Internet Porn-The New Crack Cocaine

By | April 27th, 2010|Categories: Featured, Sex Addiction|Tags: , , , , |

Concerning internet porn, the internet is a perfect drug delivery system because you are anonymous, aroused and have role models for these behaviors. I fear that the upcoming generation will include a large majority of individuals who cannot relate to each other on an intimate level and who will spend their entire lives seeking fantasy relationships that have no grounding in reality.

Prostitution-Don’t Legalize it! Criminalize the Buyer!

By | April 24th, 2010|Categories: Featured, Sex Addiction|Tags: , , , , , |

Yes, I have heard, and sadly have previously agreed, that prostitution always has and always will be around, so why not just legalize it? But there was always that nagging hurt inside of me for the women. Something just wasn't right about legalizing an industry that exploits women. An industry that caters to the base instincts of men who think that money can buy another human being and allow them to use and abuse that human being in any way they choose. An industry where men, and only men--the johns and the pimps, benefit at the expense of the objectified and abused women.

Spring, Our Time to Emerge as Beautiful Butterflies

By | April 17th, 2010|Categories: Featured|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal. I was profoundly moved this week as I watched a butterfly emerge from her chrysalis and I thought of myself and all of you who are emerging into a new life as beautiful butterflies.The photo that I took is on the left. I apologize for not writing any posts in a while. Spring has sprung here in Missouri and, with lots of flower beds and landscaped terraces screaming for my attention I have been up to my elbows in planting, weeding and outdoor clean up. And, this weekend my son and his family are in from out of town, so grandma will be busy cooking and soaking up lots of love. I have also been very busy working the bugs out of some new audio/visual production software (I love Adobe) to provide podcasts and interviews for this site. […]

Does Married To A Sex Addict need a forum page?

Home From The Hospital

By | November 11th, 2009|Categories: Featured, Sex Addiction|

I’m so happy to be home after 28 days in the hospital. I’m also happy to see that this site carried on without me with the wonderful comments and shares from my friends. I’ll try not to bore you with the lengthy details, but this experience was truly unique. Just for the record, I am extremely healthy–so much so that I tend to brag that I never even get a cold. I am active, do all my own yard work, hike and am very fit. And I am a Registered Nurse who should know signs and symptoms of illness. […]

Does COSA Help Or Hurt Spouses Of Sex Addicts?

By | July 29th, 2009|Categories: COSA, Featured, Sex Addiction|Tags: , , , , , , |

I still have major objections to the implication that a spouse or partner of a sex addict needs to accept the tenants of the 12 steps.

NOW AVAILABLE!

Coaching for Partners of Sex Addicts.

One-on-one Skype or phone coaching sessions for wives and partners of sex addicts with Diane Strickland are now available through the Sisterhood Of Support.

.

If you are or have been a wife or partner of someone who is engaging in secret or blatant sexual activities with people other than you, you are likely overwhelmed with hurt and shock. Diane is now offering coaching for Partners of sex addicts.

Dealing with this trauma includes:

  • a steep and painful learning curve
  • a bundle of debilitating trauma symptoms
  • a sense of isolation
  • a lack of credible research data on this topic
  • a doubtful treatment protocol
  • lots of expensive “solutions” advertised with no reliable outcomes
  • trying to avoid treatment-induced partner trauma
  • getting up every day to go to work, care for children and others, etc.

Having the opportunity to talk one-on-one with someone who understands this landscape of trauma and treatment confusion may help you to get your feet under you and begin to find your way forward.

But who would you be talking with?

A critical thinker with decades of experience dealing with people, Diane also provides strategic coaching to help you identify and pursue your goals in mediation processes, custody evaluations, visitation issues and court proceedings. Learn how to tell your story effectively and bring your concerns forward in ways that allow key decision-makers to use their power without taking sides.

Diane Strickland has been in your shoes. She gets it. She understands what is at stake for you. She knows you have to find your way through this with compassion, fidelity to your core values, and the courage to grow.
