Frequently asked questions
Is it possible to have great sex?
You bet it is. Great, non-gendered, transcendent sex.
How long is a counselling session?
A session lasts 50 minutes. For initial sessions, many people choose to stay an additional half-hour or hour, should you desire it at that time.
Does it always take a bunch of appointments to help with sexual issues?
No. Not everyone needs long term therapy. Many people simply need a safe place, and one or a few sessions, to talk about sex, to unload, ask questions, and receive accurate and non-judgmental information.
Sometimes all it takes is a single session, although a few sessions is more typical.
Do you serve only heterosexuals?
Sexual problems can occur in all types of relationships; heterosexual, gay, lesbian, or bisexual. We respectfully work with people to find solutions that meet the unique needs of their relationship.
Is there any touching involved?
No, there is no touching.
I’ve never talked to anyone about my problem before. How do I start?
Fear and embarrassment often keep people from discussing sexual issues. We work with individuals and couples in a way that will allow you to comfortably discuss these subjects so we can work on finding solutions. The easiest is through email or simply calling one of the numbers listed below.
You are not alone
“My husband is a sex addict . . .
and a compulsive masturbator who suffers enormously with this addiction. I, as his wife, know better than anyone else just exactly how deep rooted and how vast this problem is for him, and how embarrassed he feels about it.”
“My husband and I are experiencing marital problems . . .
that we cannot seem to fix. We have a 15-month-old son who, we feel, has nothing to do with these issues. Primarily we have problems with intimacy, and have probably since the beginning of our 7-year relationship, and now we find we are beginning to lose our friendship, as well. We desperately want to save our marriage.”
“My husband does not seem to have any sexual desire . . .
He does not suffer from ED. We have only a little intimacy in our relationship and intercourse barely once a year. Recently I expressed to him that I have realized that I am not able to live the rest of my life without this kind of intimacy with my spouse. And, I also admitted that I am feeling tempted to go outside our relationship (as I did in the past). I also told him that I am willing to do whatever it will take to ‘fix’ it.”
“I’m seeking help for overcoming what I believe is performance anxiety . . .
I can get an erection on my own and while sleeping, but things don’t work as easily when I’m with my wife. I have had this condition for pretty much as long as I’ve been sexual active. I have gone to the doctor and have a prescription which helps a bit but not enough.”
“I seriously think there is something wrong with me . . .
and I think it’s causing issues between my boyfriend and me. I have been having sex for the last 5 years and have tried everything, and I have still not been able to orgasm. I just don’t know where to go to get some answers. I tried asking my doctors, but they just look at me funny like why are you asking me this, and then tell me that my boyfriend just isn’t putting enough effort into getting me off, but I know that’s not the case. I’ve spent hours trying to get myself off, and I can’t even do that even with toys or anything. I’m worried that I won’t be able to have a sexually pleasing relationship with anyone ever, and that will ultimately doom me to remain single forever.”
