Sex is an issue that cannot be avoided in adult life. In our personal lives, in the media, in our social conversations, we cannot go long without hearing about sex. We were designed to enjoy sex, although many people have a lot of issues, reservations, and painful histories with the topic. Although it is discussed openly in this time in society, it can be very difficult to discuss privately. Even in close relationships, or in marriages, sex is not a topic that is discussed easily. If you are looking for help with a sexual disorder or sexual issue, Thriveworks Knoxville has trained professionals ready to help. We are discreet, trained professionals, with experience dealing with a wide range of sexual issues. We are a judgment-free zone, ready to openly and honestly help you come to a solution for your sexual issue.
Sexual disorders and issues vary widely. 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
- Sexual impulses and compulsions
This is not a complete list but covers a lot of the common sexual problems. Thriveworks Knoxville counselors and therapists are prepared to deal with whatever you bring to our office. There is no need to feel shame or fear. You may have been dealing with this issue since childhood, and are used to keeping it a secret. Or perhaps there is a new trauma or issues in your life that need to be addressed, and you are unsure where to turn. Thriveworks Knoxville is a safe choice. We are ready to partner with you in making this journey to understanding.
When a couple is having sexual compatibility issues, their relationship can suffer in other areas as well. A lack of closeness, intimacy, and decreased connection can result. It can be very unclear whether the sexual issues came before or after other communication issues. A Thriveworks sex therapist or couples counselor can help navigate these issues, and identify the source of sexual problems. For many people, trauma from their childhood or past relationships cause difficulties in future relationships. When a person is able to openly deal with the pain from the past, they can begin to overcome their sexual issues in a new way. Thriveworks Knoxville sex therapists are able to help you on this journey, and monitor your progress.
