Jackson Sousa, LMFT and Certified Sex Therapist (CST) is the driving force behind the Counseling Center for Sexual Health (CCSH) in Westlake Village, a suburb of Los Angeles. CCSH has been in operation since 2006. Sousa and his clinical team offer an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for men batting sex addiction and other compulsive behaviors. They also offer personalized individual counseling plans and groups to support partners and to help men with empathy disorders.
Treatment and Staff
CCSH’s IOP meets three evenings a week for three hours, and each client has individual therapy at least once a week, as well. The length of the IOP is six weeks, and many clients continue treatment with individual therapy after IOP. Therapy uses a variety of evidence-based modalities such as DBT, CBT and psychodynamic processing. It also offers equine therapy and EMDR for trauma processing.
Clinicians offer emotionally-focused couples counseling and sexual health support that deals with sexual dysfunction and desire discrepancies. CCSH’s group for men with empathy disorders helps men who are unable to commit to their relationships gain more understanding of themselves and their partners.
With Sousa at the helm, the rest of the team at CCSH includes three MFT Interns. The facility can refer clients in need of medication management to area psychiatrists and it encourages clients to participate in 12-step meetings, such as Sex Addicts Anonymous.
CCSH’s group for partners of sex addicts meets weekly and clinicians see many women individually, as well. CCSH has a robust website that features blog posts on recovery topics, suggested reading and videos and recovery resources.
The Counseling Center for Sexual Health has been treating clients for sex addiction and sexual health challenges for more than a decade. With an IOP for men, a support group for partners and a processing group for men with empathy disorders, the Center provides multiple approaches to care for the complex issues that disrupt healthy sexuality.
