During my eight-year search for freedom from sexual addiction, I spent many hours in counselor’s offices.
Some of what they offered helped. A few counselors did more harm than good. Most had letters after their name.
I wonder if they knew what breaking free from sexual sin actually looked like, or what the answer was. At the time, I had no idea what I was after, so I looked to them for the answers.
Talking with some counselors was like talking to a researcher. I felt like I was part of of their training and didn’t receive any help discovering what was keeping me trapped, or how to find the way out.
Today I know I needed the practical, real-world, Biblical tools – and structure to overcome temptation. I also needed to resolve my heart issues, which included distorted core beliefs and unresolved wounds that were driving the pull to lust.
Lasting freedom was impossible without both.
Since 2000, I’ve worked with men, wives, and couples at every level of the church and helped them find healing and freedom, (including senior pastors, those in the public eye, and regular people like you and me).
Wives have their own unique journey. Some have husbands whose hearts are hardened, and need guidance on how to approach them. Others have husbands who are trying to recover, yet their relationship is still floundering. Or they need help with anger, forgiveness, and their own healing.
If having a counselor with letters after their name and an education is important to you, I’m not the one. I don’t mean to say there aren’t wonderful licensed counselors who are helping people. There are many, I’m sure. It’s just not always easy to find one who knows the path to real freedom in this area.
If you want to work with someone who suffered in bondage of sexual sin for years, could have lost his marriage, then discovered the way to healing and freedom – and has years of experience helping others, we might be a good fit.
I offer individual and couples counseling over the phone and here in our office in Colorado Springs. We also offer a 2-day intensive for individuals or couples.

The immediate change in our lives was incredible. We have both grown so much closer to each other like never before. We have both grown close to Christ as well. – Mathew
