Revitalize intimate connections and form stronger bonds
Any relationship requires dedication, compassion, and understanding. This is especially true when it comes to marriages and common-law relationships. Many couples who struggle sexually tend to have a harder time maintaining a strong bond with one another, as sexual intimacy is an essential part of any healthy relationship. We have helped many couples restore the special connection they share from their sexual intimacy — we encourage you to reach out to us today for compassionate, expert guidance if you are struggling with any aspect of your sexuality.
A sexual relationship can suffer for too many reasons to count. However, some examples include difficulties with arousal, concerns over judgment or self-judgment, reduced pleasure or desire, or the development of different intimate needs between partners. Sometimes, we may not feel that our partners are listening to us or wish to meet these needs, which can lead to a breakdown of the intimate connection shared.
We may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years. It all depends on the nature of the therapy and the circumstances at hand. Our aim is to help you re-establish intimate satisfaction with your partner, acting as an essential step towards strengthening your relationship.
Trust and Triggers
In any relationship, it is essential to be able to trust in your partner, and not merely for everyday needs. Trust can play a significant influence on how complete both partners feel. However, trust needs to exist in other areas of the relationship as well, covering everything from honesty about spending habits to following through on commitments. If there is distrust in a partner, be it based on a sexual-related trigger or otherwise, the other may “shut down” or become less drawn to them. The lack of intimacy resulting from this can create unwanted tension and result in emotions blowing circumstances out of proportion, forming a barrier that is difficult to break without the help of professional sex therapy.

What to Expect
Developing a clear and firm understanding of what is triggering your current sexual issues is a critical part of the sex therapy process. We will work closely with you to help identify contributing factors and establish a way to address them in a positive, unbiased frame of mind. In some cases, these problems are not related to sex whatsoever, as stress and other emotions can sometimes drain our sexual energy without our knowing. Other times, resolving relationship struggles can mend intimacy issues. Our aim is to bring these underlying issues to the surface, identify and address them, and collaborate with you and your partner on how best to move forward. There is no shame in reaching out to a sex therapist — we have the experience and ability to help prevent your relationship from potentially failing. If you and your partner are experiencing sexual difficulties, it can be for a variety of reasons. There is no need to face them alone if the stresses are too significant.
