Sex Therapy is a therapeutic approach that focuses on cognitive, behavioral, and psychoeducational skills to improve the quality of your sex life. Sometimes, treatment may only require a few sessions focused on correcting misinformation or some of the "myths" about sexual functioning. Other times, treatment may require more work utilizing cognitive and behavioral strategies, such as relaxation training, mindfulness, and challenging negative thoughts about sex or sexual function. Or perhaps it may involve a deeper exploration of the sexual self, your views of sex, or past traumas, which may impact your sexual experience or connection with your partner. Sex Therapy may also focus on finding workable strategies to manage existing medical problems which may impact your sexual functioning.
Referrals for medical evaluations or treatment are available as necessary.
