Sexual Problems

  • Are you experiencing a loss of sexual desire?
  • Does sex feel more like work than play?
  • Do you find it difficult to talk about sex with your partner?
  • Are you in a low to no sex marriage?
  • Do you like being touched by your partner?
  • Are past resentments or angry feelings shutting you down sexually?
  • Do body image doubts and concerns interfere with your ability to feel sensuous?
  • Are physical problems or health issues creating difficulties in your sex life?
  • Has the aging process affected the quality of your intimacy?

Did you know that 35-50% of couples struggle with long-term sexual problems (U.S. News and World Report, 2008)? These problems can arise from physical, psychological or relational issues. Some couples experiencing sexual difficulties have not found a comfortable way to talk about these concerns with one another. This lack of communication can compound existing issues and create confusion and misunderstanding. Having a relationship expert to help you clarify and define the underlying problem can bring significant relief to couples who have not been able to create the longed for changes in their sexual relationship.

During the initial interview, I talk to the couple to hear and observe how you interact when discussing your sex life. In addition, some individual sessions may be offered to learn more about each person’s sexual history. At the conclusion of the sexual history, a collaborative treatment plan is developed with the couple.

This plan can incorporate behavioral, psychodynamic, and family systems therapy approaches to help you to achieve your goals. For additional information regarding getting help for your particular sexual problem, you may call for a complimentary telephone consultation.
