UNASHAMED – Having courage for real conversations.
Our message is that shame is not of God. Shame says you are bad, not that you’ve done something bad. You do not need to be ashamed that you or someone you love is fighting Sexual Addiction. You are not alone. Our mission is to create a forum to talk, learn and get help without the barrier of shame. You have worth. God loves you and is waiting with outstretched arms to help you.
UNAFRAID – Faith in God’s love enough to act.
Sexual Addiction is a tool of the Adversary. It separates us from the ability to have happiness and peace. We will share tools, experiences, and avenues that lead to real and lasting healing. You do NOT have to manage or struggle with addiction forever. You can be 100% healed. We will share men’s stories who have been healed by Christ. The choice is yours, the path is clear and you can win. Satan wants you to believe you can’t or won’t and Christ wants you to believe that you can and you will.
Willow Tree Counseling is an out-patient program that treats sexual addiction with a comprehensive approach. We provide support and services to all members of the family. Treatment is provided through group and individual therapy, as well as educational seminars and therapeutic workshops.
