Have you ever walked on a moving pathway at the airport? Holding on to your roller luggage, you whiz by those standing to the right, and you are practically running compared to the slow pokes normal walking next to the moving aisle.  The end of the conveyor belt is near. You brace for the change, subconsciously holding your breath. Your momentum halts abruptly as your feet and luggage collide with the stationary laminate. You can relax after you make it over the threshold. But, you still have to adjust to your new speed, as you pull your own baggage, at your own pace.

Most young adults sometime after high school graduation have an experience that mirrors this #IRL.

For 18 years, you've been told what to do, when to do it, and what's coming up. There's a set schedule, a list of requirements, and a few electives that you can choose from.

Not only are you carrying the baggage of your own struggles, you've got to decide your ultimate destination. Have you asked yourself some or all of these questions?

  • What school should I go to?
  • What field do I want to enter?
  • What certifications are available?
  • Where should I live?

  • Who should I date? When should I get married?
  • And what about my anxiety, and depression, and uncovered coping behaviors?
  • Oh, and I don't know what I want to be when I grow up!!

Meet one of our therapists, Jed Anderson

Ten years ago, I found myself returning to a cycle I had tried so hard on my own to overcome...

Jed Family Picture

I finally admitted I had an addiction. My internal world was heavy and numb, the weight of it was constantly with me, the only time I escaped the burden of shame, regret and fear was when I was asleep at night.

My wife had discovered my habit and I faced what had felt like an impossible task: to keep my promise to stop viewing pornography. I hated everything about it, and yet there it was. Desperately, I tried to be the person that I portrayed. But I knew this was bigger than me.

My first attempt at therapy was not great, I went to a therapist, not having researched them, and found they didn't have the insight and skill needed to really help. That's when I sought out and found someone who specialized in lust addiction. The difference was like night and day. I found recovery, and my wife found hope. For the next 18 months therapy was a part of our lives. It changed everything and I knew I had found what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I was given weakness, that I might be humble, I was made humble, that I might be made strong.

Now I work exclusively helping people find hope and recovery. I know pornography addiction; inside and out; from study and experience, from the mind and the heart. Attachment rupture and loss of trust are the fruit of this addiction, it is affecting your family and marriage; I understand. The truth is that your miracle of recovery is beautiful and possible.

You can achieve a fulfilling, shameless life, permeated with love and trust. You can heal the attachment ruptures in your life. I am honored to witness this journey in my clients. If you are ready to save your life from the chains of addiction and to witness hope return to your spouses heart, then let's get started.
