Sexuality Concerns:

Arousal and Desire

Our sexual response begins with arousal and desire. If we aren’t interested in sex, or we have trouble getting “in the mood,” then our sex life can stall before it even gets going. Desire and arousal problems are more common than many people imagine. In fact, a lack of desire is the single most common sexual complaint among women of all ages. Whether your arousal/desire concerns are related to medical issues, relationship issues, or something else, we can help you determine both the cause, and a course of action for taking charge of your own libido.

The Intimacy-Desire Connection

One of the reasons that people find partners in the first place is for the feelings of intimacy and connectedness that come with sexual interaction.

But this connection between sexuality and intimacy can be tricky. When sex isn't intimate and satisfying, our relationships can suffer, and when our relationships are aren't working right, our sexual interaction takes a hit in return. As a result, our relationship can suffer more, then our sex life suffers more, and before you know it, feelings of love, intimacy, and desire all start to feel like a distant memory.

If this cycle sounds familiar, there’s a lot we can do. With a little effort, we can understand where, how, and why things got off track. We can develop strategies to interrupt this destructive cycle and to build a fulfilling and sustainable intimate life.

Low Desire

Lack of desire is the single most common reason women seek out counseling for sexual issues—and plenty of men struggle with it too. While there’s no such thing as a “normal” amount of desire, many people "want to want it" more often than they do. If that describes you, there are many ways we can help.

Unbalanced Desire

Perhaps the most common reason couples enter sex therapy is when one wants sex more than the other. This can seem like an intractable problem, but there are lots of effective strategies to bridge the divide and bring you closer together.

Orgasm Difficulties in Women

There are lots of unfortunate myths about women and orgasms, and sometimes a little education is all it takes to feel better. But if your pleasure still isn't all you want it to be, you should know that sex therapy is very effective in helping women achieve their orgasmic potential.

Rapid Ejaculation

Rapid ejaculation (sometimes called "premature ejaculation") is a common problem. Like other sexual dysfunctions, the psychological impact can be just as distressing as the physical symptoms. The exact causes of rapid ejaculation are unknown, but several effective treatment paths are available.

Delayed Ejaculation

While some men struggle with ejaculating more quickly than they'd like, others feel it takes too much time or effort to get to ejaculation, or they can't ejaculate at all. Both physical and emotional aspects can play a part in causing—and solving—this problem.

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (sometimes called “ED” or “impotence”) can be enormously frustrating for both partners, and can really do a job on your self-esteem. But it’s also very treatable.
