"Let's talk about sex! Sylvia's combination of compassion, warmth and humor has allowed us to explore our sexual relationship in an incredibly safe space. She is extremely well versed in this field and always has some new tool or idea to help us expand our abilities to be intimate, connected and sexual. Sylvia is also the first sex/relationship therapist we have seen that has consistently moved us away from blame and shame into a space of finding ways to share what makes us excited. Sylvia is helping us get our groove back."  Dax & Miles

Sex Therapy

What does it mean to be AASECT certified?

AASECT is the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists. It is the industry gold standard in certification. To be certified requires many years of formalized study and experience. 

Sex is an important part of an individual’s life as well as a vital aspect of a committed love relationship. Sex makes us feel good about our partners and ourselves. Many of us, however, may develop difficulties in this area and seek help. A sex therapist is specially trained to assess and treat sexual problems. Sexual problems and concerns may include:

Lack of Sexual Desire

 

Differences in Sexual Desire

 

Erectile Dysfunction

 

Premature Ejaculation

 

Delayed or Inhibited Ejaculation

 

Inability to Experience Orgasm

 

Inhibited Arousal

 

Pain During Intercourse

 

Vaginal Spasms Preventing Intercourse

 

Problems Resulting from Sexual Trauma and Abuse

 

Difficulties Achieving Sexual Compatibility

 

Sexual Challenges Posed by Aging, Illness, or Medical Treatment

 

 

Since sexual problems are impacted by physiological, psychological and relational factors, my approach to working with sexual difficulties is multi-dimensional. In a safe and non-judgmental environment my work with you may include:

Education

Suggested Readings and Videos

Individual and/or Relationship Therapy

Referral for Medical Assessment and Treatment

 

As a part of our therapy, I may suggest homework, to be practiced individually, or as a couple, in the privacy of your home. 

Sexual activity is NEVER a part of your actual therapy session.  In no instances will a Certified Sex Therapist engage in any sexual activity with a client, whether in the office or any location.
