A SAFE ENVIRONMENT TO DISCUSS AND MANAGE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF A FULFILLED LIFE: SEX.
Communication around sexual issues can be hard. Therapy creates a safe, non-judgmental environment that encourages self discovery, sex education, skill building, and personal exploration.
Issues around sex are complex and often involve biological, psychological, and/or sociocultural factors. Sex therapy can help individuals and couples address a wide range of issues, including:
- Different levels of desire
- Sexual compatibility
- Erectile dysfunction/impotence
- Painful intercourse
- Intimacy after children
- Body image concerns
Whether you are in short-term therapy focused on specific goals or therapy that delves into long-standing patterns, taking a holistic mind-body approach to sex therapy is essential to address the unique needs of the individual or partnership.
How can you manage all of these complex and interconnected issues? Specific sex therapy can help.
Therapy offers an opportunity to create a safe space to truly explore how these emotional, mental, and physical challenges can impact you and your relationships. Together we work towards reframing and healing so that you can have a happy and healthy sex life.
