PhD, LPC, CSAT, CCTP
Sex Addiction Therapist and Sex Therapist
Hi, I'm Stevie; I imagine you didn't expect to find yourself here, but I am glad you are here. In my experience, we often don't get to choose what happens to us, but we can choose how to respond. Much of my work is helping my clients overcome what feels impossible one day at a time. My approach tends to be direct, collaborative, and accepting.
I approach work with my clients quite collaboratively. I'll always ask for your feedback, how you are feeling about your progress, and if you think a suggested technique or skill may or may not work for you. Our work together is similar to doing a big puzzle that is 3D. We have many layers to sort through and put together; we can only do it one piece at a time, but each session the picture becomes clearer and clearer.

Being trained as both a psychologist and a counselor, I take an investigative approach while building a collaborative, trusting relationship with you.
