HAS PORN TAKEN OVER YOUR LIFE?
If you find that porn used to be a fun escape but has now become a compulsion that is impacting your relationships, making you critical of your spouse, less satisfied with your sex life, and increasing your guilt and shame, sex addiction therapy can help you regain control.
HAS SEX TAKEN OVER YOUR LIFE?
Are you thinking about sex constantly? Has sex become a game for you with you constantly seeking your next conquest.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN SESSION?
I often tell my clients to expect to laugh during our sessions. Many people hold the notion that therapy must be a miserable, gloomy experience. While it is true the work we do together is serious and important, it does not have to be dreadful. You can expect to feel safe and respected during every session. We are working as a team to create meaningful solutions to improve your life. Therapy can be an empowering experience and one that leads to a healthier, happier you. You can expect to continuously work toward reclaiming your sense of integrity and confidence through honesty, understanding, and healing. In your sessions, we will work to assess the addiction, establish barriers to help you from acting out on your impulses, identify the steps you take toward porn or sex to help you learn to intervene, examine the meaning behind your fantasies, and heal any attachment wounds and disorders so that you can create healthy connections with the people in your life that matter most.
