Is Amy the only one who is scared about dating again? I mean, get real.
In Part II of Episode 15 I’m bringing in Special Guest Kim Litton to talk about re-engaging in dating and what we do when we’ve had a “slip.”
Her laid back and “candid” approach made this episode not only informative but fun!

She is Certified by the State of Florida in Addictions and educated by the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP) as a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist Kim’s approach is to blend authenticity with clinical experience and expertise.
