InnerGold (IGC) was founded by Gordon, S. Bruin. After thousands of hours of therapy with clients, he realized a common thread so he created his proprietary treatment system, which was helping his clients. Several of his clients urged him to get his treatment system out to the world so after much thought and debate over the idea, he added two more additions to his team: Robert S. Robison and Tony Rhoton. Robert and Tony were so amazed with his product and the testimonials they read, that they jumped on board. Robert had his MBA and so he set off to make InnerGold much larger than it was so both Robert and Tony were eager to get the message out, Tony re-branded InnerGold to what it is today and has helped to get this message out to the world. Now, with a world-wide presence we are doing another push to truly help porn addicts find long-term sobriety.
Gordon has put together an online treatment system that will walk an addict through the treatment system in small bite sizes. The reception of this new system has been absolutely amazing.
Gordon S. Bruin M.A., C.M.H.C.
Founder and President of InnerGold Counseling Services Inc. In 1994 he earned his Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Addiction Studies from John F. Kennedy University. For over 22 years he has worked in the addictions field. Just over eight years ago he quietly began a part-time private practice with the intention of helping a few individuals who struggled with pornography/sexual addiction issues. Without any advertising or even his name in the phone book his private practice has exploded by word of mouth. This is due to the remarkable progress his clients have experienced.
Based on thousands of hours of experience facilitating individual, couples, and group therapy sessions specifically dealing with pornography/sexual addiction issues he has created a first of its kind treatment manual that clients are saying is changing their lives. Due to the limited amount of people he can see in his private practice and from the urging of his clients he has created this website and made this manual available to the public.
