About Wendy Conquest

I am Director of SACC Corp. located in Boulder, Colorado treating sex addiction. I have worked with hundreds of men and women who struggled when viewing pornography or other sexual behaviors that got out of control. Addiction can be a big label, and, I have found any form of infidelity wreaks havoc on a relationship.  Couples, and let’s say people in general, are looking for close, trusting, creative, and comfortable relationships.  We yearn to be known, respected and loved by others. It is my goal to assist in this journey of bringing awareness, cultivating kindness, and creating connection.

I have written the book Letters To A Sex Addict which is a collection of fictional letters, inspired by real life, that viscerally expresses what the partner of a sex addict is thinking and feeling. Readers resonate with the emotional and psychological strain as well as grasp the hope that, with help, this disaster can be overcome. This book is designed to be easily read under stressful and traumatic circumstances, and is an insightful, gut-wrenching, and ultimately realistic journey from insanity to healing. Letters is also meant to be read by the addict to understand and empathize with what the partner is thinking and feeling. This book is currently being used in treatment centers and groups around the country with spouses of sex addicts.

I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and CSAT Supervisor, and have served as Director, Clinical Director, and Clinical Supervisor for treatment facilities along the front range of Colorado.  I am trained in EMDR, Brainspotting, and Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP), and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) which are all cutting edge modalities to treat the roots of sex addiction and the resulting trauma from being the partner or child of a sex addict.

Working with couples for over seventeen years, I have found that there is a definitive moment: a time in the past that demonstrated a lack of caring, concern and/or connection. From that moment a resentment took root and despite attempts to explain and resolve the situation, it has festered and unfortunately spread to other or all areas of the relationship. Many other factors may fuel problems. With the most current research working with attunement, attachment, and trauma, we gently explore and detect where things went astray and restore trust, desire, and connection. Please contact me today to discuss what is challenging for you.

Wendy Conquest Success Stories

Partner Healing From Sex Addiction

"During the most traumatizing period of my life, Wendy was my rock. Over the months and years, she helped me to process my shock, my fear, my anger, my sorrow, my grief, my new reality. She helped me to remember me, and to recognize myself when everything else in my life was unrecognizable. Because of her kind and caring and straight-forward counseling approach, because of her empathy and humanity, I kept moving through it and forward. And, I'm living life today happier and healthier than I've lived it in years. I remain and will forever be grateful to Wendy for giving me hope."

So Real, So Heartbreaking, So Helpful

“Having personally been through the experience described by the letters in Wendy Conquest's book, I can affirm how realistic as well as eloquent and painful they are. If you have been betrayed by a partner's repeated infidelity or online sexual activities, by the time you finish these letters you will realize you are not alone, that your feelings are normal, and that that there is hope for you to get beyond the pain of betrayal and to carve out a better life for yourself. I highly recommend this short and very useful book.” ~ Jennifer Schneider, MD, author of Back From Betrayal: Recovering from his Affairs and Sex, Lies, and Forgiveness: Couples Speak on Healing from Sex Addiction
