My Secret Project

Around Feb a colleague and I started to dream BIG.  That's about when I stopped focusing on my blog and started on a secret project.  Now that project is not so secret any more.  In fact, you can find it right here: OR here:

YES!  An app has been born.  We are the FIRST social recovery app for porn and sex addiction.  

The app went live less than 10 days ago and is already being received really well.  Go ahead and check it out and tell me what you think.  

So, just as a heads up from now on you will get my blogs from the rTribe website.     

More on rTribe:

The purpose of the app is to help porn and sex addicts manage their recovery in community.  Anytime.  Anywhere.  Acting out has always been fingertips away and now recovery can be too.  

It's a smartphone solution for a smartphone problem.  Rather than just blocking clients from acting out, this app empowers addicts to take a proactive approach with their recovery.  It's not meant to replace therapy or 12 step, but it will be the daily recovery tool addicts use in between face to face meetings.

Until next time...

Stay Connected.

My goal as a therapist, speaker and writer is to help people experience the gift of sexual and relational wholeness. Currently I work at Christian Counseling Center in San Jose as a Marriage Family Therapist, Intern. Though I come from a place of faith I have treated clients from all creeds and orientations. I completed my Master's degree from Santa Clara University in 2012. Because I felt called to the area of sexual wholeness I became an Associate Sex Addiction Therapist in 2013. However, I quickly learned that trauma is the cause for a significant amount of sexual and relational brokenness so I also became certified in two trauma-reduction therapies--Affect Management Skills Training and Affect Centered Therapy (similar to EMDR). PSYCHOTHERAPIST. Trauma and Sexual Addiction. One of my passions is to help people break free from sexual addiction and heal from trauma. With hundreds of hours of training in trauma and sexual addiction, I provide clients a clear path out of addiction so that they may enjoy healthier relationships and lead more focused lives. Couples. I love helping couples discover the gift of a healthy marriage. I excel at teaching couples how to communicate, how to heal from betrayal and how to deepen their level of passion and intimacy. Teens. Being a teen is tough. I enjoy helping teens who struggle to connect with peers, have questions about identity or want to kick a pornography addiction. I also run a 10 week program for teen guys looking for a band of brothers and accountability with sexual compulsivity. Individuals. I believe that everyone has something to offer the world that no one else can. I hate to see depression or anxiety limit a person's ability to make their special offering come alive. I offer clients the compassion, tools and strategies they need to make their mark and fulfill their personal vision.
