We don't "heal" our clients. Our passion is to constantly and diligently research, test and discover the best methods and tools for healing. We then transfer that learning and guidance to our clients, allowing them to heal themselves. Our success is defined by the satisfaction and improvement of our clients.
We believe that you and your family can find peace and joy again and we would love to support and encourage you along the way.Safety
Safety is essential in the therapeutic process. For that reason we have partnered with highly sought out Chris Giovarelli (Christopher David Experience Design) to design our clinics. Combining our expertise and specialized training with the right interior design allows our clients to feel safe and free during the therapeutic process. In over 600 surveys, 99% of our clients reported they felt safe with us.
For the first time I felt like I was in a place where I not only felt safe and welcome but understood.
I am so grateful to Addo Recovery. I feel that after a lifetime of sexual and loss trauma, Dr. Skinner is helping me to claim my life and understand what has happened to me and the effects that it has had.
I immediately felt at ease coming in for the intake session. Amy was not only empathetic and kind, but had a wealth of knowledge. It reassured me that Addo knows what they're doing and can help.
You guys know addiction better than any other therapy organization I have been to.

I’m Sharon, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Logan, Utah.
I believe the challenges we all face are gifts to guide us to a more authentic, fulfilled life. I have great enthusiasm for the courage of men and women who daringly confront issues that steal joy from them personally and in their relationships. I believe each person has gifts to re-discover and the capacity to create change and re-direct their lives to thrive. I have worked as a victim’s advocate for a local shelter and with police and a sexual assault team, an education specialist for families, a hospice worker, and in residential treatment. I taught a Family Crisis and Intervention Distant Education Class for several years, and served as a guest lecturer for USU. I have presented for multiple community and church groups. I have facilitated eating disorder groups, healing trauma groups, Brene’ Brown Connections curriculum, and addiction groups, I am working with a pilot program for healing trauma with the LDS Church. I have also done volunteer work as an American Red Cross Disaster Response Team and mental health specialist. My first encounter with sexual addiction was with a family member who was manipulated into being a ‘porn star’ I have seen both sides. I have studied the consequences of unresolved lust since 1995. I have compassion and hope for those who struggle with betrayal trauma and those who live in the shadows of addiction. I am a mother of five with a gaggle of grandchildren I adore. I love adventure, celebrations, anything out-of-doors, music, and doing the unexpected.

Dr. Kevin Skinner
Director of Outcomes Research
Hi, I’m Dr. Kevin Skinner. I’m the co-founder and Clinical Director of Addo Recovery. As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I’ve been helping individuals and families for over 18 years. I’ve authored the best-selling book “Treating Pornography Addiction”, and created multiple audio series regarding pornography addiction and relationship intimacy. I also co-founded Bloom (Bloomforwomen.com), an online company for women struggling with betrayal trauma.
As a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists, I’ve worked with and trained other clinicians as a supervisor and presenter. I have created online assessments for more than 250,000 individuals that center on relationship intimacy, betrayal trauma and pornography and sex addiction. These assessments serve as a helpful guide to developing the best treatment for people who want to work toward recovery.
When I am not working, I enjoy running or spending time with my beautiful wife and our eight children. I grew up in Idaho where I learned the value of hard work in the potato fields.
I look forward to working with you.

Therapist Experience Director
Hi, I’m Amy. For the past 15 years my career has afforded me many unique opportunities. I have taught several courses in the BYU Family Science Department, including Preparation for Marriage and Parenting. I published my Masters Thesis in the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy and presented at National Conferences. I have worked at the BYU Women's Services and Resources Center where I counseled many students. It was during my time at the Women’s Services and Resources Center that my eyes were opened to the world of pornography addiction and trauma. In addition, I have spent time working in a residential treatment facility where I counseled adolescents struggling with a wide array of addictions including eating disorders, drugs & alcohol, and sex addiction.
My life has been affected by sex addiction in a most personal way. I know the struggle, shame, and guilt the addict experiences. I also know the pain, confusion, and self esteem battle the addict’s partner suffers. I know that with honesty in a marriage, true intimacy can emerge and relationships can have incredible depth, compassion, forgiveness, kindness, and love. I found it rewarding to facilitate individual change and work with the family system to ensure long-term growth and change. In addition to working with adolescents and their families, I also enjoyed working with couples who were premarital, marital, or blending families.
The greatest defining experience of my life is motherhood. I have six of the most amazing children ever born (of course). My youngest daughter has Down Syndrome, and raising her has taught me countless life lessons.
Director of Yoga, Addo Recovery Lindon
Hi, I’m Sariah. I’m the Director of Yoga at Addo Recovery, a yoga therapist, and yoga instructor.
