Compulsive Sexual Behavior

& Intimacy Specialist

I approach my work with unwavering care, compassion, and diligence. Working in the counseling field for almost 10 years, I've helped countless individuals find healing from addictive, compulsive, and problematic sexual behaviors. I whole-heartedly believe in the power of therapy as a catalyst for change and transformation in your life. 

 

I specialize in problematic sexual behaviors, including sex addiction and porn addiction and compulsive sexual behaviors. My clients often describe their sexual behaviors as out of control and causing havoc in their life. You may find it difficult to manage sexual thoughts or urges or struggle with fidelity in your relationship. Some clients struggle with past traumas or have difficulty connecting emotionally with their partner, leading them down a path of secrecy and shame. As a result, you may feel overwhelmed by feelings of hopeless, depression, anxiety, self-loathing, and you may be afraid of losing your family.


I understand the pain you are in and the depth of your suffering. As a specialist in problematic sexual behavior, I provide a safe and supportive space for you to break free from your destructive cycle. I can help you gain control over your mind and behaviors and explore the root cause. I will give you the tools you need to be free from shame, manage anxiety and stress, connect with others, heal from past wounds, and repair the trust in your relationship. Together, we will create a path towards recovery by gaining valuable insights into underlying patterns and developing healthy coping mechanisms to manage your emotions in a safe way.


I draw from other therapy models including the Out of Control Sexual Behavior model, as well as 12-step and non-12 step aligned approaches. For those who wish to address their sexual behaviors problems through the lens of faith using spiritual disciplines and practices, I have experience in incorporating Christian-based methods in helping clients to overcome unwanted sexual behaviors.


One of the key factors in my success with clients, is that I believes there is no one-size-fits-all approach to helping people change and grow. I am trained in and offer multiple evidenced based therapies for effective and lasting change including Person Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. 


About Chris

I am passionate about the work I do with my clients day in and day out. I truly feel that being a therapist is what I am supposed to be doing in life, and take pride in my job both in and out of the office. I am constantly learning from, and am impacted by, each client that I work with, and I consider it a true honor to be a therapist to others.


Outside of counseling, I enjoy learning to surf (yes, even in the cold Washington coast waters!) and learning to play the ukulele. As a true Seattleite, I enjoy craft coffee, exploring the beautiful PNW environment, and being active outside.
