Couples Therapy

Most of us grow up thinking that sex will be easy. The lack of sex and relationship education, or misinformation from multiple systems like the media, religion, or even family…..we get the impression that we are just supposed to know what to do.

“You’ll figure it out,” is what many of us hear. And believe.

This paradigm sets us up for struggle. It also creates myths that, without accurate information about our bodies and how our sexuality works, damage us and create shame, pain, and confusion.

There is another way.

Couples therapy and coaching can provide a pathway to clear communication, navigating differences, and exploring aspects in your relationship that you want to experience growth and expansion. Sex isn’t just what you do. It’s a part of who you are. And, it’s a place you go and a journey you take together.

Both therapy and coaching provide you with ways to authentically and clearly relate your feelings and desires, so that you can get your intimacy needs met in a healthy way.

Couples see me for:

  • Different levels of sexual desire
  • Feeling more emotionally and sexually connected
  • Lack of communication around sex and intimacy
  • Painful intercourse
  • Coping with mental or physical health concerns of your partner
  • Coping with cancer recovery or chronic illnesses as they relate to intimacy
  • Sexless marriages
  • Sex education
  • Resentments
  • Differences in values and beliefs around sexuality
  • Partner’s sexual dysfunction
  • Opening up or restructuring the relationship
  • Body image concerns
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Addiction
  • Trauma
  • Stress and time management
  • Loss of passion in the relationship
  • Porn
  • Increasing sexual satisfaction
  • Having sex after an affair

Being able to share our sexual selves with someone we love is a beautiful thing. Dr Christina focuses on providing research-based education and creates a space where every partner can be heard and seen. Often specific homework is provided to help enhance pleasure and intimacy.

You are not alone, and there are solutions to every problem.
