When it comes to having a happy and healthy relationship, it's important to address certain issues that are causing you and your partner problems, especially when it comes to being intimate.
Being comfortable with your partner and having a healthy sex life is an important aspect of a loving relationship. If you're struggling with this aspect of your relationship, it may be time to see a sexologist.
When to see a sexologist and what to expect
The idea of seeing a clinical sexologist may feel a bit intimidating to couples. While some people may feel embarrassed or ashamed of their issues, others struggle to talk about sex at all. The good news is that sexologists are expertly trained to approach all couples with compassion, understanding, and a down-to-earth approach.
If your quality of life or emotional health has been affected by intimacy issues, it may be time to see a sexologist. Sex therapy isn't just reserved for couples struggling with a lack of intimacy. They're also for people who experience discomfort during sex, are embarrassed by their bodies, or have deeper personal issues getting in the way of pleasure. Sexologists specialize in various issues and can be a great tool to get your relationship and sexual mojo back on track.
When you first see a sexologist, they'll ask you questions to better understand your relationship, overall situation, and goals. They aren't there to judge, and they genuinely want to help improve your relationship with your partner or your own sexuality.
Depending on what you're comfortable with, you can choose to see a sexologist on your own or with your partner. Sometimes you can do a mixture of both! Depending on the issue being addressed, you may only require a sexologist for a short period of time. For more complex issues, you may feel comfortable having more sessions.
Sexologists appreciate that talking openly about sex can be uncomfortable for some people. They have the training needed to make you feel comfortable while learning more about you. It is just that—talking. Sex therapy does not include touching. It's all about learning to talk openly and freely about your sexual expression and sexual needs.
After attending your session, you may be assigned "homework." These are recommended activities given by a sex therapist to help improve a couple's relationship and reignite that spark. This might include improved communication strategies, experimentation, education, and more. Sex therapy isn't all about sex; it delves into deeper, personal issues to help couples feel comfortable and desirable with each other again.

I love being a clinical sexologist but you might be wondering what exactly that is. Am I right?
For me, clinical sexology means that I got radical and studied sex from every angle so that I could create a practice that works for you.
Hi there! I'm Dr. Lori, your sexology guide.
She's got mad skills!
A mystic, philosopher, Lover of spirituality and the woo-sphere!
I have recommended you to multiple friends. So many women suffer unnecessarily because they have no one to talk to - you need a billboard!
I have a better sense of what's going on during my periods (and genuinely wish I knew all this information much earlier in my life!) I'm finding ways to work on stress and anxiety, and also getting support dealing with a chronic pain condition. Working with Lori has felt like a "safe space" to explore my pain and try to find alternative ways to manage it.
Thank you! I can't explain how great it feels to have someone work with me and genuinely seem to care and feel you have my best interest at heart. It's been life changing to have someone as part of my health care team who is so wonderful. When I was recommended to see you, I was told you were a 'magical hormone understanding unicorn," and I feel like that description fits perfectly!
Here's where you can find me online!
