Texas’ first therapeutic men’s intimacy anorexia recovery group began in January 2017 in McKinney. Although the Dallas-Ft. Worth and surrounding areas have a strong therapeutic, and 12 Step recovery community for sex, love, and pornography addiction; recovery resources for those who also struggle with intimacy anorexia (IA) are rare, and therapist led support groups non-existent.
The men’s IA group will be the first of its kind in Texas. It is led by Dr. Janice Caudill, a CSAT and the state’s first certified IAT (Intimacy Anorexia Therapist). The IA group will have a work-group format, with members completing workbook exercises designed for IA recovery.
Participants will have the opportunity to practice intimacy-boosting skills and learn trigger-busting strategies that help defuse the anger and emotional intensity that intimacy-deprived spouses often feel. The men’s group builds support, feedback, and accountability for strengthening and sexual recovery.
The group will meet twice a month on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Membership requires an initial evaluation. Contact McKinney Counseling & Recovery for details.
Dr. Janice Caudill is the founder and Clinical Director of McKinney Counseling & Recovery. MCR offers individual, couples, group therapy and multi-day intensives for partners of sex addicts and wounded hearts struggling with sex addiction, infidelity, love addiction or love avoidance, intimacy anorexia, or relational trauma in the McKinney, Plano, Allen, Richardson, Frisco, Carrollton, Lewisville, Dallas and surrounding areas.
