Sexual Integrity & Abuse
No other addiction affects your most personal feelings as profoundly as sex addiction. Because of the intense conflicts that accompany it, sexual addiction is also one of the most complex addictions.
Sexuality should be an integral and balanced part of our life experience. However, when sex becomes all consuming, or when we deprive ourselves of healthy sexual expression, our sexuality acts as a barrier filled with shame and self-contempt.
Possible consequences of sex addiction may include:
- Legal Trouble
- Marital or Family Problems
- Mood Problems such as Depression or Anxiety
- Health Problems
- Social Isolation
Some of the possible sex addictions may include:
Healthy sexual behavior, on the other hand, creates intimacy and closeness. It is characterized by trust, respect, joy and safety. At Solid Ground Counseling, we can help you gain control of your sexuality and your life. This can be done through individual counseling, couple’s counseling or group therapy. Solid Ground Counseling is an accepting, confidential and safe place to seek healing.
Sexual dysfunctions are issues that create problems for a couple’s expression and experience of sexuality. They often take the joy and excitement out of sexuality and may even cause an avoidance of sexual experience all together. Unfortunately, they often go untreated because of embarrassment, shame or lack of understanding. Solid Ground Counseling is not a medical facility, so we are unable to provide physical exams or prescribe medications. However, we are able to treat the psychological causes or issues associated with sexual dysfunctions. We are able to work with individuals as well as their partners.
