Sex Addiction Healing

Sex Addiction Recovery
Takes Courage and Strength

Sex addiction healing begins from the inside out.  If you’re hurting on the inside due to a sexual behavior that is out of control and your life seems to be falling apart, there is hope. Many people just like you have been in this situation, and in most cases, therapy is the answer.

Sex addiction healing is a process that uses specific techniques and tasks that effectively address the issue of the addiction and provide a long lasting solution. Unfortunately many people seeking the help of a therapist consider it to be sign of weakness, when in reality it is a sign of strength and courage.  By choosing to seek help you are demonstrating an inner strength. It is difficult to admit you have a problem and takes courage to seek help and to choose different path, however you are not alone. I am here to help.

experiencing trust in a warm, 
supportive environment

I schedule regular sessions to ensure your progress in working towards your goals in overcoming your addiction.  An essential part of your therapy is learning to trust in me, and in the process and realizing that therapy sessions are in fact, a safe refuge, where you can be open and honest.  This is an important part of the sexual addiction healing process and can serve as the beginning of healing your relationships outside our therapy sessions as well.

An important part of the healing process is sharing your life history with me as well as your sexual history so that I may make a process assessment.  Openly sharing allows us to strategize and select the best possible treatment plan to help you.

When I'm able to understand completely who you are and your goals, we can make tremendous strides together.  You may rest assured that everything you share with me is 100% confidential, giving us the best possible success in the therapeutic process.
