Empowering Sexual Wellness

A fulfilling sex life is vital to your health and sense of well-being. However, sex can be a source of great anxiety and worry. I help individuals and couples address, psychological, emotional, physiological and interpersonal factors impacting sexuality.

The Goal

The goal of sex therapy is to help you move past physical, psychological, and emotional challenges to have a satisfying relationship, greater intimacy, become more embodied and have a pleasurable sex life.

What A Session Looks Like

During a session, l will typically begin by asking questions about your sexual history, concerns, and goals. I may also conduct assessments to identify any underlying physical or psychological issues that may be contributing to the problem.

I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that may include a combination of talk therapy, somatic therapy, behavioural exercises, and education about sexual health and anatomy. I also provide guidance on open and responsive communication skills, intimacy-building techniques, Tantra and conscious relating, and ways to enhance sexual pleasure and satisfaction.  I also assign homework tasks for you and/or your partner(s) to complete in the privacy of your home.

I may also collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as Pelvic Floor Specialist, Physiotherapist, Urologist, Gynaecologist to ensure that you receive comprehensive care.

My Approach

I can guide you to connect to your body and it’s wisdom, which helps to move through emotions and open you up to your eroticism and sexuality. In doing this, you get to experience a greater sense of self, confidence and pleasure. 

Throughout the therapy process, l provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for you to explore your sexual concerns and overcome hurdles to a fulfilling sex life. 

Sex therapy can help you and your partner find a way to have authentic communication around sex. It’s the most vulnerable and exposing experience we can have in regards to intimacy, and hence learning to create comfort and acceptance, helps to encourage more ease and the ability to fully let go.
