Let’s Address the Elephant in the Room

When it comes to sensitive topics, sex is at the top of the list. It’s a highly charged, complex subject that many of us don’t like to talk about. We tend to try and “tough it out” when it comes to sexual issues, which can lead to huge problems later on. At Watershed, we are uniquely qualified to prevent those problems from happening – and help you work through them if they do.
Watershed Counseling’s Marti Witherow is Mississippi’s only board certified sex therapist. Her specialized training from the American Board of Christian Sex Therapists (ABCST) helps her address sex related issues including:

  • Low Sexual Desire
  • Desire Descrancy among Spouses

As a certified Christian sex therapist, Marti incorporates high professional standards and excellent training to help couples, individuals and families deal with sensitive sex related concerns. She will also help you understand that you aren’t alone in dealing with these issues. Countless others have overcome these – and similar – problems through therapy alone, or by working with a medical doctor/sex therapist treatment team.

Medical Referrals

Marti is highly skilled at dealing with sexual issues that arise from medical conditions. She regularly receives referrals from OBGYNs and other medical professionals, and works in treatment teams with doctors and physical therapists to help clients remedy these issues. Coordinating with other caregivers is a service we provide to help you get the most out of your efforts. Working with a sex therapist throughout your recovery is a great way to ensure your success.

Sexual Addiction

Sexual addiction is a problem that can tear families apart. It’s also something no one should have to combat alone. Watershed Counseling’s Russ Schulte is a Certified Clinical Sex Addiction Specialist, one of only a handful in the state. Russ will work with you using proven treatment methods combined with sound Christian principles. He is clinically trained and highly qualified to help you break the cycle of addiction and vastly improve the quality of your life.

There are a variety of symptoms of sexual addiction, the most common being the inability to control sexual urges, behaviors or thoughts. We want you to live a shame-free, spiritually fulfilling and healthy life. Overcoming sex addiction is a critical part of achieving that. Sign up to meet with Russ, and start recovering your desires for life and true intimacy.
