Lisa McCafferty, MA, NCC, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin
For 15 years I've treated porn addiction, obsessive thoughts, "bad thoughts," OCD, and compulsive sexual behaviors. I use a proven program of cognitive-behavioral therapy and am always versed in the latest research about compulsivity and obsession. When appropriate, I approach issues from a whole family perspective. With a background in inpatient psychiatric treatment, I also look for the anxiety/mood disorders that can precipitate problematic behavior. My approach is respectful, empathetic, and direct.
If you fight unwanted sexual thoughts/behaviors/infidelity, I can help you end the excuses, secrets, and fears that drive thoughts and behaviors. I work in confidence and without judgement to help you uncover the issues, traumas, or situations that have made sexual acting-out the perfect means of escape.
I have the training and knowledge required to work with people who have major mood and obsessive disorders. I also counsel families and partners who have been devastated and betrayed by compulsive sexual thoughts or behavior. I'm a 2012 graduate of the IOCD Foundation's Behavioral Therapy Training Institute.
