The Center for Intimacy Recovery is accepting new members in our virtual psycho-educational group for women who are dealing with love and sex addiction and seeking to create healthier intimacy in their lives.


New Members Will Be Accepted Beginning:

Monday, February 19th

6:00 - 7:30 pm


(One individual assessment session is required to ensure that the group is a good fit.)

The Focus of the Group will be on:

  • Exploring principles of intimacy and cultivating new healthier ways of building intimacy with self and others

  • Examining destructive patterns that are used to avoid intimacy from a female perspective

  • Identifying core needs and the impact when they are not met

  • Providing a safe and supportive space to build connections

  • Boundaries

  • Attachment 

  • Exploring the addiction cycle while also examining triggers, feelings, and shame

  • Sex and Love addiction recovery/psychoeducation on SLAA

  • Affect regulation skills (this is not a skills group but skills come up when group members are struggling with dysregulation/triggers)

  • Understanding one's own "arousal template."

This group is a combination of psycho-educational and experiential exercises designed to help women reach a better understanding of themselves and their behavior, especially in relation with others. It also lays the groundwork for group members to begin to change patterns and behaviors which hold them back or may be self-destructive and begins to heal the causes for negative patterns in relationships.

What makes us different?


We don’t discuss intimacy

We do intimacy.


Learning to be relational comes from being relational.


The intimate relationship is an integral part of the healing experience. 


Our staff works intimately with our individual clients to help them discover and see their authentic selves.


We help couples develop or deepen their intimacy on all levels and to remove the obstacles that hold them back from feeling more intimately connected.


Our Intimacy Groups are living, breathing experiences of intimacy


. For us, the relationship between therapist and client is sacred.

It’s more than someone to tell stories to.

It’s more than “a friend who listens.”

It’s more than someone telling you to do “self care.”

It’s more than someone who gives you advice.


The relationship with your therapist should be one of the most intimate experiences of your life

At the Center for Intimacy Recovery it is.
