What is sex therapy?

Sex Therapy is a type of counseling that focuses on sexual functioning, intimacy, and the psychological, behavioral and emotional issues related to sex.

Who is qualified to provide sex therapy?

Sex Therapy is conducted by a licensed mental health professional that has received considerable training in the field of sex and sexuality.

What does a sex therapy session look like?

A sex therapy session will look like a typical talk-therapy session in which a client will discuss sexually based issues with their therapist.  Because sex therapy is also life therapy, other aspects of the client's life will be addressed as well.

How does online sex therapy work?

All services are delivered through telehealth/telemedicine, meaning we do not meet in the same room. There are a few ways that this can occur but most commonly it is using video conferencing technology where we see each other face-to-face using a HIPAA secure and encrypted video conferencing program, or sometimes we will speak over the phone.

Why would I want to do online therapy?

Teletherapy/telemedicine, although not “traditional” in the sense of face-to-face therapy, is a very beneficial modality for a variety of clients.  Distance therapy may be a good choice for a variety of clients, including but not limited to:

  • Clients that are not geographically close to a qualified therapist
  • Clients who do not have access to a specialist (such as a sex therapist)
  • Clients who are unable to attend therapy sessions (due to illness, health issues, mobility issues, transportation issues)
  • Clients who may require an extra layer of confidentiality, privacy, or emotional safety
  • Clients with busy schedules that cannot make regular appointment times (clients who travel, commute, etc.)

Who is Distance Therapy NOT Appropriate For?

Teletherapy would not be appropriate for anyone who has severe mental health concerns; is actively or recently suicidal, homicidal, or violent; high-conflict couples; clients with poor or challenging boundary issues; and clients who could be better served using a different modality.

I offer online sex therapy, telehealth/telemedicine and in-person counseling.

Due to regulations, I currently only work with individuals living in Indiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania (states in which I hold professional licenses).
