As a health psychologist, I've worked extensively with individuals in non-traditional relationships or with non-traditional sex practices. My experiences include working with those with HIV, open-relationships, struggles with one's sexuality, and sexual compulsivity. My orientation is science-based – many of the most successful interventions are grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy and the principles of learning theory. I'm further influenced by acceptance- and mindfulness-based approaches, a personal Zen practice, and the development in recent decades of behavioral therapies that better capture the nuances of daily life, such as dialectic behavior therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. The direction and goals of treatment are solution-oriented, with specific goals for change.
