Sex Therapy Men Los Angeles CA
Our sexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are, when we are not confident or self-expressed in this part of our life, it can affect every aspect of it and our partners as well. Some of my clients have never felt confident about their sexuality while others have difficulties after several or many years of sexual activity. I think the stigma that Men can’t or shouldn’t talk about their feelings is not only outdated but also harmful to not only themselves but their kin as well. Therefore, it’s always been a goal of mine to validate and congratulate any men that find themselves in my office (or on my website for that matter) for taking the first step in seeking help for whatever is ailing them emotionally.
Safe, Confidential, and Effective Sex Therapy for Men
My male clients come to me for a variety of issues. Many have struggled for years with performance anxiety and possibly regular loss of their erections or difficulty with orgasm (either finishing too early, too late or not finishing at all). By the time they enter my office, many of my clients feel discouraged and stuck. Even worse, they may have started to isolate or avoid romantic or sexual relationships altogether. They worry that they may never have a “normal” sex life.
Other clients might come in because they are uncomfortable or having tension about their sexual preferences, interests or needs. They feel conflicted, lost and confused. They may want to figure out ways to better integrate parts of themselves so they feel more whole and live a more congruent and fulfilled life. Regardless, of the issues I find the two feelings that are most often present are anxiety and shame. I feel passionate about helping my clients get unstuck so they can feel a sense of confidence, balance, and pleasure with sex and their sexuality.
At the same time, many of my clients choose to start therapy because they feel out of control with one or more sexual behaviors. They feel like every attempt to stop or manage their behaviors have been unsuccessful. They feel out of control and exhausted. Most of all, they feel stressed and ambivalent because aspects of their lives that they really care about like their career, family, and relationships are in jeopardy.
I also see clients that have inexperience in sex and relationships, have had sexual side effects and loss of functioning due to medical procedures or a medical diagnosis. I see men who are struggling with relationship ambivalence, overall life stress, depression or grief/loss.
My male clients have told me they find me to be easy to talk to, non-judgmental, motivating, compassionate, normalizing, and most of all honest, direct, and supportive. My clients say I am effective in helping them find real solutions to their sexual concerns. I provide my clients with a holistic-solution-focused approach to treatment that ensures all elements of sexual health are processed and addressed including the physical, emotional, cultural, psychological, and spiritual. Our sessions will provide you with the opportunity to speak openly about things you might be ashamed or embarrassed of, isolation, fears, and anxieties, in an effort gain insight and reach your goals. You will leave with tangible skills to change your life and enhance your relationships. I follow my clients pace while also encouraging them to take risks when appropriate.
