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.

    • At RUTH E LEWIS PHD LLC it is believed that any effective treatment begins with a respectful, confidential, trusting therapeutic relationship. It is from that point that an initial assessment and treatment planning can be accomplished. Treatment is evidenced based and research informed but not a “cookie cutter” approach. Each client is viewed as a unique individual. Together, we unravel the factors that play a role in your problematic or compulsive sexual interests, behavior, or offending. Together, we figure out how to keep the risk of relapse as low as possible in an effort to facilitate increased self esteem, healthier relationships, and a fulfilling life. Community safety and clients’ recovery go hand-in-hand. So treatment is a #1 priority. Testing, specialized individual psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral/behavioral treatment, group therapy, treatment consultations, and referral services are provided on-site. Referrals to the most well respected psychiatrists, who specialize in treating sexual interest and behavior problems, are made as clinically indicated. When necessary, referrals can be made to the best psychiatric hospitals
