Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy that explores ways to enhance or heal an individual’s inability to have sexual intimacy. Problems in physical functionality, desire or miscommunication between partners can have devastating effects on our ability to have an enjoyable sex life. Struggling with intimacy issues is common and 30 to 50% of individuals will experience sexual difficulties during their lifetime. Sex therapy can be done both individually or with a partner. Healthy sexuality is possible. I am in the process of becoming certified as a sex therapist and have completed the educational material for this process.
