If so, I can help.
Hi. I’m Cory Anderson, a San Diego-based Marriage and Family Therapist Intern, a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist Candidate, and a contributing author to the forthcoming book, The Teen Guide to Recovery from Pornography and Sexual Addiction.
I specialize in helping teenagers and their families overcome the many issues that come with adolescence, including strained relationships at home or school, pornography, substance abuse, excessive video gaming, and poor academic performance.
Over 6 years of experience counseling teens in San Diego
I began my career working working with high-risk teens at a foster care agency in San Diego. Many of my clients struggled with addictions, childhood trauma and serious psychiatric issues. I kept the focus on teens when I started my own practice in 2008 with LifeSpring Center and RCA Counseling.
I have a natural ability to get even the most resistant teens to open-up. My clients also experience significant growth when they follow my practical, solution-focused recommendations.
I also provide counseling for parents, families, couples and individual adults. I am particularly adept at treating addictions and other substance abuse problems.
Specialized training in counseling and addiction
I earned my M.S. in Marital and Family Therapy in 2005 from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. Prior to that, I studied Psychology at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. Since 2008, I have been mentored by Aaron J. Reinicke, one of San Diego’s foremost sex addiction therapists.
I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Candidate. I have received over 150 hours of advanced training in the treatment of sex and pornography addiction from the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP), the leader in sex addiction treatment.
In addition to IITAP, I am a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors, the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health.
