The Dangers of Teen Sexting
I recently did an interview with Jerry Dahmen at KSOO Radio in Sioux Falls where we talked about teen sexting and some of the dangers that exist with that behavior.
Sex Addiction in South Dakota?
This is a question I get often. "Are there really people struggling with sex and pornography addiction here in Sioux Falls?" There are. Recently there have been several news stories highlighting the struggles of high profile politicians and celebrities that are furthering the discussion about sex and pornography addiction in our area. I talked with Keloland Television's Leland Steva about this growing and treatable problem not only for celebrities but also for South Dakotans in an interview last week.
The good news is that you are not alone and there are several treatment options available for those struggling with sex and pornography addiction in the Sioux Falls area. If you feel like you or someone you care about may be struggling please contact me and we can discuss how to move forward.
