Welcome. I am honored to join you in prioritizing your well-being. Therapy is a life hack, in a way; such that any of us can make use of it when difficult circumstances arise or we find ourselves stuck or in crisis. The work we do is a process, and yours will be unique to you. Initial interventions will aim to increase your sense of internal safety, reduce distress and highlight your innate strengths. Our work will help clarify immediate needs and pressing symptoms. Part exploration, part creation, therapy is a process of joining, rebuilding, finding growth and hope. We start where you are, in the here and now!

Sometimes your usual ways of coping with stress and difficult situations stop working. This can leave you feeling ill-equipped to manage aspects of your life. As a result, you may be feeling sad, worried, scared, angry, and/or overwhelmed. I strive to help people better understand the nature of their problems and develop more effective ways to cope with them. I believe greater self-awareness, in combination with behavior changes, can lead to a richer and more satisfying life.

Hi, my name is Kathleen Dwyer Blair (LCSW, BCD). As the Clinical Director of Nassau Guidance & Counseling Centers and a practicing psychotherapist for the past 28 years, I know that life can sometimes be overwhelming and painful - so much so, that you feel "stuck" wondering if sustainable change is simply impossible. You may be coping with issues such as unhealthy relationships; parenting conflicts; financial stresses; difficult transitions; depression or anxiety; or old fears. If so, you're not alone... and I hope you'll choose to make lasting changes through collaborative, nonjudgmental therapy. But finding the right therapist - one who specializes in the appropriate discipline, works with your insurance company, and has impeccable credentials - is challenging. That's why we have over 35 therapists throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties and match our clients to the most appropriate therapist based on their needs.

Sexual Addiction Therapists

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.
