I work with many "sexual addiction" clients.
I believe in client feedback for setting goals and evaluating whether therapy is working for them. It's not my goals or "success rate" that is important but what the client experiences. I value working with clients who know what a 'better life' will look like, will work on getting there, and will provide feedback about progress or resistence. Of course I'm there to provide help when stuck but I value clients to provide their feedback and be engaged in the therapeutic process.

You don’t know where to go for help. This sexual issue is keeping you from being happy and you and/or your partner are depressed and anxious all the time. You think about this all the time. You feel like you don’t know enough about sex and you certainly don’t know how to solve this problem, even though you have tried. No one taught you how to have a healthy and positive sexual identity, so how are you supposed to know how to fix this?

We’ve all had sexual encounters we regret. It’s normal. However, what if you engage in sexual behaviors time after time despite the fact you don’t want to anymore? What if hating yourself for it or hurting someone you love by doing it isn’t convincing enough to refrain? I help those whose love and sex experiences are driven by compulsion and preoccupation rather than spontaneity and freedom. Many might identify as addicts or describe their behavior as out of control. Others call it problematic, while some may not really know what it is. In any case, sex, porn, or intimacy has become an overpowering force in your daily life.

Shame sucks, suffocates, stunts our growth, and kills our creativity. It makes us hide and deny who we are. It keeps us in the shadows hidden by loneliness and isolation. The truth is that each of us has a deep-seated desire to know others and be known by others. "Ubuntu" is a Bantu (South African) word that means "I am because we are," or "In being known by you - I know myself."
