“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
"I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do"
"Struggling with out-of-control sexual behavior destroyed my relationship and jeopardized my family. It wasn't until my world spiraled out of control that I sought new treatment compared to the traditional talk therapy I was used to. I was so fortunate to find Peg and have her help me confront and heal the triggers underneath my behavior.
Peg has gotten me to uncover and recognize the reasons my OCSB exists. Together she has helped me develop a plan and to manage my behavior and make me accountable for my own actions.
Peg is compassionate and understanding and I am a happier person today because of her."
