What Happens in Sex Therapy?

Sex therapy is psychotherapy specialized in helping individuals and couples with sex and relationship problems.  The more accurate term is “sex psychotherapist,” as all sex therapists are licensed.  A sex therapist is able to figure out sex and relationship issues, but also any type of problem from depression to AD/HD.  There is never any touching by the therapist.

Sex therapy is talk therapy.  Dr. Buehler will ask you about the problem, when it started, and what you’ve tried to do to make it better.  She will take a history of your past relationships.  Then a custom treatment plan will be created.  This may include psychotherapy, reading books and articles, and/or activities for you to try, alone or with a partner.  Most people who enter sex therapy are satisfied, or very satisfied, with their decision to get help.
