Healing & Recovery
Intimate Solutions & Sexual Addiction Counseling
Intimate Solutions is a broad term we use to describe our work of helping couples work toward and ultimately achieve “Oneness.” Methods and therapies for Intimate Solutions are integrated into the counseling and therapy we provide for individuals and couples who are undergoing Couples Sexual Recovery, Addiction Recovery, Partner Recovery, as well as Couples Therapy & Counseling.
Couples Sexual Recovery
Each partnership that seeks Couples Sexual Recovery therapy has its own unique place of struggle, pain, heartache and wounded-ness. To honor a couple’s unique situation, we do not provide a “cookie cutter” treatment plan that fits every couple. However, we do base each treatment plan on 9 vital and proven foundational pieces that facilitate healing.
Sexual Addict Individual Recovery
At times, it is wise for the addict and spouse to participate in individual therapy. This could be to address individually the struggles of the current situation and to explore thoughts and feelings that could be hurtful to share with the partner.
In individual therapy, the person can freely express feelings such as anger, devastation, hopelessness, grief and ambivalence. These private sessions are also helpful to explore past traumas from your individual life history that contribute to the current pain. Sometimes, individual therapy allows you to explore your options, including the pros and cons of staying in the marriage or leaving it.

Partners Of Addicts: Why Recovery Is Needed
Many partners of addicts ask: “I’m not the one who betrayed and broke our covenant. I’m not the one who screwed up and broke promises. Why should I have to be in recovery?” Why? Because YOU are worth it! You are worth recovering. Much of who you are, were, and all that you hoped and dreamed for may feel lost, damaged or destroyed. All of this is worth recovering and restoring. Allow a place in your heart for this idea to be planted. God made you an amazing person with vast potential and you may not feel that way lately. It’s time to reclaim that sense of worth that belongs to you.
As the partner of a person with a sexual addiction or Intimacy Anorexia, to feel imposed upon by the recovery process is understandable and something you will need to work through in order to heal. Whether you are just now discovering the problem or you’ve been aware of it for years or decades – with or without a name for it – you are likely to be experiencing a whole host of feelings, including sorrow, anger, despair, pride, fear, abandoned, isolated.

Consider A Couples Workshop
For people considering private counseling or undergoing counseling, we recommend attending The Art and Science of Love, a couples workshop created by world-renown The Gottman Institute. Why?
The workshop introduces both partners to concepts and terms that will be used in psychotherapy sessions.
The workshop helps maintain and continue the progress made in counseling.
People in private counseling need support from a strong relationship with their partners. The couples workshop has been proven to assist in healing and recovery.
