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 begin to have difficulties after several or many years of sexual activity. I think the stigma that men can’t or shouldn’t talk about their struggles or feelings is not only outdated, but also harmful and unfair. 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 physically or 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, desire concerns, 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 fear they may lose a relationship or have started to isolate and 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. Or they may want to learn ways to share these preferences with their partner or the people they love.
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.
Sometimes, my male clients can report experiences from their past that still affect them today—past experiences that feel traumatizing or hurtful. I help these clients make sense of these experiences so they can recover and reclaim their sexuality after trauma or abuse (childhood or recent violations).
I also see male clients that are experiencing loss of functioning due to the aging process, medication side effects, medical procedures or a medical diagnosis. I help my clients process their grief and loss while consulting with other medical providers if necessary. My goal is to support them in finding a vibrant and connected sex life regardless of where they are in 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 male clients get unstuck so they can feel a sense of confidence, balance, and pleasure with sex and their sexuality.
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 the things that make you feel ashamed or embarrassed. You will leave with tangible skills to change your life, enhance your relationships and reach your goals. I follow my clients’ pace while also encouraging them to take risks when appropriate. If you’re willing to put in the effort, I’ll help you find a way out of seemingly impossible places.
This holistic, solution-focused approach will also allow you to work through these and other common symptoms:
+ Challenging relationships
+ Addiction issues
+ Trauma or abuse
+ Life and work stressors
While experiencing these issues, clients can feel like there is just no end in sight. This can often be remedied by understanding the connection between your body and intimacy. We will explore the cultural, familial, and religious influences that can otherwise be overlooked as impacting your sexual wellness. We will also work through any issues that may be affecting your daily life and overall well being like anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma and challenging relationships.
