Pornography Addiction Treatment

Pornography Addiction Treatment

internet-porn-addictionThis is an area in sex addiction that has become huge in our society. It has been said that the average age for someone to have their first experience looking at pornography is age 11. Sex sites on the web are the number one type of site that get hit each day. It is no wonder that pornography addiction is so high.

Patrick Carnes describes in his book “Out of the Shadows” that sex addiction is the next Tsunami; he had no idea what the effect of online pornography would have today! This has caused many people a great deal of shame and inability to stop, despite many efforts to stop on their own.
Pornography addiction can take other forms (video, magazines) but online pornography has become one of the first places people start experimenting with pornography.

My goal for each patient is individual depending on what kind of pornography they are acting out with. I individualize each person’s plan and help them get reacquainted with computers (if that is their main source of pornography) and learn a healthy respect for using a computer. I also encourage software to put on the computer and/or an accountability partner. I offer individual, group, couples and marital counseling.


As a certified sex addiction therapist, I help people understand addiction as a disease rather than a moral issue.   I help the addict see that they didn’t choose to become an addict, that addiction is like any other disease.  I educate about sex addiction and multiple addictions.  I treat both the addicted and the spouses, families and friends of the addicted, and treat both from a place of complete empathy, compassion and non-judgement.
