BONUS: Healthy Sexuality and Intimacy

Today, Onsite Lead clinician Carlos Martinez joins Mickenzie for an authentic and informative conversation about the ways unresolved painful past events can lead to unhealthy sexual addictions and coping patterns.

We hope this conversation sheds light on this sometimes taboo topic and leaves you with resources and encouragement. Carlos provides expertise, empathy, and encouragement, whether you’re struggling, are the partner of someone struggling, or are a mental health professional working in this space. Throughout this conversation, Mickenzie and Carlos also discuss Onsite’s upcoming program for men struggling with sex addiction and problematic sexual behaviors, Healthy Sexuality and Intimacy – March 13-20, hosted on our California campus.

To learn more about this experience, our admissions team would love to connect with you on a confidential call at 1-800-341-7432.
