Kevin Behan has been trained in sex addiction counseling by Compulsion Solutions Director George Collins and is also in the process of receiving his Masters in Psychology at John F. Kennedy University. Having personally been caught in the throes of sexual addiction, Kevin became a client of Compulsion Solutions. About to get a divorce, and feeling desperate not to lose his wife and child, Kevin dedicated himself to no longer being at the mercy of his sexually compulsive behavior. Kevin was ultimately able to make major changes in his life and save his marriage. Kevin’s awareness, compassion, and devotion to the process of change inspired George Collins to encourage Kevin to pursue a counseling career. When he is not working diligently to counsel others suffering from sexually compulsive behaviors, Kevin enjoys practicing martial arts.
