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 Fredericksburg, 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 Fredericksburg, 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?

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

Ann is a great listener, but she is also helpful with strategies for coping and communicating. She does more than "validate feelings."

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!

I just want to say that since beginning counseling at Thriveworks that it has been the best choice I could have made for myself. I know everyone goes into counseling with their own ideas of what to expect from their counselors. But Thriveworks Fredericksburg has the most comfortable atmosphere, my counselor is Amazing, and the staff is professional every time I call to schedule my recurring appts! If you need help Thriveworks Fredericksburg is the place to call! All I can say is kudos to Aimee K! Thank you!!

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

I’m very relieved to have finally started therapy sessions with Robert. It’s taken me a while to make this move towards dealing with some outstanding hurts. I’m certain I’ve come to the right place.
