"From goal-oriented sex towards pleasure-focused sex."
What exactly is Sex Therapy?
Sexuality is often complicated by life experiences and subjective messages, beliefs, and values learned throughout one's life. These experiences, messages, beliefs, and values become ingrained in us, influencing our perceptions of sex, intimacy, and relationships.
What is your approach to Sex Therapy?
I take a sex-positive, "whole person" approach to working with sexuality and sexual health concerns. There is a natural interconnectedness between mind, body, and emotions, which is connected to and influenced by lived experiences, relationships with others, perceptions of sexuality, and view of self. Together, through this larger, more interconnected lens, you will learn to connect with your sexuality in a more meaningful, confident, and authentic manner.
In an effort to gather a holistic picture of you, your history, and your current goals for therapy, I take a comprehensive approach to assessment and goal setting.
This assessment will consist of:
3-4 session Mental Health, Relational, & Sexual Health History Assessment
50-60-minute Clinical Picture Review & Goal Setting Session
My goal as a sex therapist is to help normalize dialogue about sexuality and intimacy by providing a judgement-free, compassionate space where you are free to be your authentic self.
Areas of Sex Therapy specialization include:
Anxiety During Sex
"Coming Out" Kinky
Low, No, or Mismatched Sexual Desire
Pornography or Masturbation Concerns
Pre-Mature or Delayed Ejaculation
Shame-Related to Sexuality, Erotic Desire, or Kink
Why should I/We work with you?
Contemplating reaching out for sex therapy services can feel intimidating! Society makes talking about sex and intimacy complicated enough. I strive to provide a safe space where conversation about sexuality and identity is normalize, so that we can make space for honest conversation and insightful exploration.
You don't have to go through this alone!
I have received extensive education and clinical consultation in sexuality, sexual health concerns, erotic orientation, trauma-related sexual concerns, and queer-affirmative therapy. I am sex-positive & LGBTQ+, kink, and consensual non-monogamy/poly affirmative.
Does insurance cover sex therapy?
Insurance is not accepted for sexual health-related therapy.
I understand the importance of affordable mental and sexual health services. I provide a reduced rate/sliding scale rate that most will qualify for.
