Private and Effective Treatment for Addiction in Durham

I am a clinical psychologist providing therapy to individuals, couples and families in the Triangle area of North Carolina, including Durham, Raleigh, Cary, and Chapel Hill. I also provide teletherapy services to people who are too far away, or prefer non-office based treatment. I treat a wide variety of clinical disorders such as substance abuse, depression, anxiety, OCD, and personality disorders. However, I specialize in the treatment of  behavioral addictions like pornography addiction, gaming addiction, internet addiction and the cluster of behaviors known as "sex addiction." 

I am frequently asked if I am only an addiction therapist. The answer is no, I see all types of people with all types of issues. If I feel like I am not able to help you, I will tell you up front, and I will help you find someone who is a good fit for you. 


There are many good therapists in the Raleigh/Durham area. There are many fewer who specialize in addiction, and fewer still who specialize in behavioral (or process) addictions like gaming addiction, pornography addiction, or sexual compulsivity. However, the most important difference is the way I practice. I believe that you should get a return on your investment when working with a therapist. You are paying me to help you, and I take that mandate seriously. Because of that, I use a variety of different evidence-based approaches to help you achieve results. I also believe in being an active participant in the therapeutic process. The relationship has been shown to be one of the most important factors in successful therapy, and a strong relationship comes about when both people are working hard.
