Sexology has come a long way since Masters & Johnson. The typical questions of ‘how many times have you had intercourse this week, this month?’ or ‘what is your rate of orgasm or erectile dysfunction?’ create a quantitative lens to sex that discounts the emotional, spiritual, and mental dimensions of couples.
The route to sexual pleasure and intimacy is like the route to any other of life’s mysteries. It means exploring a multidimensional landscape. It means opening your vulnerable self to nature, to spirituality, and the profound wisdom of your body.
The type of sex therapy that I provide is based on the PLISSIT model and the work of Dr. Gina Ogden. This work is narrative based and allows couples to explore their own story from all four perspectives of body, mind, heart and spirit. It is a process where the couple can explore what they want to keep and grow, and what they want to release. This often includes parts of their story from childhood and early adulthood. This model allows for a gentle and supportive processing of sexual trauma of either spouse.
The process is confidential, empathic, and respectful. The takehomes from our work together will be the discovery of a new sexual story, new healing and new joy. Make an appointment today.
