My passion as a Sexual Addiction Therapist comes from a life-long struggle with my sexual addiction . From a very young age, I entered a highly sexualized world, including sexual abuse by five different men from age five to fourteen. All of these men played a significant and trusting role in my life. When I was eleven years old, losing my father to emphysema forced me to grow up overnight into an overcompensating perfectionist. Perfect student, perfect son, and later a perfect member of the United States Air Force created an unsustainable persona.

Are you struggling with thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that are having a negative impact in your life? Has sexual behavior become a source of despair, shame, or relational conflict? Do you find yourself searching to fill a void that cannot be explained? Have you struggled to build emotional intimacy with those close to you and your life is becoming unmanageable? Are memories from your past impacting your life in the present? Acknowledging these truths are difficult and require an experienced clinician who understands the role of trauma in reducing unwanted behaviors. I’m so glad our paths have crossed!

Life can be complicated and overwhelming at times. In response to difficult situations people often lose sight of themselves, which can create internal conflict, leading to external issues. Integrity Counseling and Wellness provides individual, group, and family counseling to help create awareness and understanding of how to get back to 'Me'. Our approach to the internal conflict includes a holistic perspective that brings about a sense of wholeness from the dis-ease of life's challenges. Change can be an uncomfortable and scary process. With the help of professionals that understand the normalcy of crisis situations, the process of healing, growth, and truth is attainable.

Sex addiction or love addiction in marriage is common and inevitably leads to betrayal and hurt. Overcoming and recovery from sexual addiction starts with recognizing that you are out of control.
