Sex Addiction, Partner Betrayal Trauma, Inner Child Specialist, Parent Enmeshment.
I’m passionate about my work and know how difficult it is to be carrying around the distress of feeling different, isolated and alone. I made the decision to go into this field and help other to have a life better than they have ever known. With over 18 years of experience, specializing in mental health and addiction, I founded my private practice, A Safe Place to Share. I worked mainly with Medical Doctors, Psychiatrists and other therapists focusing on addiction, compulsive behaviors and mental health. This paved the way for the expansion and integration of my private practice into sex, porn, love addiction, betrayal trauma, infidelity, narcissistic abuse, inner child work and co/pro-dependency. I transitioned from the medical field and continued my education at the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP) in Arizona where I was educated and received my credentials as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and Certified Partner Trauma Therapist. The certifications from IITAP are the most in-depth training currently available for the treatment of sex addiction, partner betrayal trauma, sexual compulsive behaviors, multiple addictions and is widely sought after by experts in the field. I now have a very large and diverse practice working with individual clients and couples, providing online, real time, video support.
I have worked with a broad range of clients and have expertise in the treatment of sex, porn and love addiction and partner betrayal trauma. I am trained in enmeshment, Inner Child work and Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT).
I help to facilitate the creation of secure, lasting bonds between intimate partners and family members. I am interactive, solution-focused, task-based. My model is to provide support, encouragement, offering a highly personalized tailored approach to each client. I believe in developing a partnership between the client and myself in the healing process. I know that these supportive sessions have the power to heal and transform people’s lives. Working with me can help to address psychological, emotional and interpersonal issues. I will meet you wherever you are.
Reach out today, you are not alone. Start living a life better than you have ever known.
