Intimacy and Relationship Issues

Intimacy and Relationship Issues

Intimacy problems widely occur behind a variety of closed doors. Conflicts may include a loss of harmony between the sheets, a lack of sexual desire between either partners or failure in communication. There are often psychological factors that may contribute to a sexual disorder such as erectile dysfunction, or a lowered desire after a new mother has given birth. Intimacy issues are common, but if one or more become severe and there is no resolution in sight, it may be time to seek therapy for guidance.

What Makes a Satisfactory Relationship?

  • Trust
  • Mindfulness
  • Mutual Respect
  • Communication

Some of the signs that sex problems are affecting a relationship include:

  • Disappointment in oneself or the relationship
  • One or both partners are feeling dissatisfied
  • Couples lack communication and disconnect from one another
  • One or both partners feel neglected or unwanted
  • A feeling of sexual boredom or unhappiness

Steps to take for treating intimacy issues begin with:

  • Psychosexual Therapy: this technique allows couples to express themselves in a safe environment with a trusted and supportive professional.
  • Relationship Counseling: healthy relationships require strong connections and time to build trust. Whatever the issue may be, a counselor can work with individuals together or separately to overcome the problem.

At this time, my couple sessions are fully booked, and I am not able to accept additional couples for couples counseling services. This could always change in the next few weeks, and I would be happy to add you to a waiting list in the meantime. I am only accepting clients for individual psychotherapy at this time. We could talk about it more during a free consultation.
