Discover Courage • Find Freedom • Live Authentically
Relationships are messy and can leave us with deep pain. At Gracefall, we’re not afraid of the messiness of relationships. We love the journey of relational healing, and we’re here to walk beside you and your relationship.
Courage in the realm of relationships requires that we face our fears about who we really are and how people will respond to us. It is best discovered in community. The therapy office is a great place to begin to discover this courage. You don’t have to do it alone anymore.
The therapy room is a place to say what you’ve never been able to say before. To feel what you’ve never been allowed to feel. To grow in ways you never thought possible. Gracefall wants to take the journey of personal growth with you.
Certified Sex Addiction Therapist
Working with Sex Addicts & Their Spouses
Gracefall believes that the best counselors for sex addiction are Certified or Associate Sexual Addiction Therapists (CSATs or ASATs.) They work with a task centered model designed to help addicts find the courage to be free from their addictions, and live authentically in the world. This is so important because sex addiction work is different than traditional therapy.
CSATs and ASATs go through intensive schooling to earn their credential. They sit under thirty hours of supervision from experts in the field and are required to keep up with the ongoing research through ongoing education requirements. They have all sorts of tools at their disposal to address sexual addiction. From assessments of the sex addict, to full carefully managed disclosures, to a renewal of vows or a freeing breakup; CSATs are trained and have the expertise to work with sex addicts.
CSATs are also trained to work with the spouses and partners of sex addicts, working from a betrayal trauma (or complex partner trauma) model. Moving away from the traditional co-dependency model to the betrayal trauma model is not only more compassionate and caring, it addresses some of the unique challenges that partners and spouses of sex addict face daily, helping them discover their own resilience and healing from shame and betrayal.
CSATs work in partnership with 12 step/12 tradition fellowships to provide wrap around care for clients sinking under the shame of their addiction. We are honored to walk with sex addicts, and spouses and partners of sex addicts, as they begin a journey toward wholeness and healing.
