Sexual addiction has been labeled as the greatest threat to North American churches. Sexual addiction takes many forms--pornography, prostitution, voyeurism, exhibitionism, as well as many others. Left untreated, sexual addiction always gets worse. While there are many roads that lead to sexual addiction, there is but one that leads to healing. Using the timeless truth of God's Word as well as modern evidence-based treatments, I will teach you how to break free from the power of sexual addiction and discover the abundant life that God has for you.

Esther McDonough, Registered Clinical Social Worker

When working with addictions, it is vital to meet people where they are at in their treatment. To be “REAL” is the path to success. Ambivalence must be examined and dealt with. Mapping the person priorities in life will shine a light on and highlight what really is important to the individual. Recognizing stimulus and avoiding them are also effective techniques. Measuring success daily and unpacking events can alleviate some of the internal struggles of addictions. In working with addictions it is important to remember the mind is actually being highjack by the substance.

Addiction Counselor

Ruth Gordon, MA/MSW/LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

The OC Building, 11983 Tamiami Trail, N., Naples, FL 34110, Naples, Florida 34110 | 239 293-4314

I try to help my clients find the internal button that will allow them to give up their dependency and have confidence in themselves. If addictions didn't bite up back they wouldn't be a problem. But, they always land us in more trouble than we originally had. If the client is open to 12 step I encourage that. If not, we can work without it. The goal is to minimize shame and maximize self-confidence.

My specialty in a world of addictions is a sexual addiction. In 2006 – 2009 I conducted research on cybersex addiction that was later published as a student book. I apply Dr. Patrick Carnes approach to a treatment and recovery from sexual addiction. I guide clients to understand the anatomy of their addiction and through stages of recovery. I navigate clients to explore and discover their perception and experience of intimacy and how to apply it successfully in their relationships. I have also extensive experience working with partners of sex addicts. Moreover, I work frequently with clients who are recovering from any kind of substance abuse addiction and maintaining sobriety.
