What Is Sex Therapy?
Sex Therapy is exclusively talk therapy that addresses a person's psychological or physical sexual problems. Under no circumstances, does sex therapy involve any sexual or inappropriate contact between the therapist and the client. There is no physical interaction. A Sex Therapist is first and foremost a licensed and certified professional such as a psychiatrist, marriage and family therapist, psychologist, or clinical social worker. We are specially trained in sex therapy methods beyond the minimal amount of training about sexuality that is required for each of those licenses.
How Can Sex Therapy Help Me?
If you, like many people, struggle in finding a safe place to talk about your sexual concerns or interests, you could benefit from seeing a sex therapist. From relational issues to individual concerns, a sex therapist can help you discover your sexual identity and work through issues that may be hindering the enjoyment of your sexual experiences. In addition, the therapists at WSTA are knowledgeable and welcoming of alternative lifestyles, identities, and gender expressions. Please have a look below at the Circles of Sexuality (Dailey, 1981) for a comprehensive understanding of all the aspects related to sexuality to get a broader sense of what our work looks like.
Dr. Dennis Dailey, 1981
