About Vicki Tidwell Palmer, LCSW, CSAT
I am a Psychotherapist and Author in private practice in Houston, Texas. My clinical specialties include:
• Relational Trauma (Intimate Partner Betrayal & Family of Origin)
• Personal and Couples Boundaries
• Partners of Sex Addicts | Survivors of Infidelity
• Sex and Love Addiction
• Meditation and Mindfulness
I offer intensives and workshops throughout the year on family of origin trauma, personal boundaries, and mindfulness practice. I run several ongoing groups including Partner's Healing & Empowerment, Reclaiming Connection for Women, Clear, Clean & Connected for Couples, and Men's Sexual & Relational Recovery
I received my certification as a sex addiction therapist (CSAT) from the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals under the direction of Patrick Carnes, a pioneer in the field of sexual addiction recovery.
In addition, I have trained extensively with Pia Mellody, senior clinical advisor of The Meadows, both in Pia’s family of origin trauma model (Survivors I & II) as well as couples boundary work. I have written a guidebook for partners impacted by sex addiction, which will be published by Central Recovery Press in Spring 2016.
