Sexual Health and Intimacy: Conflict in the Bedroom

Male Sexual Health


Do you have concerns about reduced sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, or premature/rapid ejaculation? Nearly 50% of men experience these issues.  Research shows that these concerns are responsive to psychological interventions.  
 

Are you losing hope that things will improve?

Ben had strong doubts about talking with a
psychologist.  He thought his erectile dysfunction was strictly a medical issue and would only respond to medications.  He also doubted that a therapist could help him in a timely fashion.
 
During ten sessions with me, Ben learned skills that gave him back control of his body and his sex life.  He and his partner also became more knowledgeable about their sexual likes and dislikes.  They stopped feeling anxious before sexual encounters, and their overall communication improved.

Do you experience low sexual desire, low arousal, difficulty reaching orgasm, or pain with sexual activity? 

These issues such as these are common. They can create a relationship crisis.  They can affect every area of your life and your overall well-being.   I can help you improve your sexual experience and increase intimacy in your relationship.  


Do you have a sexual pain condition? 

You may grow to fear and avoid sexual activity and intimacy. It can have a devastating impact on relationships and one's sense of self.  I have extensive experience working with individuals with pelvic pain conditions. I can coordinate with your medial practitioners to provide the most effective treatment.  

Through our work together, you can learn to manage, reduce, and/or eliminate the fear and pain associated with these conditions. 
 

Do you dislike your body or have you experienced a trauma? 


Interruptions in sexual functioning are also common following a trauma or in response to poor body image.  You can reclaim or develop for the first time a sexual identity that is empowering and satisfying.
 

We can help!

Therapy can provide a safe, nurturing, and confidential environment in which to discuss concerns such as health, sexuality, or relationships.  It is a collaborative effort toward positive change.
 

Would you like to improve your sexual health? 

Take some time with me to explore your concerns and you can enjoy a more fulfilling, satisfying, and rich sexual identity and experience.

Andre's Story

Andre was having problems with reaching orgasm too quickly.  He became embarrassed when this happened with his partner.  He’d abruptly get out of bed and refuse to talk about it.  

Andre began seeing me to address his concerns with premature/rapid ejaculation. As we talked, he learned that his abrupt response to his partner was actually increasing his fear of having another episode of premature/rapid ejaculation.   His partner also felt rejected when he would abruptly leave. 
 

He learned to enjoy being close to him physically and emotionally and was OK if sex wasn’t perfect every time.  Through skills Andre and his partner learned with me, they found that the incidences of premature/rapid ejaculation decreased. They no longer feared that sex would result in hurt feelings and fighting and began looking forward to their intimate encounters. 

John's Story

John and Angeline had a new baby girl.  Their interest in intimacy and sex had decreased just as the responsibilities of childcare and work increased.  Though they worried that talking about it wouldn’t help, they agreed to see me in hopes of ending their intimacy problems. 
 
During our sessions, they talked more openly about their intimacy and sexual concerns.  They learned that they’d been expecting “movie perfect” sex.  Soon they became more aware of the great variety of intimate encounters including sensual play, quick sex, romantic sex, mediocre sex, and playful sex.  They also found that they enjoyed each other’s company more.  A new, more spontaneous, and stronger intimate bond developed.
