Sex Therapy Services
Sex therapy is a short-term, goal-oriented, psychotherapy treatment for treating a variety of sexual concerns. Sex therapy can address difficulties with sexual function, or problems with sexual feelings and intimacy — either in individual therapy or in joint therapy with your partner. Sex therapy can be effective for adults of any age, sex, or sexual orientation.
Sex Therapy Can Help Many Types of Sexual Problems
Some of the typical issues targeted in sex therapy include:
Sexual desire concerns
Arousal difficulties (including erectile dysfunction, and vaginal lubrication difficulties)
Ejaculating too quickly (premature ejaculation)
Trouble reaching orgasm (anorgasmia)
Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)
Intimicy issues related to disability or chronic medical conditions
Concerns about atypical sexual interests (kinks, paraphilias)
Sex therapy starts with a comprehensive initial evaluation that assesses your medical background (including medical conditions, medication use, and substance use), mental health, social and relationship history, and cultural background. Treatment entails education, anxiety reduction and desensitization techniques, communication training, and a variety of evidence-based cognitive and behavioral interventions.
