Sexually compulsive behaviors such as sex addiction, love addiction and porn addiction.
Sexual dysfunction can be both physical and emotional issues relating to sex and intimacy.
Relationship issues include mismatched desire, intimacy issues, trust issues, and more.
Center for Healthy Sex provides in-person and telehealth services for those concerned with sexual health issues. If you’re struggling with issues of sexual desire or dysfunction, have questions about your sexual health, have been betrayed in your primary relationship, or are struggling with compulsive sexual behavior, we’re here to help.
Center for Healthy Sex provides conjoint therapy for all relationship configurations including those in alternative relationships where all members of the relationship are welcome. Couple therapy is often needed when communication breaks down in the system. If you are struggling with having constructive conversations that block intimacy and sexuality, we offer in-person therapy as well as telehealth services for your relational needs.
Coaching classes are 12-week, pre-planned coaching sessions designed around a specific treatment plan. The purpose of coaching is to help you better understand the nature of your problem and to give you concrete assignments that serve to assist you in making immediate changes to your situation. Center for Healthy Sex provides coaching for early and later stage recovery from sex addiction/compulsivity, porn addiction, love addiction, sexual dysfunction, and healthy sexuality. An intake counselor will assist you in determining which one of our courses will best serve your needs.
Center for Healthy Sex offers several weekly recovery groups for men and women, focusing on sex addiction, love addiction, and porn addiction. These groups rely on the power of peer experience and peer support to create a strong foundation for recovery.
- Understand addiction and break through the obstacles that prevent recovery
- Stop destructive sexual patterns such as chronic infidelity or excessive use of pornography
- Learn recovery practices that have helped thousands of sex addicts get and stay “sober”
- Build a support network so you’re not alone in your struggles
*Groups are limited to 7 participants due to the intense nature of this therapeutic work.
