Does your husband or boyfriend need help overcoming pornography or other sex addictions? If so, you are in good company. Porn revenue is larger than all combined revenues of all professional football, baseball, and basketball franchises. US porn revenue exceeds the combined revenues of ABC, CBS, & NBC (6.2 billion). Our center has therapists that specialize in spouses of sex addict counseling.
You have already taken the first steps by recognizing the porn addiction and learning more about its cause and effect. Can there be healing? Can you keep the marriage/relationship together? Absolutely. Is there a lot of work to be done? Absolutely.
First, make a commitment to change. If you continue to do what you did yesterday, you will get yesterday’s results.
Decide how you will get help and support.
Our counselors provide a safe place to share your pain, shock, and grief over the discovery that your spouse or partner has betrayed you. They can teach you to set boundaries in your relationship if your partner is struggling with porn or other related sex addiction. Sex addicts often believe that it is something “that everyone does” and “no one is getting hurt”. Most of them are unaware of the trail of devastation they leave behind.
If you have taken the time to locate this site, there is a good chance you have felt at one time or another shame, guilt, abandonment, anger, and sorrow. You may have originally responded that this is your partner’s issue and not yours and therefore, you don’t need to seek counseling. Yet, you also haven’t found the confidence to turn to friends for understanding, assistance or solace.
We encourage the spouse or partner to come to her own therapy whether or not the sex addict is ready to start his own recovery. It is important for you to get support and clarity for yourself. You can learn about sexual addiction and how it effects you and your family, you can decrease the isolation you feel and learn that you do not have to be ashamed because of the actions of your partner or even your own actions. We ensure that your counseling will be in a safe non-judgemental environment that will allow you to still the caos and sort out your situation and provide you with options.
We are here to provide you the support and understanding you need. Make an appointment today to speak with one of our counselors that have received specialized training for the partners and families of sex addicts. Contact us either via phone (303-933-5800) or through our web-contact form.
