When you feel all hope is lost, there is STILL hope! Vincent van Gogh said, “There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.” I consider my job to hear and feel with you the great fire of your soul—your struggles, feelings of hopelessness and worry, feeling controlled by your emotions and past trauma, repeating patterns of conflict, battling addiction, or fighting an inner battle that others may not fully understand or appreciate.

My clients have included couples in the early stages of their relationship who are preparing for marriage, those who have been stuck for many years in some negative habits, and those who are seeking help to recover from an affair.

In relationships when great sex (or any intimacy at all) is a distant memory, communication becomes stuck, and a feeling of closeness is longed for again, these become signs that a different approach is needed to end the frustration and renew aliveness. The desire for intimacy, to feel connected, and to matter are key aspects of who we are as human beings.

I enjoy helping couples who are struggling to feel close in their relationship together; their usual goals would be to improve their communication and overall connection. I also support individuals young and old who struggle to manage anxiety, depression, obsessions compulsions, traumas, grief and loss, addictions (I.e., sexual). Their goals often become finding ways to process past hurts and learning how to manage their emotions in healthier ways. With trauma in particular, I find people need support to get past stuck points that make it hard to differentiate the here and now from the trauma incident itself.

At Insight, our intake team will help you to choose the right therapist based on their areas of specialty, personality, availability and therapy methods. Your therapist will work in partnership with you to determine the most effective method of therapy, and depending on your concern, together you’ll come up with a plan that makes sense for you. If you’re a very solution focused problem solver, then you might be happy with a short-term goal for therapy. If you like to talk more and really investigate your problems, then a more traditional therapeutic approach may be the best fit.

Take this moment, right now, and bring to mind a situation where you were met with an obstacle and managed to overcome it. Bring to mind the images you had at the moment you succeeded. Bring to mind what you told yourself and how you felt. Close your eyes and remember. Many of us often forget that we already possess qualities of inner strength; internal resources that, when tapped into, can reveal solutions to our problems and give us fresh perspectives and new insights. I am well-positioned to accompany you along your path and guide you towards a brighter future, so that you thrive even during life’s most difficult moments.

I have had the honor to work in the helping field for more than 12 years. My experience has taught me that whatever someone's concern is for wanting to talk to someone, we are all needing the same thing - relief from emotional pain. Sometimes in that pain we feel hopeless or overwhelmed. Feeling as though we are in a cycle of the same feelings or behaviors that may not be working anymore for us; and that has now created negative consequences in our lives. Whether it is the first time or trying again - knowing that something has to change and needing support is a great place to start to take those steps.

Sexual Addiction Counsellors

When should someone seek treatment for sex addiction?

People should seek treatment for sex addiction if they cannot control their sexual thoughts or behaviours to the point that it disrupts their ability to function in daily life, for example by threatening their finances, career, or relationships. This may include spending an excessive amount of time obsessing over sex, planning sex, watching pornography, or masturbating, as well as consistently engaging in risky sexual activities, using sex to escape distressing feelings, or attempting yet failing to control sexual behavior.

What are the most common treatment options for sex addiction?

Psychotherapy is the most common treatment for sex addiction; therapy helps patients better understand their compulsive thoughts and behaviors and develop strategies to manage their desires. Therapy may be supplemented by medications, such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anti-androgens, and the alcohol and substance use medication Naltrexone, as well as support groups, such as 12-step programs.

How long does therapy take for sex addiction?

Recovering from compulsive behavior takes time and effort. There’s no precise timeline for treatment, but research suggests 12 therapy sessions may be enough to see change. Treatment for sexual compulsions requires honesty in therapy, a commitment to understanding triggers and developing coping skills, and potential lifestyle changes such as cutting out alcohol or drugs.

What if sex addiction is left untreated?

Compulsive sexual behavior can have serious repercussions if left unaddressed. For example, if sexual obsessions consume the vast majority of a person’s time, they may lose their job. If they can’t stop paying for sex, their finances may suffer. If they’re dishonest in their relationships, their partner may leave them. If they consistently feel shame, they may struggle with anxiety, depression, or loneliness. Therapy can help people develop the tools to manage sexual thoughts and behaviors that feel uncontrollable.
