Starting Sex therapy

What is Sex therapy?

Sex therapy addresses challenges and concerns, helping couples move forward in a healthy manner while addressing each person’s fears or worries. Sex is the closest form of intimacy, and when there are issues, the couple can feel distant and experience friction — sex therapy helps to dissolve this friction.

How does Sex therapy work?

Sex therapy providers at Thriveworks in Abingdon, VA take the time to address each person individually, as well as the couple as a whole. Through acknowledgment that each person brings a different sexual history, level of sexual desire, and openness, the couple can work through their unique sex issues successfully, with their therapist's guidance.

Is Sex therapy conducted in person or online?

Sex therapy at Thriveworks in Abingdon, VA is conducted both in person and virtually via online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Sex therapy last?

Sex therapy typically lasts for several months. However, it can be shorter or longer, depending on the couple's needs.

Need more help deciding?

Our society is obsessed with sex. You cannot turn on a tv show, listen to the radio, or go to a movie without hearing something about sex. Some of us teach our children the basics, but mostly we are left to learn for ourselves. Our first experiences with sex, whether good or bad, abusive or loving, can set the stage for our future sexual relationships and experiences. If you are looking for help with sexual issues in Bristol, Thriveworks can help. We have trained professionals that are ready to walk with you on whatever journey you find yourself. Whether you are dealing with a sexual issue in your current relationship, or trying to resolve a painful experience from your past, Thriveworks therapists and counselors in Bristol can help.

There are a wide variety of sexual issues and problems. You may not be trying to work on a specific problem, but rather be trying to improve your current relationship or marriage. If you are struggling with a more serious concern, this list may be useful to you. Some common types of sexual issues include:

  • Sexual orientation
  • Anxiety about sex or sexual performance
  • Body image issues
  • Sex addiction
  • Promiscuity or unfaithfulness
  • Lack of sexual desire
  • Conflicting sexual needs and wants in a relationship
  • Sexual abuse or rape recovery
  • Impotence
  • Sexual impulses and compulsions
  • Voyeurism
  • Fetishes

Sex is the closest form of intimacy, and when there are issues or problems, the couple can feel distant and experience friction. Thriveworks couples counselors and sex therapists in Bristol can address these concerns, and help the couple move forward in a healthy manner, while addressing each person’s fears or worries. We understand that many sexual issues have long histories, and cannot be resolved in only a few sessions. Trust, fear, and self-esteem issues can all play a part in a sexual relationship. We will take the time to address each of these individually.

Perhaps you are not in a relationship at all, and simply trying to deal with your own sexual history and issues. If you have suffered abuse, it can take years to reestablish a healthy emotional state with regards to sex. Thriveworks therapists and counselors in Bristol can help you make this a reality. We will help you develop a plan of action, walk with you as you take the steps necessary for real change, and help you assess your progress.

We know that you may have been considering making that first call for help for a long time. For some, seeking counseling is a hard decision to make, despite it being so desperately needed. When you are finally ready to reach out for help, we are ready to join you. We want to be ready when you are ready to make a change. We pride ourselves on not operating with a waiting list. In most cases, we have appointments available within 24 hours. It can be frightening to consider telling your story to someone new. But it may be the best decision you have ever made for your relationship, and for yourself. You are not alone. Thriveworks counselors and therapists in Bristol are prepared to take this important journey with you.

I highly recommend Trish! She is very helpful, kind, compassionate and excellent at getting down to the roots of the problem. I have made more progress with her than I have with multiple therapists in several different cities. P.S--EMDR therapy sounds totally crazy, but it has significantly helped me. Give it a try!

Dr Mike Pilcher took me under his wing and coached me through one of the biggest decisions of my life...opening a new business. At one point...well more than once...I felt like pulling my hair out and his calm demeanor and no BS approach really helped me get focused and confident. I was able to really pour on the steam and my business is doing well as a result. Dr. P is a great counselor and a man I respect. Call him...I still do to this day.
