Low Desire & Mismatched Desire
Many couples find themselves not having the kind of intimacy they’d like. One person may have low libido or low desire or simply have less desire than their partner. Our therapists can help you figure out why, and develop a plan to enjoy your sex love more.
Problematic Sexual Behaviors ("sex addiction")
You suspect that your sexual desire is more than the average person. Or, your sexual behaviors are causing problems in your relationship. But you're not sure it's a "problem" exactly.
Signs your sexual behaviors are becoming "problematic"
Your sexual behaviors are likely problematic if they involve:
Non-monogamy/ Other relationships
Not every couple or individual looks like same. We are happy to work with concerns related to: swinging, polyamory, open relationships, kink/fetishes, and LGBT.
Some concerns you may have related to this:
*Wanting to explore a new kink/relationship structure individually or in a relationship
*Interest discrepency in a relationship (one of you wants to explore a kink and the other doesn't)
*Wanting to learn how to best navigate a new relationship structure like swinging, poly, open relationships, etc.
*Wanting to explore a kink that feels concerning to you.
*Wanting to explore new sexual desires of any kind
We also realize you may not be experiencing any concerns related to these things but simply want a therapist competent in these relationship structures to help you navigate other concerns in your relationship - we are happy to help there too!
Gender Health Services
We are happy to help clients explore gender related concerns and help with letters of support related to this. Our therapists are trained in working with these issues and enjoy helping clients who may find this a confusing or difficult to navigate topic.
Are you just finding out about an affair or been trying to work past betryal in your marriage for awhile now? When an affair or betrayal of any type occurs in a relationship It can be difficult to cope. Whether individually or in a couple, we have therapists that specialize in helping people work past affairs and into a healthy place.
Many women experience sexual/genital pain for various reasons. There are both medical and psychological reasons for this. We can help you figure out what kind of pain you are having and help to make a plan to manage it. Often this will involve referrals to other trusted providers. We want every client to know that they do not have to experience pain with sexual intimacy and there is hope!
Erectile Dysfunction Premature Ejaculation Delayed Ejaculation
Whether it be erection issues or orgasmic issues (ejaculating too quickly or not at all), we can help. For men under the age of 40 these issues are more than likely psychologically based concerns and can be helped through cognitive-behavioral therapy. For any man it is good to rule out medical concerns first, and then explore psychological factors.
Maybe you do not have a specific sexual concern you need resolved, but you want to increase overall sexual enhanement in your relationship. This can include:
*Increasing passion in your sexual relationship
*Enhancing emotional intimacy in order to enhance physical intimacy
*Explore new ways to enrich your sex life
*Learn how to communicate more about sex
Sexual Dysfunction While Trying to Conceive
Research has found that couples trying to get pregnant are more likley to experience sexual dysfunction. This can be struggles with desire, arousal, or ejaculation. We can help you explore options for treatment including specific coping techniques to take the stress and pressure out of sex at the time in your life where you need it to "work" the most!
What to Expect in Sex Therapy
What you can expect from marriage therapy/couples therapy with us:
A Plan of Action: After meeting you and gathering your history and goals for therapy you can expect a plan of action tailored to your specific needs.
Feedback: We want you to leave our sessions feeling like you were heard, but also that you received feedback on how to proceed in the most healthy way for yourself or in your relationship.
Homework: We believe your work will be more effective and efficient if you can follow specific action steps outside of the therapy room. These action steps and behavioral exercises will be provided to you by your therapist.
Fun: Can therapy be fun? It can't always be but we hope we can add a little humor and lightness when appropriate.
