You are not alone.
Struggling with sex and love addiction, marital issues, depression, anxiety, and/or memories of past pain and trauma can be incredibly isolating and lonely. You might feel hopeless, overwhelmed, and uncertain of a way out of the pain.
At Restored Hope, my role is to be your guide through the process of getting unstuck, engaging painful emotions, and experiencing a more full and vibrant life. Restored Hope is a Christian faith-based counseling office serving the Ann Arbor and Novi areas of Michigan.
When you’re plagued with painful thoughts, memories, or patterns of behavior, you can easily feel isolated, defeated, and alone. Taking the courageous step of seeking one-on-one counseling can help you learn tools you need to deal with your pain and experience the freedom of a wholehearted life.
sex and love addiction
Sex addiction is a shame-based addiction made worse by numbing and escaping pain with compulsive sex. For women, sex addiction or addiction to porn carries a huge stigma, as men are more often the focus of treatment. But there is a way out: a path to healing and freedom available to you.
Marriage and relationships do not come with a manual and are certainly not perfect. Often the people we are most intimate with can wound us in the deepest ways. Couples counseling helps you to break through the walls separating you and build a thriving relationship.
Wounds often happen in relationships, and therefore they need to be healed in relationship. Group therapy provides support from other people who are going through the same trials you are, and you have the opportunity to learn how to communicate well with others.
Past experiences of abuse, abandonment, or harm of any kind can lodge itself into your brain and affect your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors decades later. Working through past trauma, whether it happened 2 days ago or 20 years ago, can free you from the destructive thinking patterns that shape your life.
