My Approach to Helping

How many hours have you spent on the internet and telling your family that it was for work or for school when it was porn? Pornography is a real and growing problem, especially during COVID-19. How many times have you told yourself that you would quit or at least cut down? You do not have to wait until your family finds out before you reach out for help. Pornography addiction can be as real as drug addiction and it can ruin relationships and even get you fired. Adults are not the only one’s impacted by pornography. The average age of exposure to hard core pornography is 13 and many students engage in sexting at around the same time.

I use proven techniques to break the bonds of porn addiction and promote healthy relationships. Through treatment for pornography addiction, you will be able to improve relationships, increase work productivity, decrease anxiety, decrease depression and have a gratifying and intimate sex life with a real human partner.

The decision to reach out for help is the biggest decision in treatment. I will walk with you through your journey to sexual freedom and I believe that you have the motivation and the capacity to make real and lasting change. Feel free to reach out by calling me at (760) 895-1616 or through email at

More Info About My Practice

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC #25) with a Master's degree from the University of Colorado at Denver in Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education and 15 years of experience working as a professional counselor. I started my career in Utah with the Utah Network on Juveniles Offending Sexually. After moving to the desert 10 years ago, I worked in substance abuse and sex addiction rehabilitation centers for many years. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and have California Sex Offender Management Board certification (CASOMB). I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Qualified Supervisor and I am currently taking on new interns.

"Clint has an apt ability to listen combined with a knowledge of how to ask the right questions. Instead of giving cheap answers, he will get you to the heart of a problem. He will give a straightforward answer when it is needed, but he loves asking questions that dig deeper than simple habit adjustment. He will challenge you to ask yourself the tough questions, which has helped me feel confident and equipped for future struggles. While he is always there to help, you can tell Clint's goal is to get you to a place where you have the tools to overcome your own obstacles." - Chris, La Quinta, CA
