Sexual addiction/Pornography Addiction
Men and women may find themselves trapped in compulsive sexual behaviors that they can not stop. If you are dealing with an escalating obsessive preoccupation with sexual behaviors or fantasies; you’ve tried to stop your involvement with pornography, hookup apps, strip clubs, cybersex, prostitution, or similar behaviors; or you’re experiencing negative consequences due to the out-of-control behaviors we are here to give you a specialized treatment plan. Sexual addiction is a complex intimacy disorder. Trauma and shame are core underlying issues of sexual addiction. You will find this a safe place, to be honest, understood, break free of the bondage of these compulsions, and begin to realize healthy intimacy and connection. It is important to be assessed and treated by a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT).

Finding the authentic, God-mage “you” is worth the journey
Sometimes marriages erupt in crisis and sometimes they slowly erode into distant, meaningless disappointment. No matter the extent of struggle or brokenness, at Charis Counseling Center, we work to bring healing and restoration through sound psychological therapies and biblical principles. Our primary model of counseling is Emotionally Focused Therapy. Based on over twenty years of research, this model has been called a “theory of love.”. It teaches couples how to have safe emotional conversations and build a secure attachment to each other. In sessions, you will understand how you and your partner have developed ‘a dance of relating”. Through guided conversations with the counselor, you will experience a transformation in how to connect with each other and ways of communicating honestly and effectively. Couples will finally know the mystery of creating and maintaining intimacy in emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical ways. A recent large analysis of the best studies available showed that when using Emotionally Focused Therapy for counseling, 70-73% of the couples recovered from marital distress, and 90% were significantly improved.
