Relationships are tough, but therapy can make a big difference for couples who are struggling to connect or communicate.
A sexual problem, sometimes called a sexual dysfunction, is a problem during any phase of the sexual sexual act (such as desire, arousal or orgasm). Although many people experience trouble with sex at some point, it is a topic that many people are hesitant to discuss. There are a number of specific sexual disorders, including sexual desire disorders (low libido), sexual arousal disorders (inability to become aroused – erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness, for example), orgasm disorders (delay or non-appearance of orgasms) and sexual pain disorders (painful intercourse, most commonly affecting women). A sexual problem can occur suddenly or develop slowly, over an extended period of time. The reasons for sexual problems can widely vary but may include factors such as fluctuating hormones, aging, stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, diet, medications, illness or past sexual trauma. If you are dealing with sexual problems, a qualified professional therapist can help you identify the cause and help you develop ways to cope.

Individuals seek therapy and counseling for varied reasons: personal growth, relationship problems, life transitions, traumatic experiences, environmental stressors and challenges, depression, anxiety, and more. Individuals also seek diverse outcomes. Through getting to know the individual client, our therapists help clients find solutions to the challenges that bring them to therapy. We tailor our psychotherapy approach to each individual, their specific needs, and their desire outcome.
Do your problems appear impossible to overcome? Or are you unsure about what might be wrong? A creative way to understand what causes you distress, a way that eases the pain and opens possibilities for living a satisfied life, is possible. I treat individuals who want to go beyond managing or coping with symptoms and instead want to develop a deeper understanding and sense of self.
