Over the past several years I have had many requests from clinicians who would like to be trained in my treatment model and have historically gotten more requests for Intensives than I can accept. In fact, I accept less than half of the couples who apply for my treatment program. In addition, numerous potential clients contact me each year asking if I have therapists in their area who are trained in my treatment model so they do not have to travel to our locations in Houston or the Canadian Rockies.

To date, my schedule has been so full that I have not wanted to slow down to accommodate such training. I have also been reluctant because I am conscious of the value of the Hope & Freedom brand and I did not want my process to be diluted by a therapist not properly trained in all aspects. That all changes now!  View my videos below to learn more about my methodology and when you're ready, contact me to for more details or submit an online application to become one of a few select Certified Hope & Freedom Practitioners (CHFPs) specializing in the Hope & Freedom Intensive model for sex addicts and their partners.

recovery for partners of sex addicts:  important aspects of healing

help!  I'm in love with a sex addict:
it's NOT your fault
There are no “sure signs” of a cheating spouse. Diagnosis of sex addiction should be left to a health care professional. However, partners or spouses often observe unusual leading them to believe their partner is hiding something.
