Sex Therapy: Sexual Issues and Sex Disorders – Counselors in Fredericksburg, VA

When you are struggling with a serious sexual issue, every day can be a struggle. The most mundane activities can be overwhelmed by a wandering mind and frustrating or confusing thoughts. If you are dealing with sexual abuse from your childhood or from your past, every casual mention of sex can be very painful. Popular culture is full of references to sex. They are common and entertaining to some, but awkward to others. Thriveworks Fredericksburg counselors and therapists can be very helpful in making the transition to being able to deal with this pain in a healthier way.

There are a wide variety of sexual issues and problems. 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 Fredericksburg, VA can address these concerns, and help the couple move forward in a healthy manner, while addressing each person’s fears or worries. Each person brings a different sexual history, level of sexual desire, and openness. 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 person individually, as well as the couple.

Perhaps you are not in a relationship at all, and simply trying to deal with your own sexual history and issues. You can feel very alone, with just your problems and the secrets of your past. If you have suffered abuse, it can take years to reestablish a healthy emotional state with regards to sex. Thriveworks Fredericksburg therapists and counselors 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 as you make healthy changes.

How long have you cared for others, while ignoring your own pain? How long can you keep going on the rat race of life in such a painful emotional state? It is time to take care of yourself. 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 Fredericksburg, VA are prepared to take this needed and important journey with you. Let’s get started. 540-322-5424

Thriveworks Counseling Fredericksburg

Best therapist I’ve ever had

★★★★★
I had the best luck with finding Krista! She helped me through so much. The doctors were quick to put me on several medications which made me feel worse with my anxiety and depression. So she helped me find different natural ways of coping. She had the best advice, it was honestly kind of a sad day when I realized I didn’t need her anymore. But I know who I’m going back to if I ever need someone to talk to again! Krista if you see this please know you helped save my life! Thank you!

Happy with everything except the 48 hr cancellation policy.

★★★★☆
Happy with everything except the 48 hr cancellation policy. 24hrs is pretty standard and more feasible when you have children.

A Divine Amazing Encounter with Colette Brooks”

★★★★★
When I first spoke to Colette Brooks, her coaching skills was nothing short of divine, amazing and full of discernment. She was able to ask all the right questions and listen attentively to my ideas and turn my dream ideas into a business idea that I am more than overjoyed to be currently pursing. I am elated that I met her and it also did not hurt that she lead me to a degree where I am saving thousands of dollars per year. I am more than impressed with her coaching, counseling and 20 plus years of Human Resources and business knowledge. She is the real deal!! I know that my life, those ideas I had that linger within me that I was afraid to step out on and my family/legacy that I want to leave behind will forever be grateful to her kind, graceful wisdom and also her patience.

★☆☆☆☆
Person answering phone who claims to be office manager, not helpful at all. Kept cutting me off as I was trying to explain my situation. Upon learning no new patients being accepted by the one counselor that specialized with our situation. I then asked if there was someone a director or another counselor I could maybe speak to for advice as to another facility, option plan or next step. But according to her she was the one with the know with all and that I would be told the same thing by them, that there was no availability at that location, (not what I was asking). My advice would be to be considerate of people calling we are most certainly dealing with pretty difficult situations and if this is the first person at the forefront taking the calls I wonder how many others have been left disappointed and needing help?

Just called. You state no waiting list on website. The first thing I was asked was about insurance coverage and second is can we put you on a wait list? How long is the list? Oh probably January. Like the middle end or start of January- no idea! No thanks
