Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy addressing concerns about one's sexual life by talking with a mental healthcare professional. A sex therapist will help address your concerns about sexual function, sexual feelings and physical intimacy, either in individual therapy or couples therapy sessions. Sex therapy can be effective for individuals of any age, gender or sexual orientation.
Sex therapy is usually provided by an experienced or trained therapist who has training in issues related to sexual and relationship health. Sex therapists do not have sexual contact with their clients, in the office or anywhere else.
Sex therapy is typically short term in duration, with a limited number of sessions. However, treatment plans depend on the concerns and goals being addressed.
