How does Sex Therapy work?
As a sex therapist, I am sex positive and am non-judgmental. I focus on the physical and emotional relationship between those presenting for therapy, then identify the attitudes about sex and the sexual problem. From there, I’ll often recommend specific exercises to refocus the attention and expectations of those involved. Sex Therapists never touch their clients and no sexual acts are ever done in the office or with the therapist present. The sexual contact is between the consenting adults, within the space they decide to express their intimacy.
Sex Therapists have advanced training in human sexuality and sex therapy related treatment. Brian is an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists). Sex Therapy is a specialized field, but covers a huge umbrella of sexual and gender related concerns. Below are some of the issues that sex therapists work with.
