What is sex therapy?
Are images of Barbara Streisand from Meet the Fockers flashing through your mind? As entertaining as that may be, sex therapy is actually just where we talk about intimacy and relationship issues. The office is similar to a living room, bright, welcoming and comfortable. At Respark Therapy, sex therapy is a specialization of psychotherapy.
Most therapists do not receive any training in sexuality or sex therapy. Many sex therapists are not certified and do not have extensive training. At Respark, all of our therapists are either an AASECT (The American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists) Certified Sex Therapist, or they are in training to become a Sexual Health Alliance Certified Sex Therapist. This means our therapists are obtaining 200+ hours of additional training/continuing education in sex and relationship counseling, supervision and experience treating issues.
Sex Therapists at Respark Therapy deal with many concerns:
- Individual clients or couples who are dealing with a relationship and/or sexual health issues.
- Some of our clients are single and/or dating
- Some of our clients are in long term relationships. Many have been married for 10, 20 even 50 years!
- We also see many clients that are in casual relationships or have only been dating for a few months to a year.
