Sex AddictionWe provide marriage counseling and individual therapy for those struggling with compulsive, destructive sexual behaviors and the negative consequences they cause. While sex addiction is a controversial term, some sexual behaviors can destroy relationships, families, and careers. 

People have different views on which sexual behaviors are acceptable and which are not. It is not a particular activity that creates a sex addiction. It’s the fact that a person continues, or even escalates, the behavior in spite of the harm it causes. 

The consequences can be grave: sexually transmitted diseases, financial and legal problems, job loss, and perhaps most painful of all, the end of a treasured relationship with a partner or spouse. 

We help people see whether their behavior is a sexual addiction.

If you’re unsure whether your behavior constitutes a sex addiction, try answering these questions

  • Are you sometimes preoccupied with sexual thoughts?
  • Have you hidden some of your sexual behavior from others?
  • Have you ever sought therapy for sexual behavior you did not like?
  • Has anyone been hurt emotionally because of your sexual behavior?
  • Have you ever felt controlled by your sexual desires?
  • Have you ever felt depressed after a sexual activity?

We can help you sort out, in a private and supportive setting, what is healthy for you and what is not. You might be relieved to find that your can make small changes so the consequences of your behavior aren’t as painful to you and partner. Or, you might find that your behavior is getting out of control, harming you, your partner, or your life.

We help you undo the damage caused by sex addiction.

Using a combination of marriage counseling and individual therapy, we help you form a plan to undo the damage and get control back. If you have betrayed your partner, we provide a path forward to restore trust and begin the healing process together.

If you work at it, you and your partner can have a healthy, loving, and passionate relationship. If you would like to learn about how we help individuals and couples struggling with compulsive sexual behavior, call us or E-mail us now for a free phone consultation.
