Does your partner use pornography, have affairs,
see prostitutes, or participate in other sexual addictions?
If so, you are not alone.
You may be asking...
Can there be healing?
Can you keep the marriage/relationship together?
Can you trust again?
You get to decide how you will continue! You get to decide to make a commitment to change and how you will get help and support – all for you, not others.
Part of the help you can obtain is learning to set boundaries in your relationship if your partner is struggling with pornography or other related sex addictions. Sex addicts often justify their behavior by believing that it is something “that everyone does” and “no one is getting hurt”. Many addicts are unaware of the ripple of destruction their behavior causes, and many are aware and still unable to manage the addiction.
Information you need, even if your partner never gets help…
If you have taken the time to search out this site, there is a good chance you have felt at one time or another shame, guilt, abandonment, anger, and sorrow.
I encourage a spouse or partner to come to his/her own therapy whether or not the sex addict is ready to start his own recovery. It is important for you to get support and clarity for yourself. You can learn about sexual addiction and how it affects you and your family, you can decrease the isolation you feel and learn that you do not have to be ashamed because of the actions of your partner or even your own actions. I am committed to making counseling safe and non-judgmental that will allow you to calm the chaos and sort out your situation to provide you with options.
I want to help people begin (or continue) their journey to find their way through difficult times. I offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation to ensure that you are comfortable with my style and I am the best therapist for you. This is time to discuss briefly scheduling, fees, and how I can help.