I graduated from Centered City Yoga with my Professional Yoga Therapist License in 2016. In 2012 I completed my 800 hour teacher training from Inbody Academy. I have been teaching yoga since 2006, and have been able to implement aspects of yoga into my daily life.
Using yoga to help heal from my own betrayal-trauma, I hope to be able to help others remember how to breathe and invite them to step back into their own bodies.
I have two boys, whom I love and adore. I love reading, kettlebells, and anything outdoors.
Director of Mindfulness, Addo Recovery Lindon
Hi, I'm Dallin. I'm the Director of Mindfulness at Addo Recovery.
In my previous life I had much success in several startup companies. I've won awards for design and have published books and poetry. Even with all the success, I found that the life I was living wasn't congruent with who I felt I needed to be. I was unfulfilled. I found Mindfulness 8 years ago.
I have traveled all over the world attending mindfulness retreats and receiving training from the best. With my training I have helped individuals use mindfulness to overcome trauma, addictions, stress, depression and a variety of mental health issues.
Since discovering mindfulness, I have found peace and happiness. I know you can, too.
David graduated from Brigham Young University’s marriage and family therapy program that focuses on relationships and family dynamics. His focus is working with families and individuals who struggle with failed attempts to repair attachment or relationship injuries, which often takes the form of addiction and other maladaptive thoughts and behaviors.
When David has spare time, he enjoys date nights with his wife, nature, camping, reading, and playing basketball. His greatest enjoyment comes from spending time with his wife of 13 years and their five children ranging in ages from 12 to 2. As a family, they enjoy traveling, playing sports and watching good movies.
Hi, I’m Jessica. I consider it a privilege to work with individuals who are struggling emotionally to help them find effective, long-term relief from their difficulties. I believe it takes courage to ask for help. That is why I am committed to providing a setting for my clients that is both enriching and safe. I approach each person with warmth, directness and openness to make sure they feel well supported through the change process. I listen with compassion to what my clients are really saying, as this is a critical piece in creating the space necessary for important work to be done.
I have found that my clients grow as they expand in awareness of their feelings and thoughts through experiential exercises. Creatively responding to difficulties with new insights promotes healthier living and improves the capacity for self-regulation. Mindful choices replace habitual patterns as people learn to pay attention to experiences in the present moment.
I have been working with individuals and relationships since 2002. My specialties include trauma/PTSD, abuse, shame, anger, anxiety, low self-worth, addictive behaviors, grief, unhealthy relationships, depression, dating and divorce recovery.
I look forward to working with you on your journey to conscious living, healing and joy!
Hi, I’m Cameron. I find great purpose in helping individuals battle addiction, trauma and unfaithful relationships. I realize that your fight is delicate and can’t be fought alone. I take my position as a therapist seriously.
My journey began in 2006, while working on an undergraduate degree in behavioral science where I began working at a residential treatment program. I found joy as I connected with the residents as a support, mentor, and positive influence.
Years later, upon completion of my licensure, I was introduced to the Addo Recovery team. I was quickly impressed with the quality of services that they provide for both partners in the relationship. I share their vision and knew that I needed to be a member of the Addo team.
In my personal life, I have come to find great joy in the ordinary moments of each day. I enjoy spending time with my wife and playing with my two kids. I enjoy running, fly fishing, wakeboarding, basketball, and playing the guitar.
Hi, I’m Jenn. I specialize in treating eating disorders, depression, anxiety, shame, difficulties in relationships, trauma, PTSD, grief and loss, self harm, suicidality, addiction, and substance abuse.
For 13 years I’ve been privileged to work with and be a part of helping adolescents, adults, couples and families to find healing and hope. Over the years while working in residential treatment, intensive day programs, and doing outpatient therapy, I’ve been blessed with being able to experience alongside my clients, the journey of recovery and healing, and the process of change. Acceptance, safety, compassion, empathy, understanding and care, are all very important to me. I greatly value doing all I can to make sure those things are felt by my clients in my work with them.
Relationships have always been extremely important to me, and are at the core of all the work I do with my clients. I’m passionate about helping others learn to create and experience real, authentic, healthy connections. I find joy in seeing others recognize their personal worth and strength as they overcome, work through hard, and find meaning. As you come to know, see, and accept yourself from a place of love and wholeness, you will be able to engage more with others and with your life in a wholehearted way.
If you’re feeling hurt, hopelessness, grief, sadness, lost, wanting to give up, confused or stuck -- you don’t have to stay there, there’s a way out. I’m here to walk with you and guide you through that process. Healing, hope, lasting change and joy are real and can be yours.
As the oldest of eight children and the “favorite Aunt” to seventeen nieces and nephews and counting, my greatest joy comes from the relationships I have with my family and close friends and spending time together.
