“Sex addiction has grown like a grass fire over the past decade as an issue that is now being taken seriously. Cititherapy uses experiential approaches to treat this disorder in ways that can facilitate the kind of mind/body healing that can help those who are reachingĀ for recovery, to heal themselves and mend broken relationships. Bart Mandell has been a part of this field from the beginning and is one of those unique individuals who truly understands how to identify and treat this disorder.”

“Sexual addiction is emblematic of the rapidly changing sexual mores of our culture and the paradigms of what constitutes healthy sex. Many people struggle with problematic sexual behaviors as a result of growing up with shameful sexual messages, sexual trauma, or having gotten caught in the web of highly accessible sexual content. Regardless of where the problem started, singles and couples who are seeking help from the effects of destructive sexual behaviors will find Cititherapy a much-needed resource. Dedicated to taking an informed and thoughtful approach to the treatment of sexual addiction,Bart Mandell, LCSW-R provides an excellent skill set for assisting partners and sex addicts alike.”

“I have been privileged to know Bart Mandell professionally for more than two decades. In that time, he has risen to be among the great lights of the recovery community. Bart’s thumbprint is all over the national curriculum and conversation about sex addiction. I would trust Cititherapy with a family member as there simply is not a better outpatient treatment available. I am delighted to have Cititherapy as a resource in the New York Metropolitan area.”
