Counseling & Coaching for Sex Addiction
Sexuality is an important, natural, and healthy aspect of adult life—but for some of us, struggles with sexual desires can get in the way of living a fulfilling day-to-day life.
Sex addiction is an issue that can cause difficulties in relationships and can interfere with important events and personal progress. It can also lead to financial problems, depending on how it manifests (or if it costs you your job).
If you’re concerned about sex addiction and the negative impact it has on your life, it may be time to consider coaching. Here at RISE, our skilled and knowledgeable mental health coaches are ready to support you, as you work to develop skills and strategies to overcome sex addiction.
Treating Sex Addiction: Coaching vs Therapy
Sexuality is complicated! There are a lot of unhealthy ways to experience it—but there are also proven methods for changing your behavior and learning a sex-positive mindset.
Therapy is a rigorously structured and regulated model based on untangling the past to understand and process a diagnosis.
Coaching describes a solution-driven process of training yourself to the behaviors and experiences you want to have—guided by your coach.

Everyone’s experience is different, but the good news is, coaching is highly personalized and custom-built for your goals and needs. And it adapts to your progress, taking into account your shifting needs to offer new skills so you can accomplish whatever it is you’re setting out to change.
