Coeur d’Alene Counseling, Inc. treats individuals suffering from a sex addiction. This means both the addicted person and his or her partner or spouse have access to high quality and compassionate expert care to help overcome these problems. Coeur d’Alene Counseling takes every call or contact seriously . We know the pain and the courage it takes to reach out, so everyone who contacts us receives the compassion, promptness, and respect they justly deserve. That is how things are done here.


We noticed that individual psychotherapy was not enough for many people in recovery from sex addiction. People needed more services to help them get better—services like group therapy, couples group therapy, partners therapy, and intensive outpatient programing (IOP). We also found that despite good intentions, other therapists in the community did not have the specific intensive training needed to work with sex addicts and their partners. Coeur d’Alene Counseling, Inc. was formed to address the specific needs related to sex addiction and to help people get better. We know how to treat sex addiction and how to help partners of sex addicts resolve their trauma; and we like what we do.


Coeur d’Alene Counseling is associated with a strong circle of local private mental health professionals who work within their expertise and passion to help people heal.  Laura Taylor and Janet Gourley are two such local professionals.  By way of an office referral, they are uniquely qualified to help sexual addicts and their partners reach the best possible recovery outcome.  Both, as separate practitioners, work within independent professional settings, and their individual setting locations are listed below.

For many people, psychotherapy and addiction treatment might seem mysterious, even scary. At Coeur d’Alene Counseling, we believe that treatment should not be a mystery, nor should it involve guesswork. While treatment of sex addiction is a relatively newer treatment, we are fortunate to have access to important research and information such as AFAR, American Foundation for Addiction Research and the body of research and clinical work of Dr. Alexandra Katehakis,  Dr. Dan Siegel and Dr. Patrick Carnes. These are primary sources that inform and guide our evidence-based or evidence-informed practices. Our clients have access to the latest and most current sex addiction treatment and partner treatment available.
