Dominic Valdes, LCSW, CSAT, EMDR

I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist helping others find their authentic selves and their paths in life. I am here to listen deeply, guide and challenge when needed, and provide tangible skills to help you develop healthier patterns of thought and behavior. Therapy is a place for you to process and work through challenging experiences free from judgment and shame. Please contact me for a consultation to see if our relationship will be a good fit or to schedule our first session. I use a combination of EMDR, CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic approaches to help you build skills as well as understand subconscious motivational factors that drive your behavior, thoughts, and feelings. 

Who am I?

My journey involves overcoming many obstacles which led me to helping others and giving back. Being gay and raised in a small, conservative town means that I am no stranger to homophobia, depression, and social anxiety; subsequently, I fell into a brief period of addiction and compulsivity. I found myself and redeveloped my relationships through the help of a therapist. I want nothing more than to provide my clients with a safe, nonjudgmental relationship where they can learn and grow.
