Dallas Sex Therapy

If you’re in a relationship where sex and intimacy continue to be ongoing problems, we can help. Whether it’s a problem with sexual desire, accepting your sexual orientation, coping with past sexual trauma, or pain during sex, our sex therapy services can help you find solutions, even in situations that you’ve felt were impossible to change.

We specialize in helping people with the following issues:

Are you wanting to enhance your sexual relationship without judgment?

We have specialized training to help you and your partner or spouse identify the problems that you’re experiencing with sex in your relationship, and better communicate about your sex in your lives. We understand that sex is more than just about physical stimulation. We also pride ourselves on making our sessions a place that makes talk about sex as easy as possible. We’ll push you when you need it, but support you when you need that as well. Call us today to learn more about how we can help.

We respect that talking about sexual issues and sexual desires can be intimidating.

Sex is a sensitive topic for most people. Whether you’re looking for help with performance issues, sexual desire that you’re uncomfortable with, or taboo sexual topics, we will help you process this in a way that helps you figure out what it is that you want, and the best way to discuss this in your relationship.

Pain free sex can be possible even when it seems impossible.

Sex therapy can help you and your partner when pain is preventing you from having intercourse. Pain during intercourse can be a problem for many women. A sex therapist can help you create a plan to work through anxiety of having pain, along with working through the pain itself. With time, you’ll be able to enjoy sex along with your partner, rather having anxiety and frustration about the pain that has been happening all of this time.

Sex therapy can also help gay men who are dealing with pain during intercourse as well. Talking about sex in such a way can be extremely intimidating. Knowing that your therapist is gay-affirming is extremely important. Working with a sex therapist can help you ease through anxiety of pain, identify probable sources of pain, and work your way to pain-free sex with your partner.

Erectile dysfunction, delayed ejaculation, and premature ejaculation can cause personal and relationship stress and shame. We can help.

For men who contend with these issues, creating a satisfying sexual relationship can seem like an impossible goal. We can help you identify the sources of your sexual problems and move closer and closer to sexual contentment in a way that you hadn’t previously thought possible. By using sexual and non-sexual therapeutic interventions, we can help. Whether it be premature or delayed ejaculation or an inability to maintain an erection at all.

A lack of sexual desire doesn’t mean that you have no hope of having an enjoyable sex life.

A lack of sexual desire can be frustrating and even depressing. Sex is an integral part to most romantic relationships. Sex therapy can help you uncover the causes of your lack of sexual desire, and help you find enjoyment in sex that you had lost hope for. Whether you’ve lost desire that you once had, or you’re trying to find desire that never has existed for you, we can help.

Sexuality Issues for Women

Women often deal with issues regarding sexual satisfaction, pleasure, and desire. There are many sexual issues that men commonly seek out help for. Sex therapy can be helpful for such sexual issues. This article discusses these issues in depth.

Problems With Orgasm

Women are often expected to reach orgasm via intercourse. The truth is that many don’t get to orgasm with intercourse at all. Combine this with social pressures that tell women that understanding their own bodies is shameful. Sex therapy can help women identify these personal sexual stories. The sex therapy process can also help them become more comfortable with their sexual selves. This can help with self-growth, but can also help to facilitate relationship communication as well.

Pain With Sex

Pain is not a natural part of sex. For some women, the pain can be so unbearable that it can make intercourse impossible. This can create serious problems in the relationship of these women. Sex therapy can help with conditions such as vaginismus. Most women who seek out help for painful sex are able to have sex pain-free.

Discussing Sexual Desires

For many relationships, the sexual focus is on male pleasure. This is fine for those relationships where this works. However, there are relationships where this dynamic doesn’t work, or stops working. Sex therapy can help women amplify their voice about their sexual desire. By facilitating communication, women are able to enhance their comfort in their sexual desires, and discuss these more openly with their partners.

Low Sexual Desire

Many women struggle with sexual desire in their relationships. Sex therapy can help women identify the causes of this low level of desire. Through discussing these issues in an open environment, these women are able to develop plans to increase their sexual desire.

With their help, thousands of people have been able to find healing and help for various mental health issues that may be fighting. They can’t wait to help you too.
