Coaching for Partners of Sex Addicts
With JoAnn Russell, RN, MS
Certified Life Coach
Certified Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Practitioner
Stress Management Coach
Coaching combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Stress Management sessions are developed specifically for Partners of sex addicts.
My programs use a partner centered treatment model, which means that I am focused on YOU and YOUR healing; as opposed to sex addiction programs, CSAT therapists, 12 step groups or couples counseling therapy, which focus on the sex addict and often re-traumatize the partner by placing blame or minimizing the trauma she has endured.
Plans can be custom tailored to your needs and/or budget. Online video or phone sessions.
