Our founder and Men’s Chastity Group leader is Dr. Paul Santero. He has written the following as a way of introduction:
My name is Paul Santero, I grew up in the bay area of California and made my way to San Diego when I attended SDSU in the late 1980’s. I started my career in the field of human services helping people with developmental disabilities. I realized my gifts of listening, critical thinking, insight, encouragement and motivation would be best used in the counseling profession. After receiving my marriage and family therapist masters degree in 2007, I enter the doctorate program of psychology at the Southern California Seminary. I finished my doctorate in 2011 and have been working as a psychological assistant at the Thomas Aquinas Psychological Clinic since 2012.
I apply my knowledge, training and experience in scientifically proven psychological techniques with my Catholic values to maximize the help I can give to people who come to me for help. I specialize in many areas including helping people overcome their sexual addictions (pornography, masturbation, fornication, etc.)
I have an office in La Mesa to help individuals and couples and I also run a recovery group in San Diego for men who struggle with sexual addictions. I focus on three key elements to help free people from their addiction: isolation, traume/ shame and unbalanced brain chemistry.
I have been happily married for 8 years and have 2 beautiful children.
