Sexual addiction can consume your life...whether you are the addicted person or the person who loves them. I have worked with people struggling with sex addiction for many years, and know the steps needed to begin the path of healing, or move further on that path. Sexual feelings are inescapable for most people, which is why it requires a different approach than standard addiction treatment based on AA. We will work together to heal the wound underneath your addiction and create a healthy relationship for you with your sexuality. If you are the partner of a sexually addicted person, we will work towards healthy boundaries that will help you handle your loved one's addiction.

Addiction refers to a state of dependence that an individual can develop on a substance, such as nicotine or alcohol, or on a behavior, such as gambling in order to achieve a desired effect such as euphoria or sedation. The addicted individual usually grows to need more of a given substance or behavior to create the desired effect. This process is called “building tolerance”. The abuse of the substance or behavior leads to a deterioration in the individuals health and functioning. They rationalize their self-destructive behavior in order to justify continued addictive behavior.
