Porn & Sex Addiction Counseling

Escape the cycle of addiction to restore trust and healthy intimacy in your life.

Porn Addiction

Porn used to be a fun escape from reality. A little harmless fantasy, right? 

But now it’s impacting your life. Your relationship. You feel more critical of your spouse, and less satisfied with your sex life, which has you turning to porn more and more often, only increasing your guilt and shame. 

Sex Addiction

Has sex become a game to you? A conquest? Maybe you’re turning to sex to avoid dealing with difficult emotions.

It feels like you’ve lost control of your body and your sex life entirely. Like you can’t live without it. 

Are you keeping your addiction a secret from your spouse or your family, living in fear of being discovered?


It’s easy to go from hiding a secret to hiding from those you love. 

Maybe your spouse knows about the addiction, and you are both in the turmoil of trying to figure out how you got to this place and where to go for help. 

Or perhaps you are a young adult who is battling an addiction alone.

No matter where you are in the addiction cycle, there is hope, even if you’re feeling stuck and broken by an addiction that feels unbeatable. Help is available.

At OnlyYouForever, we help individuals, couples, and families break the cycle of addiction, providing help and support as we guide you through a healing journey to recover from the shame, guilt, and negative self-esteem surrounding your addiction. 

Our Reliable 5-Step Process

  1. Assess the addiction: We'll begin with a thorough history of the addiction, look at co-occurring addictions, and examine your family history for patterns of addiction.
  2. Establish Gaurdrails: We'll help you set up barriers to acting out again to create a safety net against slips and relapses
  3. Identify the Chain: You will work with your therapist to detail out the steps you take toward porn or sexual behaviors so that you learn how to intervene on yourself and redirect towards healthy choices.
  4. Examine Fantasies: Learn the deeper meaning behind the fantasies you are drawn to. This work reveals the roots of the addiction: the parts most in need of healing so that you can bring yourself to your marriage or family relationships as a loyal, committed person.
  5. Healthy Intimacy: Heal attachment wounds and disorders so that you can build healthy, authentic and wholesome connections with the people that matter most to you, including making amends where necessary.

With decades of collective experience, there isn't much our team of qualified therapists have not seen. We also stay up-to-date on research and best practices through continuing education and ongoing research for our marriage podcast (currently over 1.7 million downloads!).

I use a direct approach to get to the heart of the issues or core problems and pain points so we can work together to find the best possible solutions. I use an integrative approach and believe there are a variety of ways to “do therapy” and its best to work together to find what’s best for you. Do you want immediate action steps or will it take you more time to warm up to the process? Either way, you are in the driver’s seat. My role is to walk with you and encourage you or challenge you in a way that will help you grow.

I work with clients struggling with pornography and sex addiction. I draw upon my training as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and my experience as an addictions counselor at a premier addictions treatment clinic in Vancouver. Working with you would allow us to target the underlying issues and the root causes of these behaviors to provide a plan for you to move forward and be free.
