Sex is deeply metaphoric to the relationship we have with ourselves and others. When we express ourselves sexually, we are almost always expressing a very deep part of ourselves. Sex is a complicated process. We have to be connected to our bodies, to our heads, and to another person all at the same time in the right amounts. All while our partner(s) are balancing the same complex tasks. I’m currently in the process of becoming a Certified Sex Therapist to better support couples.

Sex therapy can be an individual or couples endeavor and focuses on difficulties centered on sexuality and relationships. Views on sexual behavior can be as varied as our family, educational, and social experiences, and as a result, we can feel shamed, embarrassed, and confused regarding our sexual desires and interests. I strive to normalize a wide range of sexuality while assisting individuals in managing performance, communication, and anxiety due to misinformation.

Sex Therapy: is a specialized type of psychotherapy — a general term for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health professional. Through sex therapy, you can address concerns about sexual function, sexual feelings and intimacy, either in individual therapy or couples or family therapy. Sex Therapy is similar to other forms of talk therapy, with the exception that your therapist is well versed and trained to treat sexual issues.
