"Sexual Health is the integration of the somatic, emotional, intellectual, and social aspects of sexual well-being, in ways that are positively enriching and that enhance personality, communication, and love." –World Health Organization
Human sexuality is a complex and multi-faceted aspect of every person’s life, incorporating biology, culture, psychology, and spirituality. For many people, sexuality is healthy, natural, and well-integrated into their lives. For others, aspects of sexuality can be a source of tension or pain in their lives and the lives of their partners.
Given that our sexuality is so fundamental and basic to our existence, the impact of a sexual dysfunction, abuse, addiction, disturbing urges, fantasies or behaviors, or relational sexual concerns have the potential to negatively influence an individual’s or couples’ wellbeing and mental health. This makes the work of therapy and the outcome for our clients incredibly important and rewarding.
