Sex Therapy

Romantic Couple

Sexuality is an experience of connection. It is how we express ourselves erotically—to others and ourselves—that lets us know our uniqueness is felt emotionally and physically.

Are You Worried about Your Sex Life?

  • Are you too ashamed to talk about intimacy issues with your friends, who all seem to be having the best sex ever?

  • Are you anxious about bringing it up with your doctor?

  • Are you confused about your gender identity or sexual orientation?

  • Do sexual images from movies or porn sites remind you of your inadequacy?  

  • Are you embarrassed that it’s been years since you had partnered sex? 

  • Are you afraid to have sex because of low desire, painful intercourse, or orgasmic issues?

  • Are you scared of romantic relationships because of sexual disorder(s) or past sexual trauma(s)?

  • Are you scared of sexual intimacy due to illness-related issues?

  • Are you expecting your partner to know everything about you sexually?

  • Are you struggling with your partner navigating non-monogamy?

 

Lack of sexual confidence during any stage of life can be an isolating and disturbing experience. If sex is not working and you have nowhere to turn, you may believe there is something wrong with you. If you’re single, perhaps you’d worry you’ll never be sexually compatible with anyone. Or, perhaps you’ve been avoiding intimate connections with others because of intense feelings of shame and inadequacy. If you’re partnered, you may feel lonely, and rejected by him/her/them. If you’ve experienced sexual trauma in the past, that can dramatically alter your sense of safety, desire, and arousal, making you feel scared, lost, or out of control.

Sexual Intimacy Issues are Very Common.

If you are experiencing problems with sexual performance, communication, gender identity, asexual orientation, and sexual traumas, you are not alone. Because the topic of sex is such a highly stigmatized topic in our sex-negative culture, a lot of us struggle with sexual shame due to limited access to sex-positive and scientific information about sexuality.

Stress can also impact a wide variety of things, including mental and physical health, which can affect both sexual desire and performance. Our generation has been experiencing higher and higher pressures in our professional and personal lives. 

Regardless of your age, gender, ethnicity, size, ability, orientation, religion, and whatever sexual issues you may be encountering, sex therapy and sexuality education can help educate and cultivate a sex-positive culture.

What's Sex Therapy

Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy or talk therapy. Sex therapy views sexual issues as being resolved by specifically addressing them, rather than by the assumption that when the individuals in a relationship work out the relationship issues, the sex will just fall into place. Sex therapy is designed to help individuals and couples address medical, psychological, personal, or interpersonal factors impacting sexual satisfaction. 

Our trained sex therapists/sexuality educators will teach you about human sexuality, the reality, and research, not to show people sexual activity. Sex therapists are highly trained professionals who are licensed to practice psychotherapy but we do NOT touch clients ( physicians, nurses, midwives, and physical therapists do ). 

​Sex therapy is more than Sensate focus and Pelvic muscle exercises. We will explore personal history, and biological components of sexuality together. We will address therapeutic aspects of sex. We will teach mindfulness and relaxation techniques to make sure safety needs are being met first. We will also explore ways to communicate about sex and your sexual needs. We will help you to expand the sexual repertoire, and re-evaluate and challenge irrational thoughts, beliefs, and myths about sex. We will also explore ways to strengthen your relationship with your own body and your partner(s) to make the sexual experience more pleasurable for you and your partner(s).
