Sex Therapy

What is Sex Therapy?

Sex Therapy is a specific kind of therapy that focuses on sex/sexuality, and provides you with a space to share and explore this sensitive area. In Sex Therapy, the therapist does not have sexual contact with clients - they discuss sexual issues through talk therapy. Clients can experience change through having a space that fosters compassion, creates insight, and often includes specific behavioral interventions for the individual or couple to do at home between sessions.

In this type of work, you can explore your thoughts and feelings openly in a way that you might not have done before due to shame, fear, or our society's stigma around sex. With specializing in Sex Therapy, Ben can provide you with a space where you don't need to worry about being judged - where you can really explore what you're struggling with, or what's getting in your way. No matter the topic you want to explore, he feels privileged and able to warmly help you at your own pace towards feeling more confident sexually.

Why do people come in for Sex Therapy?

Many couples struggle with sex, largely due to the stigma around it in our society, and how remedial sex education can be. This lack of education and discourse can lead to a lot of nasty dynamics - expectations around sex that aren't realistic, beliefs about ourselves or our bodies that create anxiety and shame, among numerous other issues. We can also have a tough time if our partner is different from us sexually, and we don't know how to talk about it or how to come together.

Whatever the difficulty is, couples might go to Sex Therapy so that they can have a knowledgeable clinician who is comfortable talking about sex. By addressing these differences and issues in this space, we can create more openness, understanding, intimacy, and ways for you to work on your sexual relationship so that it's more satisfying and exciting. This process will also create more comfort in talking about sex, so that you can communicate about these things outside of sessions

Individuals can also greatly benefit from Sex Therapy. Ben often works with men around erectile dysfunction and performance anxiety, which can take a significant negative toll on their self-esteem. It can also be a space where you can explore more about what you like - often we might feel too uncomfortable to talk about that with our partner, and if that's the case, exploring that more individually can be a great first step. 

Whether you're an individual or a couple, focusing on and working through sexual issues can be extremely intimidating, but made easier by having such a nonjudgmental space. Hopefully through that work you can create the sex life that you deserve!
