction, as well as Pia Mellody, renowned trauma specialist. Through my time at The Meadows, a residential treatment program for sex addiction, I learned to conduct “Post Induction Therapy,” a one-of-a-kind trauma treatment that facilitates deep healing for shame and abuse. I am EMDR Certified and help individuals move past their trauma in a safe and healing manner. I have also trained with Dr. David Schnarch and Esther Perel, both acclaimed authors and experts on desire and intimacy challenges in the field of Sex Therapy.
I have extensive experience working in renowned treatment settings including Promises, Sexual Recovery Institute, and The Meadows, which has provided me with a deep grasp on addiction and relationship struggles. My most recent work includes women’s intimacy and relationship issues including Female Sex and Love Addiction. As the Program Director for Willow House at The Meadows, I created, developed, and launched a highly specialized and innovative program for women struggling with love, sex, and relationship challenges.
