Individual Sex Therapy

Understanding how sexual urges and behaviors develop is critical to enjoying a rewarding and shame-free sex life. Through my sex therapy services, you can build your confidence and experience greater pleasure and intimacy in your sex life.

What is sex therapy?

Sex therapy is a particular subset of psychotherapy that offers professional assistance and support to people with concerns about their sexual health. Such problems can be primarily physical, such as in the case of people who find intercourse to be painful, or they can be primarily emotional, such as in the case of people who find their sex lives hampered by strong inhibitions or feelings of anxiety. In most cases, though, sex therapy is a holistic process involving both physical and emotional facets in order to revitalize your sexual expression.

What kinds of issues can sex therapy address?

As a licensed sexologist, I am trained to help clients work through their personal and relationship concerns. The primary goals of sex counseling services are:
  • to help you overcome related physical or communication difficulties you might be experiencing
  • give you the informational and emotional tools to practice healthy sexual behaviors
  • set you on the road to more satisfying, fulfilling intimate relationships

Sex counseling can help you better understand and resolve a variety of sexual concerns, including but not limited to the following:
  • Anxieties and shame related to sex
  • Sex addiction
  • Difficulties reaching orgasm
  • Sexual activity while living with a physical disability
  • Painful sex
  • Sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Mental health symptoms related to sexual activity
  • Sexual dysfunction

What should you expect during sex therapy sessions?

Sex therapy doesn't involve physical contact with the therapist, nor does it include physical contact with a partner while the therapist is present.

Many prospective clients are interested in sex therapy but are hesitant due to not having a clear sense of what they hope to get out of the process. For that reason, I offer several opening consultation services to see what may be making you feel stuck in the bedroom or what's holding you back from your sexual flow. During a consultation, we'll review your background, beliefs, and the current state of your sex life, all in service of helping you zero in on the issues and concerns you want to explore.

As a licensed sexologist and AASECT certified sex counselor, the help I provide is holistic, informational, and medical. For example, if you find yourself experiencing pain during intercourse, we can help you determine physical issues that might be causing such pain and suggest approaches to reduce or avert them. Sex should be enjoyable for all parties, and you deserve to feel pleasure in bed instead of pain.

In other cases, I can help you develop actionable plans to improve sexual satisfaction. As we identify the most important issues to you, we'll provide actionable suggestions that you can try out at home with your partner or partners.

Telehealth services are provided for sex counseling and coaching programs. I am happy to work with you to find the best approach for your situation and help you get your sexual mojo back!

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.

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. 

- Client

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!
