Sex Therapy

What is Sex Therapy?
Sex therapy is therapy that helps individuals and couples enhance sexual fulfillment and/or resolve sexual conflicts and struggles. It is similar to other types of therapy in that it is based on dialogue, but it is also distinct. In addition to dialogue, couples can expect homework assignments to educate or enrich relational intimacy, (such as reading or doing behavioral exercises), that will be done in the privacy of their home together. While some of these assignments may seem uncomfortable, clients can rest assured that Kerry will be patient and sensitive to their comfort levels and how far they are able to stretch throughout the process. Kerry has a background of extensive reading and study surrounding the wide range of physical factors influencing various sexual dysfunctions, but referrals and consultation with medical professionals will be made where necessary. Kerry will serve as a guide and support throughout the process of sex therapy, striving to provide an environment that is safe and relaxed, encouraging open dialogue and creative problem-solving. Ethical boundaries will be maintained, and Kerry will conduct sex therapy in a manner that is both respectful to clients and consistent with his Christian beliefs. Clients can expect an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance, with a professional who is both competent and compassionate.

Why Sex Therapy?
While a majority of couples will report some type of sexual struggle over their lifetime, most will suffer in silence and alone. Similarly, single individuals may feel isolated as they struggle alone with sexual integrity issues. Sexuality and sexual health impacts every aspect of relating. Improving sexual wholeness as an individual and the experience of sexual pleasure between spouses is an important step towards increasing overall intimacy and health in marriages and relationships. Sex therapy can be a catalyst toward much needed healing, fostering steps toward positive change.
