Answering Common Questions
What is Sex Therapy?
Good question! Sex therapy is a commonly misunderstood area of relationship counseling. It may be helpful to think of this as being a compilation of three foci: “Christian + Sexuality + Counseling.”
We believe that Christ designed sexuality to be a diverse and enjoyable reflection of His nature, and that sexuality is much more than the act of intercourse. Your sexuality is evident the way you esteem yourself, your desire to connect with a friend and, yes, the intimate physical expression you share with your significant other.
Because sexuality is so close to your spiritual, mental and emotional health, it can be especially devastating when past hurts, physical challenges, long-lasting compulsions, broken relationships, and shame inhibit your ability to fully enjoy sex. The trained and certified therapists at Building Intimate Marriages integrate a foundation of faith with extensive research on how relationships impact sexual functioning, and partner with you to find desirable solutions.
