Reasons for Sex Therapy
Men's Sexual Concerns
Sex therapy can help men experiencing
- Erectile Dysfunction and problems with orgasm
- Performance anxiety
- Body image issues
- Decreased desire/libido
- Communication with your partner
- Problems related to porn use
- Effects from sexual abuse or trauma
You can enjoy sex!
Nervousness & Anxiety
Nervousness, awkwardness and performance anxiety related to sex can keep us stuck in our head instead of connecting with our partner.
You might not know how to talk about sex with your partner.
Or you might feel really anxious (heart pounding, thoughts racing) about whether your partner will enjoy sex with you or if your body will perform.
Sex therapy can help us gain confidence, feel comfortable, and learn tips to stop the anxiety we will so we can have better sex.
Women's Sexual Concerns
Sex therapy can help women experiencing:
- Low Sexual Desire
- Painful Intercourse
- Body Image Issues or Post-Partum Sexuality Changes
- Anxiety and Nervousness Related to Sex
- Difficulty reaching orgasm
- Effects of Sexual Abuse or Trauma
You Can Enjoy Sex!
Bad Stuff in the Past
It’s rare that any of us get through life without some negative experiences or messages about sex. Sex therapy can help you work through:
- Sexual abuse or trauma
- Embarrassing experiences with partners that get stuck in your mind
- An upbringing that gave you the message that sex was bad or shameful
- Judgmental messages that you received about your body, performance or sexuality
Lost the Sexual Passion
It’s normal to go through sexual ebbs and flows, but did you know that we’re having less sex as a society? Stress, life responsibilities, boredom with sex life and so many other factors can lead to this. Sex therapy can help couples reignite the passion and prioritize their sex life.
LGBTQ+ Sexuality Help
We are LGBTQ+ affirmative and welcome individuals and relationships of all backgrounds.
You are tired of feeling frustrated and disappointed.
Whether you are experiencing a new sexual problem or it’s something that you’ve been experiencing for decades, you are not alone.
We will listen to you with compassion, help you understand what is causing your sexual difficulties, and help you get to a better place.
Depending on what you are experiencing, we also offer home exercises and suggestions which are backed by science to help you improve sexual problems.
The thought of reaching out to a therapist to talk about your sex life may make you feel nervous or embarrassed.
We want to assure you that most people experience issues with sex at some point in their lives and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about!
Attending Sex Therapy Alone or With Your Partner
Individual Sex Therapy
We can help you figure out why you are having the sexual problems you are experiencing and learn new skills to help you.
You might choose individual therapy if you aren’t ready to discuss your concerns with your partner, if they aren’t ready for therapy, or if you are single.
Individual therapy is also effective for survivors of sexual abuse and trauma.
With Your Partner
We will support you and your partner as you talk through your sexual problems, identify different blocks contributing to your challenges, and ultimately get a better place where you both feel joyful and fulfilled sexually.
We are accepting and collaborative–we don’t take sides or look to blame either of you for what you are experiencing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Online Therapy as Effective as In Person Therapy?
Yes! Research is showing that therapy with professional therapists can be just as effective online as in person. In some ways, it might be more effective as it can remove barriers to getting to our office.
How much does therapy cost? How often will we meet?
Appointments range 140-200 per 50 minute session depending on the therapist you choose. You can see each therapist’s fees in their bios above.
You should plan on meeting with your therapist weekly or twice a month–just like you would if you were coming in to our offices.
What do I need in order to meet with you online?
Just a computer with video/audio capabilities and a high speed internet connection.
Be sure to be in a private setting to protect your privacy.
What qualifies you to provide sexual therapy online?
We are a relationship therapy practice in Northern California with special training and experience supporting folks with sexual issues.
Sex therapy is a rare speciality and most therapists are not trained in this area. Because of this, folks sometimes drive to see us from as far as 2 hours away! We decided to start providing online services to meet the need for convenient and quality sex therapy.
We can’t wait to support you!
