“Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage.”
Many experience sexual difficulties including: low or lack of desire, trouble reaching orgasm, shame or anxiety related to sex, problems maintaining arousal, erectile dysfunctions, premature or delayed ejaculation, vaginal pain, sexual dissatisfaction, or having to cope with a past sexual trauma that impacts present-day. Most clients I speak to feel alone with their sexual issue or hopeless about how these issues impact their relationship(s). It’s very common to feel nervous to talk about these issues and I do my best to provide comfort and support around this dialogue.
Sex therapy never involves sexual contact between me and the client. In session, we explore worries and feelings about sex and intimacy, including your ideas and thoughts about sex and relationships, biology in your body, sexual functioning, and how culture/society/family history impacts sexual functioning. Sexuality is impacted by anxiety, by lacking insight/education/knowledge, past trauma(s), relationships problems, and physical problems. Throughout the process of therapy, we will explore the sexual self as influenced by different variables including the biological, the physical, the psychological, the emotional, the mental, and the spiritual. There will be times when homework is given to aid the process in therapy.
