Pornography Addiction Therapists
Jed Anderson, CMHC, LPC - Clinical Director
Jed has spent over 12 years involved in specialized help from sexual addiction, he is passionate about helping those stuck in addiction as well as their spouses or other loved ones who are struggling with betrayal trauma. As a pornography addiction therapist the greatest reward for Jed is seeing people find hope and peace through recovery work and through healing the attachments with self, God, spouse and others.
His recovery philosophy is that as with anything worth having in life lasting recovery is found by combining the principles of gospel truth and hard work, however it also requires healing and growth from deep inside ones heart. Jed is experienced and skilled at helping find and work through those deeper pieces that are often overlooked, misunderstood or linked to shame.
Jed also knows the road to healing for a spouse of an addict can seem very overwhelming. He is skilled at helping them work through the process of healing their hearts and finding a path back to trust and safety.
The treatment modalities Jed uses include Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, Gottman Couples Therapy, Betrayal Trauma Treatment, EMDR and CBT. He is authoring the book "Humble Warrior Recovery- How your True Self can overcome the addiction struggles in your life" and the book "B.O.M.B. Recovery- Book Of Mormon Based recovery from lust addiction."
Jed’s favorite things to do include golf, basketball, traveling, camping & hunting. He loves being a husband to a wonderful wife and father to five great kids.
Individuals appreciate Dr. Jason H. King’s non-judgmental yet challenging coaching style that results in lasting change. In 2012, he received the Mental Health Counselor of the Year Award from the American Mental Health Counselors Association. He has over 17 years of experience helping men and women discover hope to recover from the following problematic sexual behaviors fully:
- inappropriate sexual preoccupations (fetishes)
- compulsive usage of pornography or sexually arousing media
- emotional and physical affairs/infidelity
- sexual indiscretions, promiscuity, indiscriminate sexual encounters
- problematic sexual drive, fantasies, and behavior (masturbation)
Dr. King is also skillful in working with adolescents who are preparing to serve a mission, young adults who have recently returned from a mission, and adults of all ages who are in a relationship or a marriage. He developed an innovative spiritual treatment model – Triad of Sexual Behavior – that helps individuals get to the “root” causes of unhealthy sexual behaviors and replacing them with healthy sexual behaviors. As an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he understands its “unique” sexual culture (worthiness interview and temple marriage), its associated gender roles, and how to work collaboratively with ecclesiastical leaders. He currently serves in his ward as the Welfare Specialist – with a focus on emotional needs. Dr. is also knowledgeable of the Church’s Addiction Recovery Program and its 12-Step Guide.
Dr. King’s graduate education included courses in human sexuality, compulsive and addictive behavior treatment, and advanced clinical practice. His specialized post-doctoral training consists of the following:
- Trained by Dr. Dan Siegal in his Interpersonal Neurobiology – so Dr. King understands how to re-wire the brain’s mirror neurons that become “addicted” to pornography, how to reform unhealthy relationship attachment styles, and how to heal from betrayal trauma (PTSD)
- Trained by a Certified Therapist in Dr. Patrick Carnes’ Sex Addiction Treatment
- Trained by Dr. John Gottman in his Gottman Method Couples Therapy, his Love Lab, and his Regain The Love and Trust program from the Gottman Institute

Courtney Lyman, CMHC, CSAT-C
Courtney is a Clinical Mental Health Counselor specializing in treating pornography, sexual addiction, and the co-occurring disorders of anxiety and depression associated with addictive behavior.
The shame, guilt, and secrecy of childhood wounds can drive individuals to seek relief from a painful past by engaging in addictive behaviors that at some point become an addictive trap with seemingly no clear way out. Courtney understands that Individuals do not set out to make their lives unmanageable but find themselves developmentally stuck when maladaptive behaviors become habitually unconscious.
Courtney is expert at helping clients wake up to who they already are at their core through the process of transformation and connecting with their true selves. As clients grieve the loss of the unhealthy protector parts such as addictive behaviors they begin again to thrive.
Courtney has extensive experience in treating sexual addiction. In addition to his work with LDS Hope and Recovery he works with clients at Desert Solace, an inpatient facility specializing in the treatment of sex & pornography addiction, for the last 4 years, located in St George Utah.
