Sex and Pornography Addictions

Many people that struggle with various sexual dysfunctions (i.e., erectile dysfunction) struggle with underlying sex addictions. Sex and pornography addictions are complicated process addictions; they come in many forms and have many origins. Some are cross addictions with other substances like alcohol, cocaine and marijuana. Much like a food addict must learn to have a healthy relationship to food and eating once he or she is in recovery, so too does someone with a sex addiction need to learn to have a healthy relationship to sex and sexuality. Most all addictions are coping mechanisms people use to try to escape discomfort, pain or trauma. Your therapist will not only help you on your road to sobriety but they will help you get to the root of the underlying pain or trauma so that you can heal the origins and not simply band-aid the unwanted behaviors. Your therapist understands the shame that sexual addictions often bring up for our clients. She will take a caring, compassionate stance while working from evidence-based training to help you achieve the change you desire. We will help you stop living a double life and attain true recovery; not merely sobriety or abstinence.
