What is Christian Sex Therapy?
Glad you asked! Let’s start by saying that sex is one of the most misunderstood areas of relationship counseling. Christian Sex Therapy consists of three parts: Christianity, Sexuality, and Counseling. I believe that God made us be sensual and sexual beings. After all, the largest organ we have is our skin. He made us want to be in a relationship and made us in His image. Sexuality is more than intercourse. Our sexuality is perceived in the way we respect our bodies, respect others, in how we bond with friends and family, and in how we connect with our significant other. Our sexuality is linked to our mental and spiritual health. Therefore, when emotional, physical, or mental challenges appear, they can be overwhelming; and affect our ability to be intimately connected. As a sex therapist who is also Christian, I strive to help individuals feel safe and comfortable dealing with difficulties of an intimate sexual nature.
The following are some of the various sexual difficulties that I help clients with:
- Low sexual desire, or conflicts over different desire levels
- Inability to orgasm
- Unconsummated marriage
- Female sexual pain
- Sexual addiction or compulsivity
- Past sexual abuse
- Affair recovery
