A sex therapist is a psychologist or psychotherapist who is specifically trained to deal with a wide range of issues regarding sexuality. Our highly specialized East Bay Sex Therapists are also trained in couples therapy and attachment dynamics. Our relationship counselors can help you to have a loving, secure and intimate sexual partnership. Many people have a hard time talking about sex in a vulnerable, direct and authentic manner. Some people don’t talk about it at all. Even though our culture is inundated with sexualized marketing campaigns, expectations and social pressure, rarely do people learn how to discuss sex in the context of attachment and intimacy. Not talking about one’s sexual desires, needs, feeling and issues with sex, prevents people from having intimate, healthy and exciting sex lives.
Sex therapy supports both individuals and couples in understanding the nuances of their sexuality and enables partners to effectively talk about sex with one another. Trained sex therapists feel comfortable talking about all things related to sex, gender and sexuality and are trained to help individuals and couples navigate discussions about sex. Sex and intimacy therapy helps couples get to the heart of the problem. In sex therapy, no topic is off-limits and nothing is taboo to talk about.
Despite being surrounded by unrealistic images of sexuality in the media, we live in a sexually isolating society in which people don’t feel comfortable talking to their friends about how they renew their sexual desire, or how to ask for what they want in bed. Men aren’t socially supported in asking their guy friends how to bring a woman to orgasm. Instead they have typically been expected to learn about sex through locker room talk and through pornography. LGBTQ youth may not have appropriate role models for healthy sexual expression, or worse, may not have the safety to discuss it at all.
Sex therapy addresses the root of the issues and helps you develop understanding, compassion and skills to heal together.
Couples often can’t solve these intimate issues on their own because they don’t have the tools needed and because sex and intimacy is closely connected to attachment issues. Our couples counselors and sex therapists can help you to have the satisfying sex life you long for.
