This is a strong are of specialization for our clinic. Addiction is becoming one of the number one issues of this country. There is often a genetic potential and can be greatly influenced by early development in dysfunctional families. Addiction is often a coping mechanism to deal with mental health or other issues. Any coping mechanism that is taken to the point where it becomes a problem (out of control), can become a problem, including alcohol, substances, gambling, food, anger, and sex.

Do you find yourself preoccupied and out-of-control with your sexual thoughts and desires? Do you hide or feel shame as a result of your sexual behaviors? Have you been hurt or hurt others as a result of your sexual behaviors? If yes, you may be struggling with a sex or love addiction. The goal of recovery treatment is to set a foundation for healing from betrayal, shame, lack of intimacy and the destructive behaviors of sex and love addiction.

"Sexual addiction" (Out of Control Sexual Behavior) is a common thing many people struggle with in their lives. It can feel that their attractions, behaviors, thoughts, satisfaction levels, and/or relationships revolve around their sexuality, often causing struggles within important relationships(i.e., primary committed relationship) or aspects (i.e., job) of their lives. Working with my clients thru a sex-positive lens we process what ways a person can honor their sexuality without causing harm or stress to those around them, in their life or on different aspects within it.

Do you control it, or does it control you? This is the question I ask when investigating addiction. I am a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) Candidate. I have had special training in the treatment of sexual addiction, including addiction to pornography. The severity of some sexual addictions is better treated in a treatment program, but often it is something that you can gain control of in a setting such as ours. I can also serve as a resource after treatment. I do in-office and online counseling. You can self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com.

At Center for Mental Health and Wellness we provide counseling for individuals who have recovered from addiction and substance use issues. Often mental health issues may surface once substance use has ceased. Thus, individual therapy can be a helpful way to work on some of those underlying concerns. Working with a therapist after recovery from addiction can reduce the likelihood of relapse.
