Sex therapist often hear the above statement. Breaking through the sense of shame many people feel towards their sexuality is often the most liberating aspect of sex therapy. Being able to acknowledge and discuss one’s sexual needs with a partner is a huge breakthrough for many couples. It is quite common for people to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable when they begin Sex Therapy. However,with repeated exposure to the sexual issues at hand along with the non-judgmental encouragement of the sex therapist, the client usually feels more at ease and can discuss any aspect of their sexual experience.

Sex Therapy is a streamlined form of psychotherapy that focuses exclusively on the sexual functioning of an individual or a couple. Sex Therapy is the preferred modality for treating the psychosocial aspects of sexual dysfunctions such as erectile problems, painful intercourse, premature ejaculation, sexual aversion, lack of sexual desire, and difficulty attaining orgasm.

Before Sex Therapy begins, the client should undergo a complete physical examination by a doctor to ensure that any health issues contributing to the sexual dysfunction have been addressed. Many people do not realize that common diseases such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, hypertension and depression can interfere with sexual functioning. After any underlying medical issues have been addressed, the doctor and sex therapist should work together to address the medical and psychological components simultaneously.

A Sex Therapist may work with many different issues depending on the training, experience and interest.
