In relationship therapy, we will work together with you and your partner to address relationship concerns and explore adaptive solutions that are aligned with your specific goals.

sex therapy

Sex therapy is psychotherapy with a focus on the treatment of sexual concerns. Most sex therapy interventions are cognitive-behavioral, meaning they look at the influence of how thoughts and behaviors impact mood. As a result, sex therapy will often include homework assignments for clients to complete at home, in between sessions. (Sex therapy does not involve nudity or being sexual in session).
