My areas of expertise include compulsive and problematic sexual behaviors,
problems with pornography use, adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (both high
and lower functioning), intellectual disabilities, histories of trauma and PTSD,
relationship issues, life transitions and emotion management. I have extensive
experience working with people experiencing symptoms of depression and/or
anxiety. I also work with individuals involved in the criminal justice system.
My treatment approach is to provide support with insight and feedback to help
clients address current challenges and long-standing issues. With sensitivity and
compassion I work with clients to acquire the skills and tools to change unhealthy
behavior, learn positive ways of dealing with their emotions, and lead more
meaningful and fulfilling lives.
The therapeutic relationship is central to all that I do. I strive to provide a
therapeutic environment where clients experience safety, respect and
understanding. My approach is collaborative, non-judgmental and at times,
challenging. I work with each client to build on their strengths, uniqueness as an
individual and successes to achieve their goals.
