Sexuality is one of the most complex aspects of the human experience. A host of psychological and physical factors are almost always intertwined and can impact an individual’s sexuality. Solving a physical problem may only be half of the battle. If a sexual problem persists it often leads to anger, frustration, low self-esteem, emotional distance and blame, which in turn can damage a relationship. The goal of sex therapy is to help individuals learn more about their body and feel at ease with their sexuality as well as promoting intimacy across the life span.
