There has never been a better time to explore the option of Sex Therapy. Researchers and therapists are very excited about cutting-edge ways of understanding and treating sexual problems in individuals and couples.
We now understand that:
- sex is very different for women and men
- there is a very broad range of what is “normal” sexual behavior
- lack of female sexual desire often has little to do with not being attracted to your partner!
If you are having difficulty with:
- Emotional and sexual intimacy
- Sexual desire
- Sexual arousal
- Painful intercourse
- Premature ejaculation
... then we can help!
There are specific, identifiable assumptions—thought patterns— which cause most of our difficulties with sex.
These can come from:
- Negative messages we were taught about sex
- Lack of accurate information about sex
- Being overly-familiar with our partner (very common!)
- Physical changes in our bodies as a result of infertility, surgery, aging, illness or medication side-effects
- Unresolved feelings as a result of trauma, abuse, or pregnancy loss
- Body-shame, self-consciousness or self-esteem
