I believe everyone wanting to recover from sexual addiction should have access to resources, even if they cannot afford therapy. Thus, I have compiled a list of free resources that support women and men in recovery. For those who can afford more specialized, customized services, who live in California, I highly recommend my online recovery program. For those outside of California, there are many other therapists who specialize in sexual addiction treatment throughout the United States and other parts of the world (look for CSAT & SATP certified therapists). The following free resources are not replacements for therapy but provide opportunities for learning, inspiration, and connection.


When you subscribe to the Life After Lust Newsletter, you will receive the following free printable copies that supplement the Life After Lust book and program.

  • What my wife/husband/partner is worth
