Andrew’s life was filled with loneliness and he struggled to create meaningful relationships.
“I was feeling more and more depleted.”
His need to feel validated lead to compulsive sexual behavior. Andrew’s obsession came with some serious consequences including contracting sexually transmitted diseases.
After finding his way into a 12-Step program he started to turn his life around.
Andrew is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Group Psychotherapist who specializes in trauma, addictions, and codependency.
He says three main hallmarks describe out of control sexual behavior and addiction:
1. The thoughts are obsessive and all-consuming.
2. You want to stop but you can’t.
3. There are progressive consequences.
