Recovery from Sexual Addiction
Understand the signs of a sexual addiction problem; and the root causes so you can face the problem and overcome it. Have the support and action plan to recover by effectively changing destructive behavior patterns, enacting healthy intimacy and sexuality, and rebuilding trust with others. Grow through that process to have a happier and more satisfying life.
Recovery for the Partner
Get much needed support and learn how to recover from the trauma of finding out your partner has betrayed your trust. Learn how to contain and respond to “emotional flooding” that is painful and overwhelming, as part of a process to regain an overall sense of empowerment and well being, as you struggle with decisions about how to move forward.
Recovery for the Couple
Get support and work through the intense pain, anguish, and despair that overwhelms couples when “sexual acting out” is revealed. The therapy process often rebuilds trust and leads to reconciliation in the marriage or primary relationship, reestablishing a feeling of emotional safety, intimacy and connection.
