Pornography Addictions and Compulsive Sexual Behaviors

Pornography Addiction and Compulsive Sexual Behaviors

Individuals who struggle to stop viewing pornography often feel powerless and hopeless over their efforts to quit.  Partners of those who struggle feel betrayed, confused, and anxious about the pornography use.
Sometimes individuals have problematic sexual behaviors that go beyond pornography, including affairs, prostitutes/escorts, strip clubs, voyeurism, and masturbation.
Getting help for problematic sexual behavior takes courage.  I have specialized training in assisting those who struggle with pornography and sexually problematic behaviors.  I can help you stop the self-defeating patterns that threaten your emotional, spiritual, physical, and relational health.
Consider the following questions:

  • Do you keep secrets about your sexual activities from people who are most important to you?
  • Do you lead a double-life regarding some aspects of your sexual behavior?
  • Do you become sexual in ways you later regret?
  • Do you find yourself seeking more intense or frequent sexual activity despite not wanting to?
  • Does your sexual behavior put you at risk for job loss, divorce, church discipline, disease, legal action or other dire consequences?
  • Have you ever broken a sincerely made promise never to repeat a particular sexual behavior?  (Source:  Bill Herring, LCSW

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, contact me and we can talk about your situation and the best way to help you move toward a healthier you.

I also offer the following counseling services for individuals, couples, and families affected by pornography and compulsive sexual behaviors:

The most important thing to do is reach out and open up to someone who can help.
