What are the different types of intimacy disorders?

Intimacy Disorders present in many different ways and with many different names:

  • Love Addiction

  • Relationship Addiction

  • Sex Addiction

  • Porn Addiction

  • Severe/Addictive Substance Use

  • Out of Control/Compulsive Masturbation


However, the exact nature is the insecurity and emotional pain that's at the core of the problem.  

The emotional pain comes from the shame, the anger, and the fear of life's disappointments and unfulfilled expectations. The lack of confidence that anyone or anything will meet one's needs can create insecure attachments to others and self.  To cope with the discomfort, one uses people, substances, things, and experiences to manage the uncomfortable feelings of emotional pain and disappointing relationships. 


I have an understanding and a compassion for you. To be caught in the vicious cycle of confusion and chaos of the   life altering consequences of these out of control behaviors. I provide a comprehensive treatment approach that offers support, clarity, and hope. Individual therapy coupled with group therapy lays a foundation of solution and a relief of your pain.
