Sex can get complicated emotionally and physically. If your sexual interactions leave you feeling uncertain, insecure, dissatisfied, anxious or depressed, there is help.
Here, Jennifer Levy, a licensed clinical professional counselor and sex therapist at Northwestern Medicine Center for Sexual Medicine and Menopause, explains what you need to know about sex therapy and if it might be right for you.
What is sex therapy and how can it help?
Sex therapy is a form of talk therapy, also known as psychotherapy or counseling, with a focus on sexual health. It can help you reconnect with yourself and your partner sexually and strengthen relationships. It can also help you understand how your sexual health impacts your life more broadly.
