Sex

Therapy

Sex therapy is psychotherapy with individuals or couples that focuses on a particular issue dealing with sexuality. 

There are many myths and misconceptions about what sex therapy entails. The therapists at the Empowering Connections Agency value transparency and collaboration with their clients when addressing all presenting problems, especially delicate issues that are connected to sexuality.

 

Sex therapy may address:

  • Anxiety in the bedroom

  • Arousal Issues

  • Body Image

  • Boredom

  • Depression

  • Desire Differences 

  • Fear of Pregnancy (Tokophobia)

  • Fetishes

  • Gender Identity Development

  • Infidelity 

  • Mixed Sexual Orientation couples

  • Orgasmic Issues

  • Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) or STDs 

  • Sexual Orientation Exploration

  • Sexual Dysfunctions​​

  • Trauma

  • Trust Issues

 

Once entering into sex therapy with your expert therapist, confidentiality and safety are the essential values of the work done at the agency. If you are feeling uncomfortable about the level of disclosure required to receive high-quality therapeutic services, the trust in your therapist and the process may be damaged. We hope that you push yourself to address this with them in a session, but if you feel too uncomfortable to do so, one of our directors can address this with you privately. In some instances, clients try out other therapists before committing to the best fit for them.  

 

The Codes of Ethics for therapist doing sex therapy work with clients can be found via AASECT or the American Association of Sexuality Educators, can be found here. However, the founder of the Empowering Connections Agency is not a certified sex therapist. Libby Diamond is a doctoral candidate at Widener University's Center for Human Sexuality Studies.
