Jon Taylor, LCSW, CSAT for an exploration of Mother-Enmeshment and its
impact on men in their relationships.
When a man’s relationship with his mother is characterized by guilt and obligation, that man generally has very little to give- body, mind, and soul to his relationship with his chosen romantic partner. That romantic partner, in addition to feeling like they are competing for his love and affection with his mother, may also find themselves betrayed by a secret sexual life that the enmeshed man creates in an effort to get relief from the burden of enmeshment.
In this lecture, Jon speaks directly to the partners of enmeshed men- helping them understand some of the basic dynamics of enmeshment and their own feelings of compound-betrayal.

I love working with individuals and couples when we are diving into their stories and learning what is important to them and transforming suffering into meaning.
Becoming a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) was an easy choice for me. My life has been affected on multiple levels by sexual/pornography addiction.
I trained with the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals so that I can best understand all of the moving parts in working with addicts and their partners. I have continued training to better help my clients by training to use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and effective methods for helping couples.
