Author, Paul Becker, now offers books that provide a structured educational process to identify the characteristics of sexual addiction and a path to recovery.
Paul Becker is a Licensed Professional Counselor who practices in Fairfax City, Virginia. He was an Economist and Executive in the Federal Service for more than 36 years. As part of his pledge to “give back” he obtained a Master’s degree in Counseling Education from Virginia Tech and embarked on a counseling and literary career. His recent book, Why Is My Partner Sexually Addicted?: Insight Women Need, provides women, who find their partners have strayed from the marriage contract, with an understanding of the why and how of his addiction and choices women have for moving forward.
Men who are sexually-addicted tell themselves lies, including, “nobody will find out,” and, “I am not hurting anyone.” In time, lies are exposed as a man’s life becomes increasingly out of control. Fortunately, countless men have discovered a new beginning through a commitment to recovery. His books, Recovery from Sexual Addiction: a Man’s Guide, and Workbook provide insights into:
• What is sexual addiction?
• Why can’t I just stop my destructive behavior?
• The sex-addiction cycle and acting out rituals.
• The role of anger, anxiety, codependency, and depressed mood in continuing sexual addiction.
• Is there hope I can change my behavior?
• Insights into the recovery journey.
Paul Becker offers gentle guidance on how to step out of addiction, isolation, and depressed mood into a life of enlightenment. His books follow the research-supported clinical modality presented in books published by Dr. Patrick Carnes. Dr. Carnes has approved for publication the concepts included in Paul Becker’s books.
