Meet our founding therapist, Jed Anderson

Ten years ago, I found myself returning to a cycle I had tried so hard on my own to overcome...

Jed Family Picture

I finally admitted I had an addiction. My internal world was heavy and numb, the weight of it was constantly with me, the only time I escaped the burden of shame, regret and fear was when I was asleep at night.

My wife had discovered my habit and I faced what had felt like an impossible task: to keep my promise to stop viewing pornography. I hated everything about it, and yet there it was. Desperately, I tried to be the person that I portrayed. But I knew this was bigger than me.

My first attempt at therapy was not great, I went to a therapist, not having researched them, and found they didn't have the insight and skill needed to really help. That's when I sought out and found someone who specialized in lust addiction. The difference was like night and day. I found recovery, and my wife found hope. For the next 18 months therapy was a part of our lives. It changed everything and I knew I had found what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

I was given weakness, that I might be humble, I was made humble, that I might be made strong.

Now, with my team, we help people find hope and recovery, through all types of common struggles. Because of my personal experience going through the depths of despair and hopelessness, and utilizing professional tools for recovery, I have a unique passion and skill set for helping families receive proven methods for recovery and healing, both individually, and as a family unit.

We will work together, with my certified and trained coaches and counselors to find the right connections for your healing journey. You can achieve a fulfilling, shameless life, permeated with love and trust. You can heal the attachment ruptures in your life. I am honored to witness this journey in my clients. If you are ready to save your life from the chains of addiction and to witness hope return to your spouses heart, then let's get started.

It’s time to find real hope for your teen.
