Intimacy and Couples Issues
In addition to providing counseling to a wide range of marital/couples issues, at Wings of Change of Forsyth, therapists work with sexual addiction as a problem of intimacy.
“Acting-out” sexually becomes a way to seek intimacy without being emotionally close. A pornographic image on a screen or a prostitute is not a place where emotional intimacy is required. At Wings of Change of Forsyth we treat both the addiction and the underlying intimacy problem. We know that for spouses or partners of sex addicts, this pattern is confusing and devastating.
Our approach to marital and couples therapy takes into account the unique challenges that are faced by the couple impacted by sexual addiction. We are specifically trained to address the conflict resulting from disclosure of sexual secrets, the repairing of damaged trust, and the isolation due to sexual shame. We strive to assist couples to regain trust and establish healthy intimacy.
