We provide a holistic, comprehensive game plan for both churches and individuals. 

Our aim is to come alongside churches and equip them to establish a healing ministry for men and women in their congregation. 

We provide effective group resources for both the one who is struggling with sexual compulsive behavior (male or female) and the spouse who has been wounded by the behavior. 

We also offer the two-day Pure Desire University, which is a training conference that helps the church understand the true nature of sexual addiction and proven strategies for change. 

For individuals, our counseling process is focused on working with the couple in healing. We work with couples as couples, as each clinician is joined by a co-clinician. In this way, both husband and wife have an advocate in the room. 

Addiction is a family systems problem, so the marriage must be healed for lasting change to occur. We believe that men and women can be fully and finally free, not by trying harder through behavior modification, but by changing the way they do life. Our approach to change involves the head (brain), the hands (behavior), and the heart (relationships).

Pure Desire Ministries is a biblically-based and clinically-informed approach to healing.

Founder and Clinician of Pure Desire Ministries
