| What is Sex Therapy?
therapy is regular/general psychotherapy but with a therapist who is specially
trained in sexuality and sexual health. This includes sexual
dysfunctions, sexual trauma, infidelity, sex / porn addiction,
sexual orientation, non-monogamy, gender diversity, and so on.
Rossana provides a sex positive, non-judgmental environment where
individuals feel comfortable talking about any sex related
issues that are troubling them (your secrets are safe with her). In her experience, it is often shame and
lack of sexual education that leads to one's inability to accept
themselves. Rossana and her clients work together to increase
self-acceptance, understanding, and gain practical sex education in
order to reach the clients therapeutic goals.
Individual or Couples Sex Therapy
Whether you are in a relationship or not, sex therapy can help you manage sexual dilemmas such as:
Anxiety About Performance
Lack of Sexual Enjoyment
Love / lust conflicts
Sex / Porn Addictions
Sexual Self Confidence
Sexual Traumas / PTSD (see below)
Vaginismus / Vulvodynia
Sexual Assault Survivors / PTSD
Whether the assault occurred yesterday or 30 years ago, deciding to
see a therapist to support you in your journey is a key step in
overcoming the traumatic experience. Through the use of cognitive
behavioral therapy, individuals learn effective coping skills,
ways to manage your feelings, and strategies for overcoming triggers.
Individuals will have the opportunity to explore thoughts that they may
not have said out loud to anyone before and process how this experience has had lasting negative effects on their life.
