Do you struggle with anxiety, shame, or lack of confidence around sex or your sexuality?
No one should have to cope with feelings of sexual inadequacy, embarrassment, or shame about any part of their sexuality.
Most people will face at least one sexual concern during their lifetime and anxiety can be connected to several sexual concerns.
As therapists, we treat the whole person. Sexuality is an important part of the human experience and a vital part of your overall health.
But for some people, their sexual dysfunction can lead to depression, relationship complications, loss of confidence, and many other negative impacts.
Sex therapy is like any other type of psychotherapy. We treat the condition by talking through your past experiences, your worries, and feelings, and then we provide education and help with various coping skills.
As a therapist that works with couples, I see the impact that sexual issues can have on relationship satisfaction and emotional disconnection.
I teach people to prioritize pleasure because it brings deeper intimacy and connection to themselves and to their relationship.
The goal of sex therapy is to help people move past physical and emotional challenges so they can have a satisfying relationship and a pleasurable sex life - whatever that looks like for you, at your stage of life. Sex means many things. We need to talk about it - we have to have those difficult conversations so people can see just how normal they really are.
Our work together can help you and your partner find a way to have open, honest communication and to work through any concerns or challenges that might be getting in the way of a healthy, fulfilling sex life.
I practice from a pro sex, pro pleasure approach, through a gender inclusive and trauma informed lens.
My passion for sex therapy, helping couples, is deeply connected to my main mission for our clinic - to remove the shame and stigma around sex. I want to give women permission to discover and prioritize themselves so they no longer see sex as solely satisfying their partner. Women have sexual needs too.
Here are a few common things that can be treated in sex therapy: mismatched desire, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, performance anxiety, ethical non-monogamy, low desire, self-acceptance, men's & women's sexuality, sexual pain, painful intercourse, low sex drive.
I often work with couples, if it is a couple issue but will meet with people individually if there are issues like low desire or delayed ejaculation that could be worked on one-on-one.
