About My Clients

I specialize in romantic relationship concerns including therapy for infidelity, sex and intimacy, individual and couples therapy with a focus on rebuilding connection, communication, and conflict management skills. My clients are high-functioning, motivated, and committed to making changes in their love life and I love providing them with tools and techniques so that they can reach their potential and maintain gains even after they complete therapy!

My Background and Approach

I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and graduated summa cum laude from Univ of North Carolina, Chapel Hill with a degree in Psychology and with highest honors from Oakland Univ with a masters in counseling and specialization in couples therapy. In 2009, I worked at the Anna Freud Centre in London, UK with an emphasis on attachment in relationships and have completed more than 40 trainings in couples and relationship therapy since that time. My post-graduate education in sex therapy is from the University of Michigan and I am a certified infidelity recovery therapist from Beyond Affairs Network. I have extensive training in couples and relationship therapy including Level 3 of the Gottman Method and both levels of Emotionally Focused Therapy. I value continuing education and collaboration with experts in the field including Esther Perel, the Gottmans, Sue Johnson, and more. I have a background in clinical research which assists me in teaching evidence-based techniques to my clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

When I started Affinity Counseling Group, I wanted to do something different. I wanted my practice to reflect my unique skills and insights with an emphasis on evidence based treatments for couples and individuals with sex and relationship-related concerns only. I don’t treat children or substance abuse or individuals with severe mental health concerns... I refer those clients to specialized therapists in those fields because I believe GOOD therapy comes from being good at a few things, not all things. The field of psychology is constantly evolving so I focus on reading books, articles, and training with some of the world-leaders in the field of relationship and sex therapy. I am proud to say I’m a lifelong learner and see the benefits in my therapy sessions. I enjoy hearing how well my clients are doing and seeing their progress in treatment. I am so glad you are here. On behalf of Affinity Counseling Group, welcome!
