Treatment for Problematic Sexual Behavior
A holistic approach to change
Individuals may seek specialized treatment for difficulties with sexual behavior, for example:
Sexual Addiction/Compulsive Sexual Behavior
Pornography/Internet Pornography Addiction
We offer a Comprehensive approach.
Individuals seeking treatment for problematic sexual behavior will begin by participating in a thorough intake assessment. We will document familial history, sexual development, and history of the problematic behaviors. Contact with collateral supports will be made when possible to provide supplemental information. Additionally, cognitive screening, personality assessments, actuarial and dynamic risk measures, and screening for sexual deviance may be part of the intake process in order to determine the individual's strengths and weaknesses before tailoring a treatment plan to address the relevant clinical issues. Depending on the particular situation, additional measures and assessments may be recommended.
After completing the intake process, clients will begin individual treatment. We offer the ability to meet in person and/or remotely through a confidential web-portal. The web-portal component also provides a means for clients to have brief contact and support with providers in between sessions. Treatment will also include psychoeducational classes. When possible and where indicated, group treatment may also be recommended.
Learning to Manage Sexually Problematic Behaviors Through Mindfulness and Meditation
This is a 12-week, FREE mindfulness class for the purposes of a qualitative study on the benefits of using mindfulness and meditation for the management of problematic sexual behavior. Participants will be asked to participate in an interview and answer survey questions at the beginning, midway, and at the end of the sessions. All information obtained for the study will be kept confidential. The class will involve teaching and practice, so please dress comfortably. Registration for the group will end January 1, 2018 and sessions will begin January 29, 2018.
Individuals seeking to participate in sex offender treatment may choose to pay privately for services or they may be able to use an insurance plan. Please note that not all aspects of the treatment program may be covered through insurance. Some insurance plans offer reimbursement for all or part of the fees for counseling and/or psychotherapy. Please check with your individual insurance company to determine eligibility or benefits. Or you can contact our offices to discuss your particular situation or for more information.
