Shari Cohn, MSSW, LCSW, SC, CSAT, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Middleton
Pornography, affairs or internet sex controlling your life? Afraid you or your loved one is a sex addict? As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, sex therapist and psychotherapist providing counseling and sex therapy to the Madison Wisconsin area for over twenty years, people often tell me that before therapy with me they had never told anyone the extent of their pain from sexual addiction, abuse, assault or other sexual problems. Shame, hopelessness and embarrassment fed isolation and depression. Clients tell me my respect, compassion and sound clinical strategies build safety and hope as we work together as a recovery team.
Everyone deserves assistance and support. Sex addicts and their partners, abuse - assault survivors and their spouses, people with sexual problems and their loved ones, and individuals not currently in relationships. I provide experienced effective growth and recovery services for individuals and couples struggling with sexual and not specifically sexual problems.
I am a member of the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals; Society For The Advancement of Sexual Health; and American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists. I am EMDR Level 2 Certified. For more information and resources, please visit my website and blog at
