Sex therapy is a form of therapy that addresses specific concerns about sexual health and sexual functioning. Sex therapy often involves deeper exploration of the emotional, physical, relational, cultural, and societal factors that influence one’s relationship with their sexuality. My focus as a sex therapist is focused on the treatment of women’s sexual health concerns, particularly those that are intertwined with anxiety, shame, trauma, reproductive concerns, and body image concerns.
I believe that sexual empowerment occurs when you are in tune with your body and able to connect with the needs, desires, and boundaries that exist as a part of your sexual wellbeing. I view restoring a sense of understanding and confidence in your body as a crucial part of this work. In therapy we will work together to increase your sexual satisfaction and create authentic, fulfilling sexual experiences. My goal is to create a safe space for you to build an understanding of what healthy, authentic sexuality means to you.
Topics that we may explore together in therapy include…
Feelings of guilt or shame that accompany sexual experiences
Difficulties with arousal, desire, and orgasm
Increasing your comfort in initiating or taking part in sexual experiences
Promoting relationships that support healthy, authentic sexuality
Building awareness of how your body responds to intimate experiences
Re-building a relationship with sex or intimacy after a trauma or betrayal
Exploring experiences with pleasure and fantasy
Building body confidence that supports authentic, intimate connections
Defining boundaries and communication that support healthy sexuality
