Sexuality is a reality of life. People often seek therapy for issues related directly or indirectly to sex. Talking about consensual sex and sexuality is often part of the experience of therapy.
Through sex therapy, one can address concerns about sexual function, sexual feelings and intimacy — either in individual therapy or in joint therapy with their partner.
Whether the physical symptom presents itself as low desire, the inability to become aroused, achieve orgasm, or the experience of painful intercourse, a sex therapist can help identify the psychological source of the physical symptom.
Sex therapy can be effective for adults of any age, sex or sexual orientation.
Sex therapists tend to have more education and knowledge specific to the physiological processes that are a part of human sexuality. I work collaboratively with physicians to address the entirety of the causes of sexual concerns.
Often, sexual issues are a result of negative feelings, traumatic experiences or even anger, that prevent one from being able to fully participate during sexual intercourse.
I am trained to help individuals and couples enhance their sexual experiences by discovering what emotional issues are creating barriers to sexual enjoyment.
By treating the whole person, psychologically and physically, a therapist can help a client enhance their sexual experience.
Various difficulties related to sexuality may lead people to seek therapy or the issues may simply arise during the course of treatment.
