Therapy Specialities Sex & Intimacy


Reaching your relationship potential

A fulfilling intimate relationship includes not only mutual sexual attraction but trust, honesty, openness, shared values, and interests. Respect and humor are also important aspects of a healthy intimate relationship.

When couples struggle with life stressors including financial hardships, parenting, work-related stress, health issues, or mental health concerns, an intimate relationship which seemed great in the beginning may seem to have evaporated. There is hope.

It is natural that we are attracted to our partner initially mostly on a physical level. Developing a strong, satisfying emotional and mental connection can sustain that physical attraction and renew intimacy in a struggling relationship.

Working with a therapist, individuals or couples can explore issues which negatively and positively impact their ability to trust and find joy in their intimate relationships. Many couples experience a renewed sense of satisfaction and happiness as they work to incorporate communication skills which facilitate a greater sense of intimacy.
