"Sexual health is a part of our humanity. It encompasses the wellness of our physical, emotional, mental and social wellbeing; it is not merely the absence of disease and dysfunction. It can be a healthy part of human connection and growth." - World Health Organization

Our sexual health, in my opinion, is the most important indicator of our mental, physical, social, and emotional health.

Sex Therapy

Sex therapy is a form of counseling intended to help individuals and couples resolve sexual difficulties, such as performance anxiety or relationship problems. Clients generally meet in the therapist’s office. Some choose to attend sessions alone; others bring their partner with them. Session frequency and length usually depend on the client and the type of problem being addressed. It’s normal for clients to feel anxious when seeing a sex therapist, especially for the first time. Many people have trouble talking about sex at all, so discussing it with a stranger may feel awkward. However, most sex therapists recognize this and try to make their clients feel comfortable. Often, they start with questions about the client’s health and sexual background, sex education, beliefs about sex, and the client’s specific sexual concerns.

 

It’s important to know that sex therapy sessions do not involve any physical contact or sexual activity among clients and therapists. Clients who feel uncomfortable with any aspect of therapy should speak up or stop seeing that particular therapist.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy, sometimes called "psychotherapy" or "counseling"  is a process where clients sit one-on-one with a trained therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. Clients will make an appointment to explore specific problems that are keeping them in a "survival state" rather than "living fully" and experiencing life as it is designed to be lived.
