Words to grow by...


For years I have been collecting sayings, hints, thoughts and strategies for growth. I have a booklet of them I often give to my clients. Finally I started a blog to share them more widely. Take a look!



Notice:  I have closed my office for the purpose of retirement.


I retired from practice in mid-December, 2017.  If you are a previous client wishing to contact me regarding your records, please go to the comments page.  Thanks.

Welcome to

Treatment for sex addiction, mid-life changes, relationship problems, and the need for increased motivation


A healthy mind and life is something we all want. Life is not supposed to hurt--it is meant to be a positive, meaningful experience despite difficulties that come along. Whether it's admitting a crippling problem with sex addiction, a sense of frustration and emptiness in ones mid-life years, relationship problems, or a lack of motivation for important goals, psychotherapy can help.


My name is David Bissette, and I am a clinical psychologist in the Washington, DC area. Often getting better doesn't take "forever" or cost a fortune. If you've been experiencing difficult circumstances and painful feelings, then these pages may help you decide what type of help you need and where you can find it.


If you live in the Washington, DC metro area and want help with what is important in your life, give me a call. We can work together.

About Sex Addiction

I deal with a wide range of human problems in my practice, and I enjoy the variety. In the area of human sexuality I often work with sexual addiction. To the left you'll find an interview on Fox TV in DC about sex addiction that I did after the Weiner scandal.
