Hi I’m Dr. Stefanie Carnes, LMFT, CSAT-S and I am a sex and pornography addiction expert – Ask Me Anything!
EDIT: Thanks so much for all your questions, I had a great time. If you are looking for more info visit www.sexhelp.com or if you're looking for a therapist visit www.iitap.com. If you're looking for treatment visit elementsbehavioralhealth.com.
I am a clinical consultant at Promises Scottsdale and help diagnose and treat sex addicts. Sex and porn addictions affect more than just the addict, it can affect your family and relationships as well. I am the president of the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP.) You also may know my father, Dr. Patrick Carnes who is one of leading sex addiction researchers.
In addition to sex addiction I also treat patients with eating disorders and chemical dependency. I am the author of “Mending a Shattered Heart: A Guide for Partners of Sex Addicts,” “Facing Heartbreak: Steps to Recovery for Partners of Sex Addicts” and “Facing Addiction: Starting Recovery from Drugs and Alcohol.”
