Individual counseling is aimed helping to educate and empower you in the area of intimacy and sex as you learn to work through your own unique challenges whatever they may be.
Our sexuality affects every area of our lives whether we realize it or not. For many of my clients it is the concerns about how the sexual challenges are affecting their relationship that first bring them in the door.
Individual counseling can help you to make the necessary changes to heal yourself and also your relationship. As you change and grow as an individual you will begin to show up differently (both in and out of the bedroom!) . When you change the way you perceive and experience yourself as a sexual being you also impact the way others perceive and experience you!
It is also understandable that sex might not be the most pressing issue on your mind nor at the forefront of what brings you in. This is totally fine! I also help clients with general therapy challenges such as grief and loss, anxiety, communication, and relationship challenges.
My specialty area is in women's sexuality and reproductive health with an emphasis on desire discrepancy and female sexual pain disorders. I work with both female and male clients of any sexual orientation. I do not work with the transgender population at this time.
It is common for many couples to feel like the challenges they are facing in sex are the fault of one partner or the other. One partner typically feels frustrated and tends to be the one "dragging" the other partner to sex therapy while the one being "dragged" often feels inadequate or even guilty as if it is all their fault.
The truth is that both partners contribute to the dynamic that is causing the challenges in sex. Sex therapy for couples helps you to alleviate frustration, resolve guilt, shame and resentment, and puts you both on the path to creating and maintaining the sex you really want to be having instead of the the sex you think you are "supposed" to be having.
Groups are not only a wonderful adjunct to individual therapy but they are also a cost effective stand alone option for those who may not be able to afford individual sessions.
I have a few different women's therapy groups to choose from ranging form topic specific to more general healing focused groups.
Every group, regardless of topic, involves a holistic healing approach that aims to help you develop greater growth and awareness in your body, mind, spirit, and soul.
For clients who are unable to come into the office for sessions, tele-therapy is a wonderful option! Perhaps you live in a rural area and do not have access to mental health services. Or perhaps you are planing to be out of town for an extended period of time but don't want to miss your appointments. Now you don't have to!
Tele-therapy sessions are done either over the phone or via a secure video conferencing platform. If you have never tried tele-therapy before you will probably be quite surprised at how effective it is and how little difference there really is between a face to face session and one done virtually.
Tele-therapy counseling services at Pathway to Pleasure are currently only available to residents of Texas only. For those who live outside of the State of Texas please read about Intuitive Coaching and Distance Healing services below.
