What is Sex Therapy?
As defined by the Human Sexuality program at New York University, "A sex therapist helps you define the type of sexual dysfunction that’s affecting you and addresses the resulting sexual distress. Problems with sex are often compounded by strained communication between partners. A goal of sex therapy is to enhance communication using a behavioral approach to resolve those problems.
Sex therapy consists of discussions in your therapist’s office, along with special exercises designed to make you feel more relaxed in your sexual interactions. These exercises are practiced in the privacy of your own home. The goal of sex therapy is to maximize the potential for satisfaction, pleasure, and happiness."
In my practice I like to challenge what's "normal", investigate theories my clients have about sex, and help create new ideas and meanings my clients have about their sexuality.
As safety and security guide the way, we explore aspects of sexuality that may be scary to venture into alone.
