Sex Addiction - There is Hope

If you are struggling with sex addiction or sexual compulsions, it can feel like something beyond all possible control. The impact on relationships, goals, and self worth can seem beyond salvation. But there is hope

As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), I specialize in enhancing relationships and helping couples who are struggling with sexual addiction and the associated challenges to emotional and sexual well being.

To better understand whether you might be dealing with sexual addiction, the following questionnaire (called "PATHOS") can help you to make a self-assessment to determine whether you would benefit from addiction therapy:

  1. Do you often find yourself preoccupied with sexual thoughts? (Preoccupied)
  2. Do you hide some of your sexual behavior from others? (Ashamed)
  3. Have you ever sought help for sexual behavior you did not like? (Treatment)
  4. Has anyone been hurt emotionally because of your sexual behavior? (Hurt others)
  5. Do you feel controlled by your sexual desire? (Out of control)
  6. When you have sex, do you feel depressed aferwards? (Sad)

If three or more of these questions describe you, help is available.
