Jessica VerBout, M.A., LMFT, CST has been working in the field of mental health therapy since 2008 and had started her career working with developmentally delayed sexual offenders and expanded to working with normal functioning offenders since. She has worked at a few of the local sex offender treatment programs in her career and has extensive experience running group therapy for all types of male sexual offenders. She has also focused her private practice in St. Louis Park to the treatment of individuals with Out of Control Sexual Behaviors (“sex addicts”) and those who have had issues with non-consensual sexual behaviors and/or thoughts, among typical mental health concerns. Helping individuals with these sexuality concerning behaviors learn healthier modes of stress management and sexuality, and trying to help keep the community safe through this learning process, is what drives Jessica to continue to work with this population.
