Sometimes the thought of seeing a sex therapist can be scary and intimidating. After all, it's talking to another person about your sex life. One might feel embarrassed, ashamed, feel weird, or strange, and have guilty feelings...the negative feelings sometimes associated with sex therapy can feel overwhelming. Rest assured that your privacy is always a priority, just like any other type of therapy. Sex therapy is a safe place where you can talk about those intimidating, daunting, overwhelming things you can't talk to other people about. It is in a non-judgemental setting so you can feel comfortable talking about the uncomfortable stuff! 

Together with your therapist, you then work out coping mechanisms to help improve your responses in the future so that you can have a healthier sex life.

Initial Appointment/What to expect 

During your initial appointments, your therapist will either talk with just you or with you and your partner together. The therapist is there to guide and help you process your current challenge:

  • They are not there to take one person’s side or to help persuade anyone.

  • Start with therapist introduction and build rapport, trust and general "get to know you" stuff to make it easier to chat later when things get a little more serious

  • Couples will introduce themselves and talk about why seeking out counseling 

  • Discuss issues, questions, concerns each partner has and talk about their individual goal for therapy. 

  • Therapist and couple will discuss overall goals and address specific intimacy or sexual concerns

  • Assessment and history taking including relationship history, sexual history, individual history. 

  • There will probably be communication exercises, homework, talk about boundaries

  • We will of course, talk about sex and nothing is off the table
