Sex Therapy

Sex therapy is a form of talk therapy that addresses the relational, cognitive, emotional, physical and psycho-social factors influencing one’s sexual experience. No sexual activity or sexual surrogacy is performed during sex therapy. A Sex Therapist is a licensed psychotherapist with extensive and very specialized training in treating clients with sexual concerns. Sex Therapists have a vast sexual education and therefore have an expanded awareness of sexuality that surpasses personal opinions and cultural narratives.

Creating a safe setting where you can discuss your sexual concerns without judgment, embarrassment or shame is essential in Sex Therapy. Your process begins with a thorough assessment that includes a sexual history. Following this assessment, you will create a meaningful treatment plan with specific goals for your therapy.

Some of the more common sexual concerns treated in Sex Therapy include:

  • Low Libido
  • Mismatched Desire
  • Incompatible Sexual Styles
  • Sexual Pain
  • Erectile Challenges
  • Early Ejaculation
  • Depression & Anxiety Associated with Sex
  • Emotional Intimacy and Couples Communication
  • Body Image
  • Sexual Inhibitions
  • LGBTQ Concerns
  • Aging and Sexuality
  • Sexual Abuse Recovery & Reclaiming Sexuality
  • Problematic Sexual Behaviors
  • Internal Erotic Conflicts
  • Compulsive Sexuality
  • Bridging Spirituality and Sexuality
  • Low Sexual Confidence
  • Sexless or Low Sex Relationships
