Sex Addiction Help in San Diego, CA
Are your sexual behaviors out of control? Does it seem like you’ve tried everything but you can’t stop? As a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist (CSAT) in San Diego, CA, we can help you work on stopping the behavioral side of your addictive issues as well as help you get to the root of the problem. At Andrew Last Family Counseling Group, we provide individual, group and couples therapy for those dealing with sexual addiction.
How Do You Know if You're a Sex Addict?
Through a study conducted in 2012, Dr. Patrick Carnes estimated that 3-6% of the population deals with sexual addiction. It can often be difficult to assess if you have an addiction or are merely hyper sexual. The PATHOS questionnaire is an easy way to find out if you may be addicted to sex.
P- Preoccupied: Are you often preoccupied with sexual thoughts?
A- Ashamed: Do you hide some of your sexual behavior from others?
T- Treatment: Have you ever sought therapy for sexual behavior you didn’t like?
H- Hurt: Have you ever hurt someone emotionally because of your sexual behavior?
O- Out of control: Do you ever feel controlled by your sexual desire?
S- Sad: When you have sex do you feel depressed or despair afterwards?
A positive response to one of these questions indicates the need to seek further assessment from a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist. If you selected two or more of these criteria you likely have a sexual addiction and need to seek help. Contact us today for an appointment so you can get on the road to recovery.
I started working with Andrew soon after discovering that I am a sex addict. I only worked with him for a short time, as I moved away. But in the months that I worked with him, he really helped me to open up and be honest about my past and my problems. He gave me tools that I still use and I am grateful for his help.
Devoted Therapist and Exceptional Colleague
I've worked with Andrew since he started private practice, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that every interaction has been supportive, positive, and beneficial. I refer clients to him with complete confidence, knowing he always puts his clients first. Andrew is committed to his craft, continually bettering his skills as a therapist.
Full of Integrity, Open to Others, A Compassionate Listener
Andrew has been a very dear friend of mine for 15 years. He possesses many wonderful qualities that, I have no doubt, make him an excellent therapist. First, he is one of the best listeners I know. He shows compassion, gentleness, and a respect for your story, no matter what it might be. Second, he is incredibly accepting and open to others. I have never once felt judged by him, and I have also never heard him express judgment toward others. And third, Andrew is a man of true integrity. He is committed to serving others in his profession, and throughout his personal life, and it is clear that he lives with a deep sense of calling and love for others.
Andrew is an excellent therapist. Andrew is knowledgeable in sexual addiction treatment and is also able to bring a Christian spiritual approach to therapy.
Andrew is able to help you see through all the pain and help you focus in what matters in a marriage...love! He has been amazing and helped my husband and I find our way back to each other.
I have known Andrew for many years and as a pastor I recommend many of my congregational members to his practice. They have received professional, compassionate, and wise counsel and many have shared with me their gratitude for the care Andrew extended. Particularly appropriate in our culture is the ongoing struggle with sexual addiction and Andrew's skillful care in this area has provided hope to individuals and couples who have been devastated by this addiction. I highly recommend him to individuals, couples, and families who are seeking help and hope!
