The sexual relationship is a beautiful part of our existence. Although all of us are created as sexual beings, not everyone experiences the joy and fulfillment that comes with having a healthy sexual relationship. Sometimes this is by choice, but other times this is due to destructive patterns of sexual behavior. Sometimes sex and sexual activity are used to cope with the trials, tribulations, and pressures of everyday life. These coping mechanisms may manifest in the form of viewing internet pornography, random sexual encounters, and many other sexual experiences. Acts of sexual compulsion can often lead to addiction. This addiction, like many others, has been known to destroy lives. Sex addicts have lost marriages and families, jobs and careers, personal health, and in some cases, their own lives.
I have a passion for helping individuals, couples, and families overcome the often devastating effects of sexual addiction and impulsivity. Trained by some of the leading clinicians and researchers in the field of sexual addiction and compulsion, I am credentialed as Certified Sex Addiction Therapist. I work very closely with my colleagues at Family Solutions Counseling. Feel free to contact me to hear more about our team approach in tackling this issue.
If you, your spouse, or someone else you know is struggling with sexual addiction or impulsivity, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment in order to take back control of your life.
If you are interested in taking the online assessment known as the Sexual Dependence Inventory (SDI), which serves as a tool to help you come to a better understanding of you struggle with sexual addictions or compulsions, please contact me for more information.
Sexual Addictions & Impulsivity Therapy Group (now forming)
Who can join the group? You are welcomed to be a part of this group if you are someone who struggle with sexual compulsions and/or addition and are:
- Ready to start your recovery.
- Early in your recovery process and looking for a group to join.
- Looking for a group to help enhance and intensify your existing treatment.
Note: Males and females alike are welcomed, but will not participate in group together. A group must consist of a minimum of 3 participants of the same sex.
Where will the group take place? The group will take place at an undisclosed location on the north side of Oklahoma City. Participants will be informed of the exact location when they come to their initial intake interview.
When and what time does group begin? Please contact me to inquire of the start date and time of the next group. There will be a total of 12 sessions. Please inquire about the scheduling of each session.
How much does it cost to participate? The total cost of group is $60.00 per session, which is less than cost of individual therapy (note: $100.00 charge if registration takes place 7 days or less from the intake session). Payment is due in the form of cash or credit card at the initial intake session. Payment is non-refundable 2 weeks prior to group. If a refund is requested, your therapist will make adjustments based on time and resources already spent. Group participants will be required to purchase the book "Facing the Shadows" by Patrick Carnes.
What about paperwork? Before your initial intake and assessment interview, you will also need to print out, read, fill out, and sign the attached documents below.
If you are interested in jumpstarting your recovery, please call me at 405.234.7209 as I would be happy to register you as a group participant and/or answer any questions that are on your mind.
