So what can you really expect from sex therapy? I promise you, it’s not nearly as weird as you may be thinking! Actually it is a really profound opportunity to get answers to questions you can’t just ask your friend at the local coffee shop. Moreover, one of the most fundamental aspects of how I look at sex therapy is really the space and setting to feel safe to talk about intimate details of your sexual relationships or concerns, questions or just curiosity into something new.
Deciding if I’m the right sex therapist for you
One of the most important things I try to convey is that I’m not a one-size-fits-all type of therapist, and you’re not a one-size-fits-all type of client. It’s important for it to feel like it is a good match between us. It takes time to build trust and comfort that is why I offer a complimentary consultation for 30 minutes over the phone, in person or video conferencing. It ought feel like together it is possible right from the get-go to feel ok. I’m compassionate, warm, and professional, but I also have a sense of humor. I’m there with you when things get emotional, and take pride in creating an environment conducive to deep healing. I’m very enthusiastic about my work, and my passion tends to come across in session.
Starting The process and deciding the best format
I offer a variety of formats for sex therapy and coaching, based on your interests, resources, and goals. I offer:
In Office Sessions
Thera-Coaching (a mix of homework and therapy)
Complimentary consultation or our first appointment
If you decide to start phone, in office or video chat coaching, I’ll send you a request to meet or you can go to http://www.healingsoulsllc.com and visit schedule a session for an up to the minute schedule. I’d love to get to know you over a complimentary consultation. You’ll have answers to your questions; learn about our schedules, interests, and background, so I can get a sense of what your life looks like. The time also gives me a chance to asksyou to share the challenges you’re currently having and how they are affecting your life. I’ll review your answers, and prepare a customized session for you. It is important at this time of consultation you know I intentionally do not go deep in the complimentary consult for your safety in building a relationship.
During the first session itself, I may ask you some follow-up questions from our consult. Then I’ll share my feedback from your answers to the time we had and talk about strategies for making improvements. We’ll talk about your objectives for moving advancing, and what the next steps will be from there.
After the session, I’ll send you an email with potentially a number of exercises tailored just for you or review
