The maintenance or distribution of any list of clinicians who chose to indicate that they provide services to individuals with sexually abusive behavior problems does not constitute an endorsement or verification of the credentials of those individuals by MATSA or any of its members. Inclusion on a resource directory of providers on the MATSA website does not constitute a license to practice, a measure of competency of the professional whose name appears, or any form of endorsement. Similarly, non-inclusion does not signify a failure to meet such criteria, as well. Neither MATSA nor its membership bear any responsibility for the quality of services provided by individuals and/or agencies appearing on this list; this remains the responsibility of the individual provider.

Description of work provided and philosophy of working with this population:

  • Our treatment program has one basic philosophy – that of treating all patients with respect and kindness. That is not to say that we do not confront the patient on his/her dysfunctional attitudes and behaviors, but always in the context of a strong treatment alliance with the patient. We utilize evidence based practices in all aspects of our work.
