Individual Therapy for Sex Addicts
We offer individual therapy for sexually addicted clients on a 50-minute or 75-minute basis. Therapy appointments are offered weekly or as indicated by your therapist. Your therapist will help you develop an individualized treatment plan specific to your needs and personal goals. Initially, therapy focuses on stopping your addictive behavior and developing a structured recovery plan. As your therapy progresses, your therapist will help you explore and resolve your own unique deeper issues to help you build a sustainable and balanced life.
