What is Sex Therapy

Sex and intimacy are at the core of human experience. When things are going well, sex may feel easy and natural but when challenges arise it may feel strained and may become a source of pain and frustration.

Sex therapy is similar to regular cognitive therapy which involves discussing and working through prominent issues.

However, sex therapy focuses primarily on the physical and emotional aspects of sex and sexuality. Sex therapy can occur in individual sessions or during couples counseling. Examples of concerns that are often addressed during sex therapy are lack of intimacy, struggles with satisfaction or gratification, self-esteem, body image concerns, or issues with performance and arousal.

Sex therapists also have the expertise needed to address sexual trauma or abuse, gender identity or sexual orientation concerns, pain during sex or intimacy, as well as sexual compulsions or addictions. Sex therapy can help teach individuals and couples how to communicate their sexual needs and desires to enhance their sexual lives.  A more fulfilling sex life can lead to greater overall satisfaction with relationships and life in general. I provide a safe and supportive environment so you can express your thoughts and feelings in a healthy and positive setting.
