Can I work with a Modern Intimacy Sex Therapist 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 Telehealth. We provide sex and relationship therapy for individuals, couples therapy, and marriage counseling for those looking to improve intimacy and work through obstacles getting in the way of a healthy and happy sex life.

Sex therapy can provide insight and support around various sexual issues. However, there aren’t always situations around sex that need to be “fixed.” It can be helpful to work with a clinical psychologist or mental health professional who specializes in sex therapy for various different reasons. Sex Therapy can help you better understand human sexuality, explore different desires and fantasies, and provide suggestions on what you and/or your partner can do to have the most pleasurable, authentic, and great sex life.
