We Understand

Welcome to LifeWorks Recovery, a Dallas sex addiction outpatient center specializing in the holistic and integrative treatment of sexual compulsivity, pornography/cybersex addiction, disordered eating and other unhealthy food rituals, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma, love addiction, family problems, partners of sex addicts, substance abuse, codependency, and marriage/couples issues.

Are you or a family member struggling with pornography addiction, infidelity, or other sexually addictive or compulsive behaviors? Are you the wife/husband/partner of a sex addict, who has just discovered the sexual behaviors of your spouse/partner? Are you someone in pain or shock because of the sexual acting out of your loved one? Are you worried about the impact the behavior will have on your children or your family? Are you or a family member struggling with symptoms of PTSD or complex trauma?

If you or a loved one are affected by these behaviors, then we are here to help. As Dallas therapists we collaborate as a team to effectively offer the expertise, life experience and clinical training to support, not only the addict, but the affected spouse/partner, children, and the larger family system.

Our Professionals

At Lifeworks Recovery each counselor works with you and your family on a one-on-one basis to help you understand and uncover the reasons for your addiction, and the harm addiction has created.

Lifeworks Recovery is a professional counseling practice and outpatient center located in Dallas, TX, that provides individual, marriage/couple, and family therapy, in addition to group counseling services. We offer treatment for issues of depression, addiction, eating disorders, trauma/PTSD, co-addiction, codependency, life changes issues, infidelity, love addiction, money, pornography/internet addiction, wealth in families, betrayal, substance abuse, self-esteem, and other life issues.

We emphasize healing for the entire family system.

It isn't just the addict, alcoholic or drug addict that is affected and needs help. The spouses and children of the addict are naturally and deeply affected. They often experience trauma, betrayal, abandonment, and abuse. It is common for family members to feel alone and neglected as the addict gets help. Lifeworks Recovery's counselors are trained to understand the partner’s and children's needs, and to identify and treat coexisting issues of trauma and neglect.

We have years of experience dealing with the issues that affect an addicted family system, including depression, anxiety, grief, loss, abuse, money issues, and trauma. We specialize in treating process and substance addictions, codependency, co-addiction and trauma. In addition to our therapists’ professional counseling licenses, our current credentials also include:

    1. Certified Sex Addiction Therapists (CSAT)
    2. Gottman Level II Training
    3. Level II EMDR Therapist

Lifeworks Recovery therapists strive to provide an environment free of shame and blame, filled with empathy, compassion, and honesty. We understand that this approach is crucial to creating the space necessary to break through denial and fear, and cultivate serenity, peace, intimacy, honesty, and integrity.

We consider mental health to be defined as a commitment to awareness and reality at all costs. If you are ready to live a connected, empowered, fulfilling life, then let us help you or a loved one begin to heal, today.

For a therapist in the Dallas area, trust the compassionate professionals at Lifeworks Recovery. Let us help you break free and enjoy your life to its fullest. Contact us today.


"For those unable to make peace with their pain, There was a gradual diminishment of their life force.
It became obvious it was not just the most recent griefs that underlay their intermittent depression and dysfunction but the imprint of losses long past -- yet still painfully present"
