I’m glad you could make it. I hope you’re ready for an amazing journey.
As a Certified Addiction Coach,(CAC) and a Sex and Pornography Addiction Coach (SPARC) as well as recovered porn addict for just over 9 years , I believe it is WITHOUT A DOUBT possible to overcome your addiction to porn, masturbation, and other sexually compulsive disorders while building a healthy, and fulfilling life. I’ve done it and the men I work with have done so as well.For the past 6 years, I’ve helped men regain control of their sexual lives, recover fully from porn addiction, overcome sexual and social anxiety, improve their relationships and lead fulfilling lives.
I am proud of you for making it this far in your journey. Seeking support takes a lot of courage!
I am here to offer you my full support. You may contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why did you become a Recovery Coach?
I grew up in a conservative culture and religious family. As a result, I developed a lot of sexual shame during my childhood which led to more issues when I was a teenager. I medicated the feelings and emotions which I couldn’t handle with compulsive pornography and masturbation.
I was exposed to pornography at the age of 8 and struggled to quit my behavior for over 15 years.
You can learn more about my recovery journey and philosophy on recovery here.
Sexual shame is deeply connected to pornography addiction, sexually compulsive behaviors and a lackluster sexual life. Pornography is viewed in private and shame thrives when it is hidden.
My journey to recovery began when I almost lost my life due to my acting out behaviors. That terrible experience led me to seek out mentors, obtain counseling and certification in the field and consume every resource on addiction recovery I could find. I applied what I learned to myself and developed the beliefs, values, and mindset that led to my eventual recovery.
Because I spent so much time in the trenches of overcoming pornography and the complication associated with it, such as, low self-esteem erectile dysfunction, social anxiety, depression and much more, I’m able to see the bigger picture that 99% of men who are addicted to porn or unsuccessful with women don’t see.
The methods I teach work for bad porn habits, addictions and ALL sorts of sexually compulsive disorders while equipping you with skills that will enable you to live a satisfying life. I’ve learned from some of the best, and I’m still learning every day.
Most of all, I help men find that freedom and peace which is the true definition of success. Nothing brings more happiness and satisfaction than freedom from your chains and peace of mind
My Personal Life
Outside of Elevated Recovery, I stay very active and live by the principles I coach clients on. I enjoy working out daily, meditation, and travel. I try to travel internationally as often as I can. I’m also an avid martial arts fan and boxer. I also run mentorship programs for men in their twenties- guiding them on choosing careers and making crucial decisions in their lives.
What is your Experience / Credentials?
I have been recovered from Pornography addiction for 10 years( November 2018 is my 10th year anniversary) and I have been formally mentoring men on porn and sex addiction recovery since 2012. Since then, I have personally mentored over 300 men in 1 on 1 situations on their recovery from pornography and sex addiction. Over 1200 men have completed my various courses on addiction recovery.
A tremendous amount of research is going on regarding the neuroscience of behavioral addiction. I stay up to date on as many modalities of recovery as time will permit.
Currently, I am a Certified Life Coach through the World Coach Institute and completing certification as a Certified Addiction Recovery Coach (CAC)
In addition to that, I am in training under Dr. Dawn-Elise Snipes for certification as Sex and Pornography Addiction Counselor (SPARC) . In early 2018, I am slated to begin two more certifications in the field of Pornography, Sex Addiction, and Trauma Recovery Counseling
I am along with Diana Baldwin, LCSW the creator of Porn Reboot (TM) one of the most sought-after online recovery courses for men struggling with porn and sex addiction.
My best credentials, however, come from the hundreds of clients and men enrolled in my recovery courses who have regained control over their lives -especially those who have maintained their recovery and sobriety for many years.
Everything I speak about is based on my personal recovery experience, my training and backed by the results of hundreds of clients who have successfully overcome their sexually compulsive disorders through my coaching and services.
This isn’t my first career. I graduated from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas with degrees in Communication, Media, and Journalism.Over the past decade, I’ve been the Director of the largest international student internship program in the United States. I have also run several large B2C sales organizations since 2006.
Thanks to my past experience in high-pressure professional environments as well as running an internship program for college students, I am equally at ease working with college-age men all the way to established professionals.
