My name is Brandy and I would love the opportunity to help you!
I have a specialized individual therapy boutique practice where I help womxn address distress (physical and/or emotional) that limits their ability to experience satisfying sex. Factors that may influence distress include but are not limited to: vaginismus, dyspareunia, sexual trauma, low desire, emotional stressors, identity and self esteem, etc.
Many people are unsure of what sex therapy is. Sex Therapy is a form of talk therapy in which the client(s) and therapist collaborate to address factors (medical, psychological, interpersonal, social and personal) that contribute to a lack of sexual satisfaction. A Sex Therapist can carry a degree and license in Education, Psychology, Social Work, Psychiatry, and Marriage and Family Therapy. They are professionals with training beyond the basic understanding of human sexuality. Many times they are part of interdisciplinary teams which can include Physicians, Endocrinologists, Gynecologists, Urologists and Physical Therapists specializing in pelvic floor issues. These medical providers will often refer to Sex Therapists when someone experiences emotional distress and decreased quality of life related to sexual concerns.
