  • Conflict management skills
  • Communication skills
  • Building trust and connectedness
  • Foundations of friendship

Sex and Porn Addiction

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

If you answered "Yes" to 3 or more of these questions it is recommended that you seek further assessment for sex or porn addiction.

To get an even more accurate assessment of the possibility of sex addiction take the free, confidential Sexual Addiction Screening Test (SAST) here. Our highly trained CSAT therapists can gently guide you through the process of assessment and, if necessary, recommend a treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

Our JUMPSTART TO HEALING (TM) program can provide results quickly and efficiently to assess and treat compulsive sexual behaviors. Help is available!

Partners need support too. Call for experienced help!

For Partners

The discovery or disclosure of an affair, the use of porn, or other problematic sexual behavior is traumatic for the partner. Often, everything the partner thought he or she could count on in the relationship has been shattered. 

Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSAT) training includes knowledge about how to help those whose partners have struggled with sex or porn addiction, infidelity, or other aspects of relational trauma. We can help. Don't suffer alone. 

Our JUMPSTART TO HEALING (TM) For Partners is designed to help you understand what has happened, why you are feeling what you are feeling, and how to move forward in the healthiest way possible. One, two, and three day options are available. 


For Adolescents

The average age for first exposure to Internet pornography is eleven.  Therapists at Counseling Alliance LLC have the ability to provide age appropriate support to those pre-teen through young-adult individuals who have struggles with appropriate Internet behavior. 

Gaming and Internet addiction is another common problem for adolescents. Our therapists can help. 

 

There is a reason pornography is called "adult." Young minds simply are not equipped to handle such material. We can help!


 

Counseling Alliance therapists have advanced training in well-researched approaches to help manage the impact of abuse and trauma. Let us help you become free from the pain of the past!

For Trauma and Abuse

Trauma is a strong word. However, even the small the hurts of life take a toll when repeated. Unfortunately, some experience hurts that are anything but small. 

Today therapists think of trauma in terms of big "T" trauma and small "t" trauma. Big "T" traumatic events are typically the more rare events that occur in a person's life. This may be an assault, an auto accident, or some other event that was powerful and potentially life threatening, but not the everyday occurrence. Small "t" trauma is the ongoing verbal, emotional, or spiritual abuse that occurred on a regular basis. 

We now realize that trauma of either type has a profound impact upon an individual's development, daily living, and even shapes the way the brain functions. 

Therapists at Counseling Alliance have advanced training in working with trauma. We have therapists trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) that is an evidence-treatment therapy for trauma as well as many other issues. We also have therapists who are trained in Developmental and Relational Trauma (DART). 

We can help. If you struggle with issues from your past please know that help is avialble. Call today for an appointment to discuss treatment options. 

 

For Alcohol and Substance Abuse

We have therapists on staff with training, experience, and credentials to help assess and begin a treatment program for you or a loved one. Help can be provided in multiple options include:

  • The traditional 50-minute therapy session
  • Extended sessions, (multiple hours 2- 8).
  • JUMPSTARTS TO HEALING (TM) 1, 2, or 3 day Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
