Our team of therapists, data scientists, and medical experts came together to create a complete, one-of-a-kind program that combines real-life data with therapeutic guidance to help you find hope and healing.
Struggling with unwanted sexual behaviors can create feelings of frustration, anger, loneliness, and shame. Few issues create as much hurt and pain. Many have struggled for years or even decades.
The road to recovery can be exhausting. After many failed attempts the process can leave you feeling lost and discouraged. That’s why we’re here – to offer the support, resources, and connection you need to find hope and healing.

I am the sex addict spouse and we are due to have a baby tomorrow. I want to be the best for our child and I want our children to live a better life. You have given me hope. This isn’t a question, just gratefulness.
I feel more awareness than I’ve felt in a long time. Good grief… I’m noticing real change and real awareness! It’s wonderful.
Many question whether a person’s sexual behaviors can be addictive. The American Society of Addiction Medicine defines addiction as “…a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory, and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, physiological, social, and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors.”
Historically, when we observe any addictive behavior, the following five characteristics manifest themselves:
Thus, when we are referring to sexual addiction, we are referring to behaviors that match these criteria. For more information and a deeper understanding of sexual addiction and compulsivity, we recommend reading Dr. Kevin Skinner’s book, Treating Sexual Addiction: A Compassionate Approach to Recovery.
Recovery Capital is conceptually linked to natural recovery, solution-focused therapy, strengths-based case management, recovery management, resilience and protective factors, and the ideas of hardiness, wellness, and global health.
Even though some clients come to us having done a lot of prior work, they are still amazed at how much more in-depth our program is. We take you from A to Z, through all the ins and outs of what you need to get unstuck and reach recovery.
One of the most important things this program promotes is consistency. Often, when things come out into the open, we “binge and purge”. We binge on a LOT of information, learn a lot, but eventually get overwhelmed and angry or frustrated and stop (the purge). After a few days or weeks, we realize we still need help, so we start binging on information all over again.
In the Bloom for Partners coaching program, we’ll help you develop consistency, getting out of that binge and purge behavior. We want you to set aside time for yourself every day (10-15 min) to give yourself recovery space and time so you can start having a consistent voice and finally heal. This is all part of healing behavior. It is a lifestyle change.
