Exploring the topic of sexual issues/ physical intimacy can help to enhance the overall quality of your relationship and help you to feel closer and more connected as a couple.
It’s natural for your preferences to evolve as your needs change over time. What may have worked several years ago may no longer be exciting or erotic. What might be fulfilling for one person may change over time or may not be satisfying to the other partner like it used to be.
Whether you're struggling to understand yourself as a sexual being or you're experiencing the burden of desire discrepancies with your partner in particular, or you'd like to work through some specific challenges related to your overall physical intimacy, therapy to address sexual concerns can help you identify what’s not working and take the necessary steps to improve the identified areas.
At Modern MFT, we believe that sexual and physical intimacy concerns are best viewed in the context of each individual’s history and with consideration to the present relationship dynamics. Depending on the nature of the issue(s) you're facing together, we will create a plan that often involves homework and assignments so that we can monitor your improvements and progress.
Together we’ll work to identify the areas of concern, define your most up-to-date definition of satisfying affection, and strengthen your ability as a couple to address these important concerns with careful consideration to your individual needs.
Our approach to helping you address sexual concerns in your relationship is non-pathologizing and supportive. Together we’ll explore what is currently problematic in your sexual relationship and work to improve these areas.
