Sex Addiction Help In Long Beach

Duane Osterlind



Duane Osterlind, LMFT, CSAT-S (he/him)

Are you struggling with sex or porn addiction? Is your relationship not working? Are you feeling depressed
or anxious?

The research is clear that counseling works, and I am blessed to see it in the clients I work with.

As a licensed therapist, I have had extensive experience in supporting people through some of life biggest challenges. I have worked with people who have felt that there was no hope for them. I have worked with couples that have felt so stuck that they wanted to give up all the time they had invested in their families and relationship.

I know that not everyone’s story is the same and not every outcome is exactly what we think we need, but what I do helps clients find what works for them to create the life they can enjoy and feel good in no matter the circumstances.

As your therapist, I will work with you to give you the latest in counseling research, techniques, and skills to help you find your path.
