Sexual Addiction therapists in Danville, Kentucky KY
Psychologist, Psy. D., M.A.
Matters of intimacy can be physical in nature that, in some ways, connect with our emotional lives and can become more complicated as we grow into our relationships with others.
I work extensively with both Clinical and Forensic populations, delivering targeted Behavioral, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral (DBT) Therapies tailored to the specific needs of each individual client. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults with Personality Disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic, Antisocial), Mood Disorders (Anxiety, Depression), Behavioral Disorders (Oppositionality, Anger), and Sexual Dysfunction. In addition, I treat sex offenders, individuals convicted of violent and non-violent criminal offenses, perpetrators of domestic violence, and other forensic populations. * In my capacity as a Psychological Evaluator, I conduct thorough diagnostic clarification of psychological symptoms in clients of all ages. These range from Sexual Disorders, to Developmental Disorders (Autism Spectrum, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity), Substance Use Disorders, Mood Disorders (Bipolar, Obsessive-Compulsive), and Personality Disorders. * In my Forensic Evaluation work, I conduct assessments upon referral from the Courts, private, state, and federal agencies, self-referrals, and attorneys. These Evaluations include: Fitness for Duty (FFD), Sex Offender Risk Assessments, Violence Risk Assessment, Psychosexual, Substance Abuse, Competency to Stand Trial, and Parenting, as well as Pre-Sentence Investigations, and various other forensic evaluations.

Cognitive Behavioral Treatment for sexual addictions
27 Years Experience
I have found that people who are addicted to sex need to understand the function the addiction is playing in their life. With this knowledge, the individual can better address their problems and desires. I also teach people skills for unconditionally accepting themselves as shame and self-downing will not help them overcome their issues in this sphere of life. Finally, I teach people how to cope with sexual urges that will get them into trouble and how to live meaningful lives.
