Is Modern Intimacy Accepting Patients in Miami? Are Sessions In-Person or Virtual?

 

Modern Intimacy is currently working with individual patients and providing couples counseling in Miami, FL, South Florida, and throughout the entire state. Sessions with our Florida licensed therapists are conducted virtually through a secure Telehealth video platform. We are not currently offering in-person sessions with our Miami therapists. 

We understand that Telehealth sessions might seem like a distanced way to conduct therapy, but we’ve seen how behavioral health counseling conducted virtually can be just as effective for our patients as in-person sessions. Telehealth is also a great opportunity for those who don’t live within a reasonable traveling distance to work with the therapist that is best for their needs, despite location.

How Do I Know If I Need Therapy?

 

Therapy for your mental or sexual health can be a helpful tool when it comes to understanding yourself better, processing a traumatic experiences, working through relationship conflicts, managing emotions from mental health conditions, working through stuck points in life, and much more. 

There is often a belief that therapy is for people who are in dire need of help for their mental health. It’s so important for society to work towards normalizing mental health care for any reason. Your mental health and relationships shouldn’t have to get to a breaking point before it feels possible to seek out support. 

Generally, if you find yourself even mildly struggling with issues with your mental health, emotions, lifestyle, relationships, and career, it wouldn’t hurt to explore the idea of starting therapy with a trained mental health professional. There is no topic “too insignificant” to take to therapy and ask for insight and support. 

What Areas of Mental Health Do Your Miami Therapists Specialize In? 

 

We’re lucky to have a staff of highly skilled therapists who come with diverse backgrounds in specialty, education, and experience.  Due to our therapy practice’s emphasis on intimacy and relationships, some of our most common specialty areas revolve around helping individuals and couples improve their relationships with others and with themselves. 

One of the therapy services we offer is sex therapy, which is a type of therapy not every mental health professional is trained in. Our clinical staff is consistently gaining trainings and supervision to provide the most modern, sex positive, non-shaming treatment to patients who come to us looking for help with their sex life or sexual health. 

Within sex, intimacy, relationships, and mental health, our team works with people from all walks of life, around many common treatment areas include: 

  • Mood Disorders (Depression, Anxiety)
