If you are asking yourself "WHAT NOW?", IN THERAPY YOU CAN:
If you or the ones you love are hurting, there are proven methods to recover and heal
We can help with highly specialized treatment for anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma and problematic sexual behaviors.
When life becomes increasingly unmanageable because of addictions, compulsivity, relational trauma or lingering feelings of anxiety and depression, you might come to believe that there is something wrong with you and lose sight on what is possible to change the situation.You might also be unwilling to ask another for help thinking that this will make you even more vulnerable. If you can make it alone through the initial step of reaching out, through therapy I will support you giving up the idea that “something is wrong with me ” and concentrate on what is possible to create positive change. As a psychologist using evidence and research based modalities rather than the latest popularized therapeutic slogans, my emphasis is in using tried and tested methods that have been proven effective in the areas of depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, process addictions (sex addiction, gambling addiction, food addiction, spending, etc…) and all forms of trauma (especially relational/betrayal trauma).
We offer highly specialized treatment for sexual addiction/compulsivity, sexual abuse/trauma, cybersex/pornography addiction, sexual and intimacy problems, love addiction/love avoidance , chemical and process addictions affecting individuals as well as the couple and family systems.
If you are the partner or family member of someone struggling with sexual addiction, the pain and trauma of discovering betrayal and secrecy can be devastating. Sexual addiction never just affects the addict themselves--while the addict receives treatment, partners and family members silently feel the impact of the addiction for years afterwards. This is even more true if they don't seek specialized counseling. Choosing a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Partner Specialist ensures that the treatment you will receive will be highly specialized to address the real problems that one has to face when dealing with relational trauma and betrayal.
