Dr. Omar Minwalla, Psy.D., Licensed Psychologist

Therapist for sexual health, addiction, marriage problems Los AngelesDr. Omar Minwalla is a Licensed Psychologist and Clinical Sexologist offering highly specialized psychological services related to the assessment, evaluation and treatment of sex addiction, compulsive sexual behavior, patterns of infidelity, integrity and conduct disorders, intimate partner abuse and the resulting traumatic impact and symptomology on others.  He received his doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago and completed his Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Minnesota Medical School Program in Human Sexuality.


Educated and experienced in both the compulsive sexual behavior model (CSB) and the sex addiction model (SA), in 2009, he founded The Institute for Sexual Health (ISH) to promote his innovative sexual and relationship health model of treatment that reconciles debates about sex addiction with his clinical concept of Compulsive-Abusive Sexual-Relational Disorders (CASRD) and his Sex Addiction-Induced Trauma Model (SAITM).  Recognizing the limitations of traditional treatment models for sex addiction, his practice promotes sexual health as a conscious process towards integrity, intimacy and integration. He also advocates for professionals and clients to recognize the importance of treating sex addiction-induced trauma experienced by partners of sex addicts and has been one of the leading figures that has helped the field recognize the harm of using a single-concept of co-sex addiction to treat partners and spouses.


Dr. Omar Minwalla’s non-judgmental and non-stigmatizing approach to human sexuality, patterns of infidelity, integrity and conduct disorders, and other sexual health concerns has provided quality and informed services for individuals and relationships impacted by sex addiction and compulsive sexual behavior.
