Dr. Kelly McAleerClinical Psychologist, Psy.D.
Hi, I'm Dr. Kelly, an empathic, experienced psychologist providing teletherapy in 40 US States. Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy available.
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.

Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
My clients tend to have heard they "should" have more gratitude, self care, courage, vulnerability, love, etc. but can't seem to make it happen. Most of them have been through something and lost their old spark, energy, health, hope, or even desire to be around people. No amount of Brené Brown, yoga, manifesting positive things, etc. has truly helped them deeply care and love again. They're burned out, politics and news are draining them, and they need some help coming back to life.
I value using honesty, humor, and empathy to promote healing. Whether it is with the intention of being a better friend, parent, partner, professional, or person, doing your own work is one of the bravest and most rewarding things you can do. My goal is to make doing the work as safe, goal-driven, and empowering as possible. As you have already taken the courageous step toward healing, I want to invite you into experiencing the grace that comes with awareness of ourselves and others.
