Sex is a basic human need. Whether we are working with a partner or alone, sex can provide intimacy, love, connection and communication. If you have a healthy sex life, sex occupies about 10% of the relationship. However, if there is any sort of sexual difficulty or dysfunction, sex occupies about 90% of the relationship.
Why would someone need sex therapy?
- Readjusting Sex Life after Transitions (having children, menopause, injury, etc.)
- Low/ No Desire
- Pain During Sex
- Sex Education
- Desire Discrepancies
- History of Sexual Abuse or Trauma
- Lack of Orgasm
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Sexual Identity Issues
- Sexual Orientation Issues
Sex therapy can be done on an individual basis or as a couple, depending on what the issues and needs are.
Sometimes a couple just needs a little bit of a refresher to help reengage with their passionate. For others we may need to start at square one with some good old sex education!
Perhaps one partner desires more frequent sexual interaction (desire discrepancy), or because life can get crazy, your sex life has been put on the back burner. Maybe one partner is having trouble performing sexually (erectile dysfunction, pain during sex, premature ejaculation, low/ no arousal)? All of these issues can be addressed and worked through in sex therapy.
I see many individual clients who are newly single who would like to explore their sexuality. It is very important to understand that your sexuality does not belong to someone else. Whether a widow or widower, recently divorced or single and ready to mingle, being well informer and comfortable with your sexuality is not only healthy but necessary for fulfilling and beautiful life.
Due to the many demands placed on women in our society, we tend to become disconnected from our bodies. This can be a result of low self-esteem, body shaming, our societies unattainable idea of what beauty is, trauma, or sex-shaming. My hope is that we can work together so you can reconnect to who you are mentally, emotionally, sexually and spiritually.
