Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
Do you need help with the emotional aspects of sex-related issues? Did you know that sexual problems can have psychological causes or impacts? Just as with general intimacy problems, sex-related issues can stem from many things, like anxiety, past trauma or abuse, negative body image, and so much more. (Please see the notice below to ensure there is not a medical cause first.) Conversely, sexual problems can lead to anxiety, depression, etc.
Talking about sex can feel awkward and uncomfortable at first, but I will help you work on these issues in a supportive, non-judgmental, inclusive, and safe environment. I am ACES (Advanced Clinical Education in Sexuality) certified, and together, we can work through your sexual challenges and help improve your sexual satisfaction.
I can assist you in addressing the emotional and psychological aspects of your specific sexual issues. Whether you're struggling with intimacy, arousal, orgasm difficulties, gender identity or sexual orientation issues, or other sexual challenges, I'm here to help. Our collaborative journey will focus on recognizing and shifting any disruptive thoughts and behaviors impeding your sexual life.
Factors such as your overall health, sexual understanding, past experiences, your perception of sex, and specific obstacles will be key in our collaborative effort to tackle your sexual concerns.I look forward to helping guide you through your sexual journey. The goal is that our collaboration will lead to improved confidence, intimacy, and fulfillment in your relationships and sex life.
I currently provide virtual individual therapy sessions for sexual issues. Sex therapy does not require both partners to be present, and many people benefit from individual sex therapy sessions.
Important notice: Sex therapists do not treat medical or physical conditions that affect sex. You should see your PCP, gynecologist, urologist, etc. for any sexual function issues to see if there are underlying medical causes and to get the appropriate treatment.
