Coming to a sex therapist is a big decision for some people. Why is it a big decision? Sometimes it's because they're embarrassed to say 'I have a problem that's sexual and I really don't know if I can handle trying to talk openly about it with my partner and with a stranger who's a therapist. I help people relax. This is what I do for a living--just like the weather man talks about the weather. Or you to to a mechanic to fix a car. You come to a sex therapist who's board-certified to solve a sexual problem.
Everything is confidential. I maintain complete respect and compassion for the people I work with. I use a sense of humor to solve problems. If you don't come in, that's a bigger problem. If you let something go, it's harder to solve. It's too much water under the bridge. For example, if a couple hasn't had sex in five years, it's harder to solve the problem so it's a real marriage, not just a legality. There may be resentments, health or medical problems, communication problems or other problems that impact their sexual relationship.
I take a multi-variate approach. I deal with the medical, the physical, the mental and the relationship variables to put a puzzle together. Each puzzle is different. I am a puzzle master, I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy and I use my knowledge of medical, physical and mental issues about sex to solve problems.
