Elements Behavioral Health Promotes Robert Weiss to Senior Vice President of Clinical Development

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013

This month, clinician, author and international speaker on addictive disorders, Robert Weiss, LCSW, CSAT-S, is being promoted from Director of Intimacy and Sexual Disorders Services to Senior Vice President of Clinical Development for the Elements Behavioral Health system.

Since partnering with Elements Behavioral Health in 2010, Mr. Weiss has developed a number of cutting-edge, highly successful intimacy and sexual disorders programs including The Center for Relationship and Sexual Recovery at The Ranch in Tennessee, which houses gender-separate programs for men and women struggling with sex, relationship and intimacy disorders, and the Stimulant and Sexual Disorders Program at Promises Malibu, a specialized program for men who consistently fuse stimulant and party drug abuse with relapse-related sexual behavior patterns.

In his new role, Mr. Weiss will continue developing innovative sex, intimacy and attachment disorders programming while working to enhance existing clinical programs to ensure that each one meets Elements Behavioral Healths high standards of clinical excellence. On an ongoing basis, Mr. Weiss will evaluate, support and oversee the therapeutic efficacy and progressive growth of the Elements Behavioral Health family of clinical programs. He will work to elevate treatment outcomes companywide, ensuring that the multiple behavioral, addiction and mental health concerns that clients present with are matched with the expertise required for long-term healing.

Our partnership with Rob has allowed us to provide specialized, highly effective treatment for a wide range of addictive behaviors, said David Sack, MD, the CEO of Elements Behavioral Health. Our clients and their loved ones will be well-served with Rob overseeing clinical development for all of our programs. He is a true visionary in the field and shares our values of clinical excellence, innovation, respect and exceptional service.

I truly thought that having the words corporate and health care in the same sentence was an oxymoron until I joined Elements, said Mr. Weiss. I was wrong and am learning that we can evolve truly effective, useful and sound clinical work within a larger framework. And for me personally, it doesnt get better than having Dr. Sack, who is an addiction psychiatrist, as a role model and leader, not to mention the quality treatment teams he has helped to develop. Dr. Sack and the Elements team understand and support my goal of offering cutting-edge, evidenced-based, meaningful treatment to those who entrust their lives and healing to us.

This has already been a busy and productive year for Mr. Weiss. In addition to his new role at Elements, Mr. Weiss completed Cruise Control: Understanding Sex Addiction in Gay Men, a complete revision of his first book, which addresses the challenges of gay male sex addicts in relationship to social media, smartphone apps, meth addiction and gay marriage, none of which were on the radar when the book first came out in 2005. Now, Cruise Control has become a definitive resource for any gay man, spouse or clinician wishing to better understand how the problem of sex addiction is reflected specifically among gay men and how to approach treatment with this population.

This summer, Mr. Weiss next book, Closer Together, Further Apart: The Effect of Technology and the Internet on Sex, Intimacy and Relationships, will be released. It is a non-judgmental, humanistic view of how peoples lives have been affected by the tech-connect boom of the past two decades. The book has a generational focus, looking at the relationship and cultural differences between those who grew up with a computer in their hands and digital non-natives. The book also provides an in-depth look at the ways in which digital technology is affecting sex, dating, relationships and intimacy in 2013, compared to the pre-digital media age of just 25 years ago.

Mr. Weiss is the founder of the Sexual Recovery Institute in Los Angeles, Calif. He is widely considered one of the nations foremost experts on sex and technology addictions along with the intimacy disorders that often underlie these problems.

Terrace Capital, Inc. Secures $61MM in Non-Recourse Senior Debt Financing- Industrial Portfolio Midwest, US.


New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2012

Barnett Capital LTD, located in Chicago, IL is a Family Office, founded by Joel Barnett, which provides high yield debt for owners of commercial & residential real estate and companies in need of financing for inventory and equipment. Mr. Barnett, for the past 30 years, has captained the firm that bears his name with the sole purpose of sourcing and managing investment opportunities for his family.

The proceeds of this $ 61MM, 75% LTV, CMBS loan were used by the borrower for the refinance of full recourse lines of credit that had been used to acquire, renovate and re-tenant 20 industrial properties, totaling 2MM square feet. The senior debt had a 10-year fixed term and a 25 year amortization schedule and required no personal guarantees. The non-recourse, permanent financing will allow Barnett Capital to expand its core lending business and continue providing capital to organizations and individuals, who are unable to obtain traditional bank financing.

According to a senior underwriter at Terrace Capital, Barnett had specific requirements which had to be met for certain business needs such as maximum leverage, the ability for partial releases of collateral and the flexibility to use letters of credit for reserves, instead of cash. Despite the challenges of working with single tenant buildings, multiple short term leases and several tertiary locations, Terrace was able to structure a max leverage CMBS deal which allowed for partial releases with acceleration rates as low at 105%, by cross collateralizing the assets and minimal use of letters of credit to mitigate lease rollover risk.

About Terrace Capital

Terrace Capital focuses on non-recourse loans and preferred equity of $ 5MM and greater on income-producing retail, office, industrial, multifamily, self-storage and hotel properties throughout the continental United States.

The Firm is a leader in providing permanent mortgages and equity for wide range of real estate transactions.
