Kevin Leapley, MA, LPC, CSAT
Online Sexual Addiction Counselor
My desire in becoming a counselor came out of my own recovery work and healing journey. That journey helped me find freedom and restoration for my marriage and for me from addiction. I have a deep desire to help men and couples find their own restoration and a deeper intimate connection in the same way my past counselors have helped me and my wife. I find great fulfillment and joy working with men that struggle with sexual addiction and porn addiction.
Sexual Addiction Counseling Training & Experience
I received specialized training in treating sexual addiction from Dr. Patrick Carnes and obtained certification as a Sexual Addiction Therapist. I did not just go to college or a training program and read about recovery from sexual addiction. I also personally lived “the life” and went through my own journey of recovery. Who is better able to help you than a counselor who knows what you are struggling with and also personally knows what it will take to heal?
My area of focus in counseling is to work with clients who struggle with sexual addictive behaviors, pornography addiction, multiple affairs, trauma (physical, emotional, spiritual), and men who struggle with anger.
I work with clients to determine the underlying wounds or trauma that he is using the sex to numb, medicate, escape, and alleviate. Sexual addiction is not just about wanting more sex but rather it is a relational and intimacy wound that began in early development. The “wound” is usually related to past abandonment, physical or emotional abuse, rejection, low self-worth, shame, and/or disconnection by parent, caregiver, family, and friends. The sexual behaviors have become a pseudo-connection that will never hurt him, leave him, or reject him. The goal is not simply to stop the sexual behaviors but to learn new ways to connect and trust others to meet his needs.
I also provide Online (Video) counseling services for sexual addiction in Colorado & Texas.
