Having Sexual Intimacy or Relationship Problems?
Do you long for more passion?
Do you have conflicts about desire differences?
Has betrayal affected your relationship?
Do you wish to talk more openly about your dreams and fantasies?
These are some of the questions many women and men have when they enter therapy. Claudia Thompson and her associates can help.
Each person entering our office is unique with his or her own life story. Talking about your worries and concerns in therapy with your partner or individually, exploring how your upbringing and family history have affected you as an adult, and working to make changes in your behaviors are some of the ways we will work together to move you toward greater satisfaction in your relationship and life.
Because of our cultures and societal expectations, few of us were taught to communicate our sexual thoughts or desires. Communication skills are taught and encouraged in therapy. Many of our clients express relief and connection when they are able to communicate their private thoughts with their partner and not be judged.
Often men and women get stuck in one part of their sexual experience, such as not being able to “perform” up to expectations…or feeling highly anxious about sexual interactions. Seeking to understand and balance the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual parts of individual and couple sexuality can be a healing and connecting process. What is sex therapy?
