Most men and women and adolescent children, and even pre-adolescent children in their youngest years, face, at times, problems which some greater knowledge of sex would help solve. – Alfred C. Kinsey
Sexuality is complex, and may be complicated and emotionally challenging.
Sexual concerns do not exist in a vacuum. They are always connected to other issues within your self and your relationship.
Not everyone needs long term therapy. Many people simply need a safe place, and a few sessions, to talk about sex, to unload, ask questions, receive accurate, non-judgmental information and advice or be coached.
- Are you having trouble with the difficult people in your life?
- Do you want help putting your sex life back into balance?
- Do you want more sex than your partner? Does your partner want more sex than you?
- Are you or your partner having trouble accommodating sexually explicit media in your lives?
- Do you and your partner argue about what sexual activities are acceptable in your relationship?
- Does sex feel like an addiction?
- Has there been a breach of trust with secretive, extra-marital sex?
- Do you have difficulty getting and/or maintaining an erection, even though your doctor said there is nothing wrong?
- Do you have difficulty holding off your ejaculation?
- Whether you’re a woman or a man, is it difficult for you to reach orgasm by any method?
- Are you struggling with questions about your sexual orientation or gender identity?
- Has sex become boring?
- Do you have little or no sexual desire?
- Have you given up on being sexual?
The good news is people don’t have to suffer. We know how to help you enjoy the exciting benefits of sexual wellness. We offer a safe, comfortable and inclusive space in which to examine your sexual and relationship values, issues and concerns. You will be able to examine who you are, where you may be stuck, your stumbling blocks and the issues which interfere with your having a satisfying and rewarding relationship in and out of bed.
Sex therapy includes helping people learn to negotiate their sexual styles, take emotional risks, learn sexual communication and define monogamy or other relationship options, while also examining the paradox of love and desire in a committed relationship. We ask the hard questions.
We will help you understand and incorporate your eroticisms into your relationship. You will learn to use the tools and skills you already have while developing new, more successful relationship strategies. If you are single, you can learn skills to find a partner and to be able to communicate your desires.
We can help couples examine outside affairs with integrity, process accountability, re-envision a post-affair relationship and explore erotic recovery, or also help you decide when divorce is the best option and learn how to leave with honour.
