I provide sex therapy for both individual and relationships/couples.
Sex therapy is a specific type of psychotherapy. There is no sexual contact between a therapist and client(s), nor are there any acts of sexual touching in session. Sex therapy is intended to help you and/or your partner(s) communicate effectively and resolve any problems related to your sexual selves. A fulfilling sex life is important to our overall health and wellbeing, and our relationships. Physical and emotional intimacy are essential parts of your well-being. Sexual issues that are not addressed can slowly eat away at your sense of self, negatively impact current relationships, and/or can lead to problems in future relationships.
Sexual health issues may not be easy for you to think about, let alone talk about! You may not even know exactly what the problems are, so this can make it feel extra challenging to seek out sex therapy. Many people have difficulty in talking about sex at all. As a sex therapist I am non-judgmental and empathetic, and it is my job to help you to feel as comfortable as possible in opening up about this area of you life. As a Certified Sex Therapist (CST) I have extensive training to help you with any concern you may have about your sexuality or sexual relationships. Regardless of how complicated you experience your sexual difficulties to be, I have the skills to assist you in working on them.
Regardless of your sexual preferences and lifestyle- traditional, alternative or somewhere in between, my role in providing sexual health therapy is to help you be more sexually satisfied in a way that feels authentic to you and/or your partner(s).
