Announcement icon I am currently offering in-person, video and telephone sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The focus of my work is helping men and women who are struggling with compulsive sexual and relationship behaviors (also known as sex, porn or love addiction) that have had negative impacts on a person's relationships, overall emotional well being, health, family, career and other aspects of life. Struggles with sexuality can involve a great deal of pain, guilt and shame. If this is your experience, finding a professional who can provide a safe and non-judgemental space is crucial. In addition, I work with individuals who experience difficulties creating and maintaining intimate connections in relationships.
My approach involves working from a sex positive focus, which helps individuals explore healthy sexuality as opposed to pathologizing or shaming their sexual behaviors. I help clients by exploring the underlying parts of Self that are driving compulsive behaviors, developing deeper connection in relationships, and finding ways to heal relationship wounds.
Our practice offers individual, group, and couples counseling. With our combined experience and compassion, we have helped numerous individuals, partners, and couples heal and experience intimate relationships. Through various methods (including EMDR & Internal Family systems) we also help clients heal from trauma and other emotional wounds.

Chris Adams's Groups

Men's Recovery Group

Talk to anyone who has had long term success in recovery from compulsive sexual behaviors, and they will likely tell you that group counseling has been one of the most important aspects of their success. Our group recovery groups typically consist of 5-7 guys who are all dealing with some form of compulsive sexual behavior. Although the behaviors may differ, guys who have been in groups have found that they struggle with some of the same things, including difficulty with intimacy and connection. My Tuesday night group currently has a few spots open. Please contact me for more information.
