I am a psychotherapist and the founder of The SAT Project.
When clients come to me, they are often troubled with an inability to access or express emotions. It is confusing and frustrating not to have an emotional vocabulary. My own early-age trauma experiences led to a psychology degree and a desire to help others access their unexpressed feelings.
It's not unusual to be unaware you are coping with trauma. But in one way or another, anyone who has experienced it tries to telegraph their struggle. This sometimes leads to physical ways of acting out, such as out-of-control sexual behavior or substance abuse. It can also lead to depression and anxiety or even issues with extreme self-sufficiency.
Through our work together, you'll develop the ability to locate and express your needs. You'll also learn to identify when past experiences negatively impact how you relate to yourself and others in the present.
Treatment improves the way you connect and experience intimacy. It will help you feel empowered to live a fuller and more satisfying life.
For over twenty-five years, I've treated individuals, couples, and groups for out-of-control sexual behavior, trauma, as well as issues of gender and sexuality. I’m also a frequent lecturer and writer on sex and gender, and I provide graduate-level training to clinical social workers.