I look forward to working with you in your journey to recovery, healing and happiness.
MS, Marriage and Family Therapy-Intern
Hi, I’m Rachel. Every day I get to work with courageous and amazing individuals like you. I have always been inquisitive which led me on many different paths. Initially, I started my career in Child Protective Services (CPS). After a few years, I realized something was missing. I wanted to continue exploring people’s lives, but to further guide them beyond what my job allowed. I didn’t want to generalize people, to see individuals and their lives as case numbers, so I went back to school to become a Marriage and Family Therapist. I began focusing my work on grief and loss. For 3 years, I worked with couples struggling with infertility, birth parents, adoptees, and adoptive families. I taught classes on human development, grief and loss, and attachment for the State of Oregon.
During my academic journey, I took a year of Neuroscience. I was intrigued by the fascinating brain and its resiliency to trauma. If our brains are adaptable, that means we are! Trauma was not new to me, but I found myself simultaneously re-experiencing trauma that led me to an unexplored area, sexual addiction. I’ve experienced firsthand how therapy can empower people to change their lives by changing their thoughts and emotions, allowing them to make healthy choices after feeling hopeless and stuck. I can empathize with the effort it takes to work through pain and feel whole. When I’m not working, I’m spending quality time with my husband and four children, exploring the world and daring together. Let’s embark!
Author, speaker, and psychotherapist. Brett Williams has over 30 years experience working in mental health care. He is the author of You Can Be Right or You Can Be Married. A love-based solution for couples. Mr. Williams is also the creator of the Date Night Deck. 52 date night ideas. And the author of Xaler and the Dragon. Relaxation tools for the anxious child. Currently, he is creating a new positive psychotherapy called PATTERNING.
I consider being a therapist a privilege. I value creating a space where my clients feel safe and comfortable, where they can open up and face the difficult parts of life. When a person is honest and vulnerable with themselves and their loved ones, I believe it will result in positive change. I was trained and supervised by one of the most respected sex therapists in the world. I also have experience working with individuals and couples experiencing a crisis of faith and recognize the impact that has on couples especially. I have been trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and focus much of my therapy around finding unmet attachment needs and repairing attachment injuries.
When I'm not in session, I spend my time with my adopted 3-year old daughter. We love to exercise together, have dance parties, visit family, and travel to new places.

For the past 10 years I've been working with couples and families to overcome the negative effects that pornography can have on relationships.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and four wonderful children and do what I can to try to escape the Las Vegas heat during the summers.
Hello, I'm Rachel. I love working as a therapist and helping people with changes they want to make in their lives. My approach in therapy tends to be gentle but direct. I believe honesty is critical to the therapy process so I work to be authentic in session so my clients can be comfortable to be real as well. Therapy is unique for every person so initially, I learn about my client's history and goals for therapy and then we will work together to create a plan and reach those specific goals.
I have specialized training in working with trauma and with compulsive sexual behaviors such as pornography addiction. Additionally I work with a variety of other presenting problems including individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, life changes, abuse, eating disorders, and grief, and couple's issues such as communication, intimacy and parenting. I also enjoy working with kids (ages 11+) and their parents.
I grew up on a farm in Idaho where our family motto was work hard and then play hard. I try my best to live that every day so when I'm not working you can probably find me with my nose in a book, attending a play or concert, hiking a new trail with my dog or counting down the days until my family's next trip to Lake Powell.
Hi, I’m Sam Tielemans. My passion lies in working with individuals who have been impacted by the effects of unwanted sexual behavior. I know of the sadness it can cause spouses and their most important relationships. Because of my passion, I have specialized in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), have advanced training in trauma therapy (including EMDR), treating pornography and sexual addiction, infidelity and betrayal trauma.
Over the years, I’ve seen couples and individuals repair damaged relationships and restore individual self-worth to allow them to move into a healthy place and live a fulfilled and connected life. I know you can feel connected again and I look forward to working with you.
In my spare time, I enjoy filming and editing videos, the piano, and spending time with my wife and 1-year-old daughter.
Have you experienced loss, betrayal, rejection, neglect, abandonment, or abuse? Many of us walk around with these hidden attachment wounds making us angry, scared, hurt and ashamed. Attachment wounds impact our relationships with others and with ourselves. In couples these wounds show up in arguments, affairs, addictions, and result in loss of trust, loss of intimacy, and loss of safety. These wounds are painful. They send us messages that we are fundamentally flawed, that we are not enough, that there is nothing we can do to change, and/or that our needs must be sacrificed for the needs of others.
If this fits for you, I am here to help. Attachment wounds are very real and the first step to healing comes through processing them in a safe space and recognizing the ways in which they are impacting your thinking, relationships, and well-being. You are not alone.
