Psychotherapy at Wildflower provides a space in which discussing feelings about your sexual self, sexual history, orientation and identity, beliefs, struggles and hopes can lead to meaningful change and improvement in your experience of that very important part of yourself. Often clients feel uncomfortable bringing up these topics for fear that it will make the therapist uncomfortable or that it would not be an appropriate disclosure. If it matters to you, it can and should be talked about in therapy.
Sex therapy approaches are as varied as the kinds of sexual problems that clients bring to therapy. We call on well-researched and evidence-based approaches when determining how to help. Frequently, mindfulness-based interventions are utilized. Cognitive Behavior Therapy methods might be used to help you reframe and challenge unhelpful core beliefs related to your sexuality. Somatic therapy approaches and related interventions focused on connecting with your body in a way that feels safe and judgment-free might also be called on. Treatment will be eclectic and individualized to your needs and preferences.
