Grace Healing Journey specializes in the treatment of sexual compulsivity and addiction. Bruce Wayne Knight is both a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist and a Certified Sex Therapist and integrates attachment repair and spiritual formation into each aspect of the comprehensive treatment.

Approximately 3 in every 10 people in the United States struggle with sexual addiction and a much higher percentage struggle with sexually compulsive behavior. This compulsive behavior can consist of but is not exclusive to the following:

  • Pornography
  • Sexting
  • Online chatting
  • Masturbation
  • Strip clubs
  • Anonymous sex
  • Prostitutes or escorts
  • Affairs - Physical and/or emotional

Compulsive sexual behavior can interfere with relationships, while also facilitating legal, financial, and health related problems. These behaviors may also cause problems at work or in social settings.

Sexual Addiction Treatment Program & Philosophy

At Grace Healing Journey, we treat sexual addiction by focusing on the entire family system (addict, partner, couple, and children when applicable). We believe that to be a healthy couple, the addict and the partner both need to be healthy and that requires a significant amount of individual work for each of them. It is at that point that we then focus on the relationship, looking not only at the addiction and betrayal, but at all other aspects of the relationship from the very beginning. Our treatment model is a task-based, trauma-focused attachment model designed to offer sustainable and lasting healing that is hope inspired. We have found that clients suffering from the effects of sexual addiction can achieve optimal levels of healing when participating in individual, couple, and group counseling as well as carefully and strategically designed multi-day intensives.

Elements of the Grace Healing Journey Treatment plan include the following:

Individual counseling and assessments, Conjoint counseling sessions with addict and partner, Separate support group counseling for addicts and partners, 5 day male Intensives and 4 day partners intensive. Coming in 2019; We plan to offer a Couples intensive and workshops, along with Strengthening Your Recovery, a male intensive for men who attended the first male intensive.
