Sex Therapy involves the weaving of a variety of biological, psychological, and social frameworks to create a web of understanding and intervention to assist sexual function, trauma, orientation, and identity. Whether it is done individually or in the context of a relationship, sex therapy can assist in strengthening the mind-body connection and build skills for enhancing intimacy.
Sex is a topic that is loaded with meaning and can be difficult to talk about. Emotions such as fear, guilt, shame, joy, love, and curiosity often accompany our sexual experiences and sexual identity. These emotions may get in the way of a successful sexual experience, cause sexual problems, or add to the struggle of being and expressing our authentic sexual selves. A sex therapist is a licensed clinician who has been specially trained to treat sex as a normal part of human functioning and to work compassionately with individuals of all genders, orientations, and issues without bias.
