An important part of your overall well-being is your sexual functioning! Healthy sexual functioning can lead to a more pleasurable experience with yourself or your partner and overall more happiness. Experiencing the rush of pleasure surge through your body is invigorating and fulfilling in so many ways.
Your sexual response cycle feels off.
There are times when you may not be responding the way you’d like – lower libido than anticipated, you feel less in control of your body, you experience physical pain – and it feels detrimental to yourself, your relationship(s), and your health.
Whether you’ve just experienced this for the first time, or you’ve been trying to figure it out for a while now, working with a certified sex therapist can help. You will learn to identify key components of your personal sexual response cycle to heal the places that aren’t functioning the way you’d like.
Break out of dysfunction and jump into healthy action!
Too often, people are taught that sex is not pleasurable, that they should fear it because of unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted infections (STI). This messaging, along with your body’s natural physical response, play incremental roles in the overall personal ideology of your sexual functioning. Learn to break free of the fear-induced sexual scripts and take pleasure in yourself or your partner.
Find your groove. Learn what triggers your dysfunction, understand the interworkings of your body and mind, make a connection between what your mind wants and your body feels. Get formulated Self or partner stimulation homework to address your specific issues and feel empowered.
