Craig S. Cashwell has been a professional counselor since 1991 and is licensed by the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors. Craig became a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) in 2011 and added the supervisor credential (CSAT-S) in 2013. He has completed the Humanitarian Assistance Program (HAP) training requirements in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for the treatment of trauma. Craig is part-time at Wings of Change as he also has worked as a University Professor since 1994. Currently, Craig teaches in the Department of Counseling and Educational Development at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro where he has been training and supervising counselors-in-training since 2000.
Craig specializes in the treatment of sex and pornography addiction and in couple counseling, including both couples struggling with addiction and those who are not. Craig’s counseling approach to sex and pornography addiction is grounded in a deep interpersonal approach integrated with the task-model developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes. Craig believes that out of control sexual behavior reflects maladaptive coping with trauma and or undesirable emotions, and works to support clients in healing trauma and enhancing their emotional lives, while also developing more adaptive behavioral and cognitive coping strategies.
Craig is the author of over 125 professional papers and three books, including Shadows of the Cross: A Christian Companion to Facing the Shadow, Integrating Spirituality and Religion into Counseling: A Guide to Competent Practice, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling: Elements of Effective Practice.
