Working one-on-one with a professional will enable you to start making positive changes towards living your best self. With compassion, education, professionalism, playfulness, and confidentiality, your therapist will help you to co-create a therapeutic relationship that can foster growth and courage for change.
We heal and grow in relation to others. Love is the source of our greatest happiness and our deepest hurt. If your relationship is struggling or is starting to feel like it needs a tune-in, your therapist will help you to learn what the research tells us about successful partnerships. With the relationship as the client, your therapist will guide you down a path of learning, practicing, erroring, and recovering. You’ll learn improved communication skills and conflict management while also strengthening your emotional and physical intimacy.
Inseparable from every part of relationship counseling, sex therapy works to improve passion and romance in a partnership, improve quality of physical affection and intimacy, learn affirming language for sexual health, and provide psychoeducation regarding sexual functioning. Clients who seek sex therapy may have concerns including (but not limited to) lack of passion, pregnancy/postpartum, aging, lack of sexual pleasure, low sexual desire, pain disorders, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, sexual trauma, or negative beliefs regarding sex.
An 8-week course designed to prepare you for the lifetime commitment of marriage. Based on research and proven outcomes, the program will challenge your false beliefs about relationships, provide research-based education to teach you how to create a successful and loving partnership, identify and practice tools and techniques to improve and maintain emotional intimacy, develop practical ways to approach future conflicts and struggles, and provide a strong foundation for physical passion and satisfaction.
