Sex Therapy

Sex Therapy is a specialized type of psychotherapy for individuals or couples wanting to improve their sexual functioning or satisfaction. I create a safe space that promotes sex positive discussions regarding sexual health.

What is Sex Positive?

Sex Positive focuses on the respect of each client’s unique sexual profile. Sex therapy takes a stance to help clients define their own sexual identity and make their own choices that are healthy and pleasing to their sexual functioning.

The Principles of Sexual Health:

  1. Consent
  2. Non-exploitative
  3. Honest
  4. Shared values
  5. Protection from STIs/STDs
  6. Unwanted pregnancies
  7. Pleasure

Sex therapy target not only the behavioral symptoms, but also the emotions and feelings that may be creating a blockage to sexual functioning. Often, sexual problems are the result of both physical obstacles and emotional issues. I will recommend clients to seek medical attention to rule out or confirm any underlying medical diagnosis. While in therapy, individuals and couples will develop a treatment plan that brings relief, release, pleasure, and a more concrete understanding regarding their sexual health.

There are various reasons why individuals and couples seek sex therapy. Here are some examples of sexual health concerns:

  1. Sexual desire, arousal, or interest
  2. Orientation or identity
  3. Past unwanted sexual experiences
  4. Sex after medical concerns/diagnosis
  5. Impulsive or compulsive sexual behavior
  6. Erectile functioning concerns
  7. Trouble reaching orgasm (Anorgasmia)
  8. Painful intercourse (Dyspareunia)

Sex Positive can give clients better understanding, and tools needed to cope with their sexual concerns in a healthy way. If you and/or partner think sex therapy may help, then let’s work together to get you and/or your partner back to the life that has you feeling and performing to your optimum level of functioning.
