Pure Desire clinical counseling offers a unique blend of biblically based and clinically informed treatment for individuals and couples who are impacted by unhealthy and relationally harmful sexual behavior.


The Pure Desire clinical teams are certified through the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). Each clinical team holds one of two certifications:

  • Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT)
  • Pastoral Sex Addiction Professional (PSAP)


Each Pure Desire clinical team has years of pastoral ministry experience. Our clinicians counsel from a biblical and theological perspective. This allows our clinical staff to speak to the spiritual aspect of sexual addiction.


Pure Desire counseling offices are located in Troutdale, Oregon, and provide a safe, quiet, and secure setting to receive treatment. For those who live outside our service area, Pure Desire offers clinical counseling via secured online video conferencing. Over 75 percent of our counseling sessions take place via video. As a ministry, video conferencing allows us to expand our reach to help hurting people across the U.S. and around the world. 


The Pure Desire Counseling Program works to bring recovery and restoration from sexual addiction and intimacy disorders within the Christian community. Clients will learn to develop sexual, emotional, relational, and spiritual health through the treatment program.


The Pure Desire Counseling Program requires:

  • A 12-month commitment to the program
  • Two 1.5 hour sessions per month
  • Participation in a Pure Desire group
  • Commitment to weekly assigned work
