Kimber Serna will be speaking of the topic of sexual addiction. Topics that will be addressed are sexual addictions and reasons to intervene, risks avoided by early interventions in adolescents, definition and function of executive function, development of sexual addiction, interventions and needed research.

Kimber believes that assisting couples in healing their relationships is the most rewarding work in the world.
In Colorado, Kimber was under the supervision and training of Dr. Doug Weiss Psy.D. in Colorado Springs where she counseled and facilitated group therapy for families and individuals affected by sexual addiction. She is the author of a recovery manual for women who love sexual addicts. This manual is used in Dr. Doug Weiss’ clinic.
Kimber is also an experienced motivational speaker. She has helped many people find their full potential and experience success in their personal and professional lives, through her Quest for Success seminars. Her success has been discussed on Good Morning America, Iyanla, Marie Claire Magazine, and Success Magazine. Kimber has been a leader in the community giving her time volunteering at One Safe Place, Family Dynamics Center, and the Child Abuse Coalition.

Kimber is happily married and has raised two daughters and two sons who are the light of her life. She enjoys fishing and traveling. She brings a wealth of personal and professional experience to her counseling services. As an intern, Kimber’s session rate is reduced and therefore allows many to afford therapy who might otherwise not be able to participate.
