Marriage and Family Therapist, MA, AMFT
Ropes, and whips, and chains...oh my! No matter your sexual preferences, most of us grew up in a culture where our sexuality was shamed. As adults, we may feel embarrassed or "wrong" for even having sexual desires. Discovering who you are sexually, comes with its own unique anxieties and challenges. Sex is complex; it can be an ecstatic source of joy and pleasure and it can also be a source of boredom, pain, and heartache. A lack of education around sex may prevent you from understanding how your body experiences pleasure. It takes courage to explore your likes, dislikes, and fantasies. There are also relational risks that come with communicating our preferences. How will our wishes be received? Will we be rejected or accepted? Beyond knowing how you like to express yourself sexually, there are also deeper questions we might ask, like, what is the meaning and role of sex in your life? Why do you have sex? How does trust, safety, and security influence your sex life? Therapy is place you can explore these questions, develop more intimacy with yourself, and work through any uncomfortable or confusing feelings surrounding sex.

Sex therapy is a form of counseling intended to help individuals and couples resolve sexual difficulties, such as performance anxiety or relationship problems. I support couples in restoring trust, rebuilding intimacy, and reigniting healthy, passionate sex. Some choose to attend sessions alone; others bring their partner with them. Session frequency and length usually depend on the client and the type of problem being addressed. Sexual health is an essential part of overall emotional and physical well-being. But if you’re experiencing a sexual problem, the last thing you probably want to do is talk about it. However, you aren't alone! 43 percent of women and 31 percent of men report some degree of sexual dysfunction. Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy that also takes into account possible physical problems. For this reason (among others), sex therapy requires special training. When a couple comes in with a sexual problem, we try to figure out how each of them could be contributing to the issue. We examine what is going on, gradually interpret this in the context of their sexual history/experiences, tease apart cultural/societal influences, and come up with solutions Sex therapy utilizes a variety of approaches to treat sexual dysfunction. In addition to the techniques outlined by Masters and Johnson, sex therapy includes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), emotion-based therapy, and couples communication techniques. It’s important to know that sex therapy sessions do not involve any physical contact or sexual activity. I usually assign “homework”—practical activities that clients are expected to complete in the privacy of their own home.
