Sex Therapy: Sexual Issues and Disorders – Counselors and Therapists in Littleton
Everywhere we look, sex is being discussed, depicted, or debated. In the media, in locker rooms, in music; it cannot be escaped. But when there are problems in your sex life, with your sexual identity, or your sexual past, somehow, these things are kept much more private and confidential. We cannot bring up these issues in most close friendships, let alone in social circles. While this may be polite, it can be very isolating. Our sexual issues become overwhelming when we cannot even discuss them out loud. Left to suffer in silence, we stew and obsess. When you connect with Thriveworks Littleton counselors and sex therapists, you are beginning the process of understanding and healing.
We are discreet, trained professionals, with experience dealing with a wide range of sexual issues. Thriveworks Littleton counselors avoid judgment, and are ready to openly and honestly help you come to a solution for whatever you are facing. 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
While this is not a complete list, it is the beginning of understanding where your issues fall. Thriveworks Littleton sex therapists can help you learn to discuss your problems openly. There is no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed in our offices. We are professionals, ready to help you process and gain clarity on your sexual issue.
When a couple is having difficulties with sexual intimacy, their relationship suffers in other areas. A lack of closeness, communicate, and decreased connection can result. It is often difficult to determine whether a couple’s sexual issues developed before or after other relationship problems. A Thriveworks Littleton 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 this person is able to honestly process the hurt from the past, they can begin to overcome their sexual issues in a new relationship. Thriveworks Littleton sex therapists and counselors are waiting to help you make this change.
We know that seeking counseling is an important decision, and one you may have been considering for weeks, months, or even years.

We pride ourselves on not operating with a waiting list. We want to be ready to help you when you are ready to make a change. It can be overwhelming to think about telling your story to someone new.

It would be our honor to walk with you on this journey of healing and growth.
