What is Sex Therapy?

Sex Therapy is completely talk therapy and it will help guide you to a have healthier relationships. Basically, what that means is, in the office, we talk. You never engage in physical contact with the therapist.

A sex therapist is a “licensed mental health professional, trained to provide in-depth psychotherapy, who is specialized in treating clients with sexual issues and concerns. Sex therapists work with simple sexual concerns also, but in addition, where appropriate, are prepared to provide comprehensive and intensive psychotherapy over an extended period of time in more complex cases” – The American Association of Sex Educators Counselors and Therapists.


Who goes to Sex therapy?

A variety of clients are seen in my office including individuals, couples, and even families. Furthermore, I take special care to work within your values and create a treatment plan that is guided by the goals you want to accomplish. My experience includes working with people from a variety of backgrounds who may have concerns such as:

  • sexual functioning (premature ejaculation, injury or illness related dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, etc.)
  • pelvic or chronic pain
  • low or mismatched desire
  • problems with communication
  • body image concerns
  • sexual shame
  • history of infidelity
  • or just feel stuck in a “rut”

If your are not sure if sex therapy is right for you, please contact me. We can discuss your needs, and I can provide referrals and resources as necessary.


Where is Sex Therapy done?

Therapy is usually done in an office space to provide security and confidentiality. My office is located inside Lake Worth Counseling in the Northwest Fort Worth, Texas area.

 

E-therapy is counseling that is done through a HIPAA compliant digital server. E-therapy can be completed as needed for those who cannot come into the office every session. An example may be a military couple with one person on leave or a spouse who travels a lot for business. You must be a current resident in the state of Texas for me to do online therapy with you. Other requirements include:

  • The first session (intake) must be done in office.
  • At least 25% of following sessions shall be completed in office.
  • There may be certain things that disqualify you from being able to receive online counseling. The appropriateness for online therapy will be discussed in the first appointment.

To book an appointment please contact the office at 817-238-0106 during office hours and request me as your therapist.
