Sex Addiction Coaching
Sex Addiction Therapy and Sex Addiction Coaching can be difficult to find as it relates to addiction and mental health. The stigma around sex addiction, porn addiction, masturbation, hiring escorts and strippers is what most people talk about. Sex addiction is so much more, from intimacy issues to partner betrayal trauma, and it can cross over into additional substances like alcohol and cocaine as well.
At The Addictions Coach, we can offer you sex addiction help without having to go to a sexual addiction treatment center and spend 6 months learning impulse control and behavior modification. Our sex addiction therapy can be done via Zoom or phone to keep your privacy. We work with both the sex addict and the partner of the sex addict to get to the root cause of the issues and offer proven solutions and techniques that curb sexual addiction issues in the family unit.
Sex addiction is a process addiction that has to do with a shortage of dopamine in the brain chemically. The need for a ‘release’ of this chemical is what causes the sexual compulsions and drives. We treat both sides of the coin, the chemical and the emotional. Dr. Cali Estes and her team of certified sex addiction coaches and therapists have helped thousands of people just like you.
