Wendy Cornett

“Sexual anorexia is the active withholding of spiritual, emotional and sexual intimacy that a person has with their spouse and with others,” clarifies Theresa Marie Abec, Sex Addiction Therapist at Serenity Health and Wellness Center in Maumee.

Other red flags include always blaming their spouse for most things and being highly critical of their spouse.

“It’s like they’re living as roommates,” Theresa added.

Theresa is a board-certified clinical counselor specializing in sex addiction recovery therapy and is currently welcoming new patients looking for assistance with their mental, physical and emotional life goals.
