You and your partner make up the most important relationship you have. Your relationship health affects your personal health. By Investing in your relationship and partner, you will take your good relationship to a Thriving relationship. Helping your partner to thrive is the surest way to assure your own health. Most people have the tools for relationships they learned in childhoood. Now that you are an adult, some of these tools are treasures that you won't want to change, other tools are a hinderance. If you are motivated for Thriving relationships then you will want good solid information about how to have the best relationship possible. That's where I can help. I have a passion for bringing the newest latest and greatest relationship research to real people just like you. Get free updates in my newsletter.

I  am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for Washington State in private practice at Woodland Pathways Counseling. I also am  a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT), and a Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist (CMAT). I have been training with Stan Tatkin,  Level 1 & 2 Psychobiological Approach to Couples Counseling since 2012.

Sexual addiction is a complex addiction but there is hope! As a trained Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, I have completed training developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes, which required attendance at multiple training modules and supervision with a CSAT Supervisor. It also requires ongoing education so that CSATs such as myself are experts in providing sexual addiction therapy. It is a rigorous process designed to help me best help you.


The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

As a child, I  witnessed different types of relationships; some were exciting, safe, fun-loving, others were unpredictable, unsafe, and sometimes violent. I developed a curiosity for how the better relationships worked. This natural curiosity led me to become a trained professional counselor so I could share the information I learned. 

If you have ever wondered how to bring more closeness and emotional intimacy into your relationship I invite you to take my Free Relationship Analysis. Get free ideas and tips on how you can take action now to make that dream a reality in your life.

Your life can be Transformed!!!!!

Take a chance, it doesn't cost you anything....
