The world is full of references to sex. When you are suffering with a sexual issue or painful sexual history, each media reference to sex is painful. It is impossible for most adults to go very long without thinking about sex. When you are trying to break free from a sexual issue, every mention or thought of sex is wrought with emotion. When you call to connect with a Thriveworks Marietta counselor or therapist, you are beginning the process of creating a new normal. Let us walk with you in defining your problem, understanding its root, and creating a plan for victory over it.
There are a wide range of sexual issues, and sadly, they can affect people of all ages. Children, obviously, should know nearly nothing about sex. Yet, it is a sad reality of society today that some children have knowledge of sexual behavior. Whether you are looking for help for your child, teen, your relationship, or your spouse, Thriveworks Marietta, GA counselors and therapists can help.
Perhaps you are not trying to work on a specific problem, but rather are attempting 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
- Sexual impulses and compulsions
While this is not a complete list, it is a great starting point for figuring out the general area of your problem. Thriveworks Marietta counselors and sex therapists can help you determine your exact issue, and then journey with you on solving it.
If you and your spouse or partner are having difficulty with sexual intimacy, this can flow over into many different areas of your life. When a couple is having trouble in the bedroom, communication can become strained, and distance can be created. When these problems are ongoing, they build upon each other and can create a deep divide between two people who still love and care for each other a great deal. Thriveworks Marietta sex therapists and counselors can help each individual in a relationship understand their role in the sexual issue, and work to redefine and recreate the intimacy they lost.
