A quick note about Covid-19 & starting therapy
It can always be a challenge to start therapy during a crisis. Ironically this is almost always how and when powerful and true recovery gets a kickstart. It is when a crisis arises that we realize how much we want to overcome a problem in our lives and find the strength to take those first steps.
Often we might think to ourselves, “what’s the point now?” or “after this crisis, I’ll start.” Perhaps you have found yourself using many of the same excuses used before the coronavirus to put off asking for help. Really, however, right now, during this crisis period of added anxiety and stress, calling to schedule an appointment for professional support can be incredibly healing and empowering! You can see that you are not alone and that together, we have hope!
Fortunately, thanks to internet technology, it’s easy to start online recovery now using phone or video sessions with a local certified sex addiction therapist. Then, you will have a plan and be on your way. Once we all walk through this pandemic, and we will, you will have already started your recovery journey. You will be able to continue your recovery with face to face, in person, sessions if that is a fit for you, or continue online. Imagine how thankful you may feel once this health risk is over when you are well on your way to recovery, good health, and joyful life! This truly is the perfect time to put your head down and start the hard work!

If you are looking for help and have suffered some of the consequences above we can help. We have helped many individuals survive the consequences of sex addiction. We know that with hard work and a commitment many find peace from the noise and pain that sex addiction creates.
At Novus, our expert therapists believe everyone can overcome sex addiction. We have seen it happen.
At Novus, we see sex addiction as the compulsive use of sex to deal with painful feelings and moods. The behavior leaves the person feeling guilty and shameful. It creates more problems in the person’s life. To deal with these problems and the emotional pain the person turns back to sex to find some escape. The sex addiction cycle continues.
Even the loss of their marriage, relationship or job does not mean they will stop. They look to sex as the solution. Like the drug addict who knows the drug will end his pain, so does the sex addict. The problems of sex addiction are real and painful.
Often, the person using compulsive sex gains little long-term satisfaction from the behavior. They feel lonely, depressed and out of control, which in turn leads them back to the addictive sex to “feel better”.
These are the top ten warning signs of sexual addiction. They have been put together by Dr. Patrick Carnes, one of the world’s leading experts in sexual addiction. Here are some questions to ask yourself if think you may have a problem with sexual addiction:
If you answered yes to three or more of these questions you may want to look further at your sexual behavior.
The short answer is no, most likely not. Willpower alone may help you to a certain extent, but you will not have any real long-term success.
