Sex therapy is an opportunity to be curious about your sexual story, from your earliest memories to how you feel about sexuality in your life today. We recognize that individuals and couples come into therapy for many reasons. After careful assessment, we will tailor treatment to the challenges that you or you and your partner bring into the room. Our aim is to help you incorporate all you learn about yourself during our work into a new story, a more authentic and vibrant story of your own design.
