Psychosexual Evaluation

The evaluation process establishes a foundation to develop a treatment plan and appropriate treatment goals. We utilize a comprehensive approach to risk assessment and evaluation. Our approach is grounded in the latest research as well as legal and ethical standards. We have the ability to incorporate specialized testing instruments such as the Monarch 21 Penile Plethysmograph, The Abel Assessment of Sexual Interest, and polygraph evaluations. The service is intended  for individuals that may be required to participate in a psychosexual evaluation due to legal problems or other life circumstances. Others may be concerned about sexual thoughts and behaviors that are creating difficulties in their lives and may be escalating to the degree of causing irreversible life consequences. We are here to help! If you are interested in more information regarding consultation please click here for referral instructions.

Treatment for Sexually Addictive Behaviors

Some people use sex to medicate their feelings and/or cope with stress much in the same way as others would use alcohol or drugs. Lack of sexual self-control can manifest in the form of excessive use of porn sites, phone sex, sexting, sexual related chat, and strip bars; it can lead to multiple infidelities, risky sexual behavior, bankruptcy, harm to those in your life, self-harm, or the loss of a job due to out of control behaviors. Rooted in factors such as shame and low self-esteem, there is little satisfaction gained from the sexual activities and rarely an interest in intimacy or emotional connection. Treatment allows individuals to address the lack of sexual self-control where their behavior is interfering with their relationship, job, and reputation. Treatment involves teaching relapse prevention methods, increasing motivation to change, addressing underlying issues such as cognitive distortions (the need for immediate gratification, deviant sexual fantasizing) and developing healthy emotional and sexual intimacy.
