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, spirituality, overall emotional well being, and other aspects of life. I also work with individuals who have had affairs and are experiencing the shame that often results from breaking a relationship boundary. Struggles involving sexual behaviors can involve a great deal of pain and negative view of self. If this is your experience, finding a professional who can provide a safe and non-judgemental space is crucial.

My approach to therapy 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 explore the underlying driver of compulsive behaviors, develop deeper intimacy in relationships, and find ways to heal wounded relationships.

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 relationships that are better than they could have imagined. Through various methods (including EMDR) we also help clients heal from trauma and other psychological wounds.

Chris Adams's Groups

Female Relationship and Intimacy Group

Women who struggle with compulsive relationship or sexual behaviors (or both) often experience difficulty in finding groups in which they feel safe and understood. Yet group is one of the most crucial parts of recovery from problems developing healthy and securely attached relationships. If you have had experience with relationship problems due to being in an affair, compulsive pornography use, multiple sexual partners that put your physical and emotional health at risk, anxious relationship behaviors (e.g., overtexting), attraction to unavailable partners, or love avoidance; this group will provide support and accountability to help you work through these intimacy challenges.
