The Types of Counseling Services I Provide

"I came to Bill for help with an addiction to porn.  He was always kind, never judgmental, and seemed to always know just what to ask or say.  As we slowly peeled back the onion I came to see myself in a much healthier light.  I haven't looked at porn in almost a year and my marriage is stronger than it has ever been.  BIll was a blessing in my life."

Individual Counseling

One of my main services is individual counseling.  My typical client is a man who has engaged in a pattern of sexual behavior that conflicts with his commitments, his values or his self-control.  Often this involves physical contact with others, although about a quarter of my clients struggle only with online pornography. 

I help people make sense of their behavior and develop the tools and skills to improve their lives and heal their relationships.  I want people to stop destructive sexual behavior and heal the pain it has brought to themselves and others.  From first encounter I'll provide support, information, guidance and direction as well as the infinite benefit of an actively listening ear.  Together we'll assess what's going on in your life and develop action plans to get you where you want to go.

I also counsel spouses and other partners who are often suffering the many painful consequences of discovering deep sexual deceit.  I say to partners that even though you didnt cause this situation you need and deserve the support of a counselor who understands chronic betrayal trauma. 

If you are ready to book a time to meet and talk individually about what is going in your life and what to do about it, contact me for a prompt reply.

Marital and Relationship Counseling

I also provide marital and couples counseling to help relationships find hope and establish a plan of action in the aftermath of chronic sexual deception.  I have guided many couples through formal disclosures, a process that is often essential to re-establish integrity, trust and responsibility.  There are typical stages to healing from complex betrayal trauma and I can help with them all.

Group Therapy for Men

I also run half a dozen men's therapy groups, which is an entire discussion unto itself.  Openings in these groups are infrequent and all of my group clients come from my established caseload, meaning that nobody comes into one of my groups 'off the street'.

Although I can perform all of these components of professional service at a consistently high level of competence, I rarely engage in all of them with the same client.  I regularly collaborate with other helping professionals around Atlanta.  Many people can be affected by the damages caused by sex addiction and other forms of problematic sexual behavior, and insuring the best healing for everyone involved generally benefits from the skills of more than one therapist, especially with the kinds of complex cases that make up the bulk of my practice.
