What Sex Therapy IS

Sex therapy is a form of couples or individual counseling focused on improving sex and intimacy in the relationship.

Couples or individual seek a trained, Certified Sex Therapist after one or both partners begin to notice problems in their physical relationship. Those problems can range widely, but often include:

Sex Therapy can make heat up your relationship like this couple on the beach
  • Less sexual interest and frequency
  • Too much consumption of pornography
  • Sex outside the relationship
  • Less communication
  • Sexual frustration
  • Unsatisfying sex
  • Preference of masturbation over partnered sex

Sex therapy addresses those problems (and many more), experienced by millions of couples just like you. In fact, if you and your partner never experience one or more of the issues listed above, you are in a very, very small group.

Sex Therapy for Individuals

Sex therapy can also be individual therapy if someone is either not in a committed relationship and/or if someone wants to discuss a sexuality-related concern without their partner.

What Sex Therapy ISN’T

Sex Therapy isn’t sex coaching. Therapists don’t touch their clients, watch couples having sex, or provide “sex tips.”

A Certified Sex Therapist, such as Amy Howard, starts from an understanding that your sexual relationship was once more satisfying, fun and frequent than it is now. Somewhere along the path, you lost your way. The therapist is there to help you find your way back to that sexy, exciting intimacy you and your partner once enjoyed.
