I am not a doctor or a counselor. I’m just a writer with few problems I’m trying to work through. If you want to get some extra help outside of seeing a counselor (which I highly recommend), here are my favorite and most helpful resources:

Recovering From Abuse

EDMR Counseling

Dr Cloud’s Boundaries

Catholic Sexuality

Christopher West’s Theology of the Body for Beginners and the Theology of the Body Institute

Saint John Paul II’s Man and Woman He Created Them: The Theology of the Body

Simcha Fisher’s The Sinner’s Guide to NFP, reviewed by me here

Eve Tushnet’s Gay and Catholic


Dr Cloud’s How to Get a Date Worth Keeping

Arleen Spenceley’s Chastity is for Lovers
