What to Work With a Sex Therapist in NYC?

If your sex life, marriage, intimate partner or even your own sexuality feels misaligned with what you truly desire, we can help. Sex counseling is like regular therapy but with an intentional focus on the areas of your sex life and sexual activity that feel like they need care to thrive. 

Therapy does not involve physical touch. It is a conversation with an individual therapist intended to explore the heart of your challenges and use skill building and tools to help you create the sex life you most desire.

Sex therapy can be done as individual therapy or as a couples therapy. Couples sex therapy can be incredibly helpful for exploring complex topics like sexual satisfaction, mismatched libidos or sex drive, past sexual trauma, opening up a relationship, improving communication, reducing stress and more.

Tell Me About Your Sex Therapists in NYC

Wherever you reside in the state of New York, you can work remotely with our private practice New York City sex therapists via our telehealth services. We offer sex therapy via individual therapy and couples therapy for anyone looking to improve their sex life, heal past sexual or emotional trauma, and work through obstacles that are interfering with a healthy and happy sex life.

This isn’t to say that your sex life needs to be “fixed”. It’s more about giving you (and your partner) insight, grace, deeper connection and healing around the sexual issues that feel stuck or misaligned with who you are.

Working with a clinical psychologist or mental health professional who specializes in sex therapy can be liberating for many reasons. Including exploring different desires, fantasies, and suggestions for what you and/or your partner can do to have the most pleasurable, authentic, and great sex life.
