Sexual Addiction

Sexual addiction services provide crucial support for individuals struggling with compulsive sexual behaviors that disrupt their lives and relationships. As a counselor specializing in sexual addiction, I offer a safe, confidential space where clients can explore the underlying causes of their addiction. Through a comprehensive assessment, we identify triggers and patterns that contribute to unhealthy sexual behaviors. Using evidence-based therapeutic techniques, I help clients develop healthier coping strategies, set realistic goals, and create a personalized recovery plan. This holistic approach not only addresses the addictive behaviors but also promotes overall emotional and mental well-being.

In addition to individual counseling, my services include support for partners and families affected by sexual addiction. Understanding that this addiction can have far-reaching impacts, I provide couples and family therapy to rebuild trust, improve communication, and foster a supportive environment for recovery. By addressing both the individual’s needs and the dynamics within their relationships, we work towards sustainable change and healing. With dedication and professional guidance, clients can overcome sexual addiction and move towards a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Overcoming Sexual Addiction

  • Realize that involvement is detremental to mental health, family life and all intimate relationships, especially marriage.
  • Establish safeguards.  Internet filters are just the start. Accountability is a must.  One should confide in a trusted individual about their pornography involvement and discuss concerns.  Goals should be set and progress discussed often.
  • Get to the root cause of addictive behavior by asking, “Why do I turn to pornography?”, “What do I get from it?” One must recognize false beliefs that lead to pornography involvement which are not necessarily sexual in nature.
  • Understand the deeper issues…self-centeredness, lonliness, distorted view of sexuality or the opposite sex which contribute to involvement in pornorgraphy rather that the investment in real not virtual relationships.
