About Us

Our Mission StatementCultivating Personal and Interpersonal Integrity

The mission of Seeking Integrity is to form and nurture accessible, comprehensive, interactive communities for people seeking to understand, address, and redress with integrity behavioral health challenges wherever and however they manifest.

Seeking Integrity LLC is a collective of healing communities, both online and in the real world. We utilize the internet, blogs, podcasts, live online support, and real-world treatment programs to promote healing from intimacy disorders like sex addiction, porn addiction, paired substance and sex addiction, intimacy disorders, and chronic infidelity. Seeking Integrity seeks to provide education and support to anyone who finds us online or in the real world. We offer shame-free, compassionate, easily understandable, expert-informed approaches to healing sex and intimacy problems. We seek to give away as much knowledge and information as possible, knowing that those who find us will benefit and grow from the experience no matter where we meet, be it online or in the real world. All of our work seeks to encourage healthy intimacy, pair bonds, relationships, community, and family. Throughout Seeking Integrity’s supportive process lies the singular belief that those seeking help are so much more than the problem they manifest. We see our client’s challenges, but our goal is to play to their strengths. Providing a hopeful, strength-driven message to those we serve is an integral part of our proven recipe for long-term behavior change and healing.
