Kenneth Taylor, LCSW

Kenneth Taylor is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) credentialed through the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). He trained with Dr. Patrick Carnes, pioneer in the field of sex addiction treatment and research.

“My principle world-view is faith-based. As a committed Christian, I have found that the Bible is unfailing in wisdom and is relevant to virtually every life issue. In addition, I believe that much has been learned through the art and science of psychology and biology that is relevant to human behavior. In particular, I integrate the work of well-respected experts like Miller, Gottman, Carnes and Amen.”

Ken has expertise in dealing with the following:

  • Marital conflict
  • Sexual addiction
  • Cybersex addiction
  • Sexual anorexia
  • Affairs
  • Couple’s sexual issues
  • Sexual trauma and abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
