Sex Therapist Beverly Hills
Fortunately, psychotherapy can be very effective at helping people move past their barriers to happiness. If you’re looking for an experienced and licensed clinical sex therapist in Beverly Hills, Blair Wellness Group can help. Dr. Cassidy Blair is a renowned relationship and sex therapist who can help you identify the cause of your sexual challenges or concerns. With her expert and professional guidance, she can help you (and your partner, if appropriate) to resolve your challenges by creating a personalized treatment and counseling plan that addresses your specific needs.
Sexuality is more than just a physical activity, it refers to sexual preferences, personal values, and feelings related to body image, among other things. The habits, thoughts, and behaviors surrounding sexuality are often influenced by religious and cultural norms — and those laws about sexuality can vary depending on the time and place. Problems often arise when someone feels embarrassed or ashamed of their sexuality because it doesn’t fit within the standard of what’s acceptable within their family or culture. They might also feel confused or have concerns about their sexual interests or behavior and as a result, have difficulty forming positive relationships or achieving sexual satisfaction.
There are many different types of sexual problems — some are mental, some are physical, and many are a combination of both. There are several physical causes that can affect sexual satisfaction including certain health conditions, hormone imbalance, and side-effects of taking some medications.
Many sexual disorders also arise from mental health-related issues such as depression, stress, anxiety, PTSD, unhealthy relationships, and problems with body image. Because these causes are rooted in psychological and emotional health, a professional sex therapist can assist by talking through your concerns, helping you better understand your sexual needs, and identifying ways to overcome your barriers to happiness.
Types of Sexual Dysfunction
It is estimated that almost half of all women and almost a third of all men experience some kind of sexual dysfunction during their lifetime. This is helpful to know because many people are embarrassed or ashamed to talk about their sexual health. Once a strictly taboo topic of discussion, sexuality is now considered a very important part of mental and physical health.
Sexual dysfunction can be personal or involve a partner, and it can range from mildly distressing to all-encompassing — affecting how you feel about yourself, about others, and preventing you from living a happy and healthy life.
Some of the most common sexual dysfunctions and concerns include:
- Low libido
- Erectile dysfunction
- Inability to reach orgasm
- Premature ejaculation
- Sex addiction
- Concerns about sexual interests
- Concerns about sexual orientation
- Problems related to sexual abuse
Sex therapy can help you work through and resolve many sexual issues so you can have a healthier and more fulfilling sex life. It can also help if you are having difficulty communicating with your partner or are suffering from a lack of intimacy.
Complications Related to Sexual Dysfunction
In addition to the primary concerns, sexual dysfunction can also create additional complications. For instance, it can influence mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. If the dysfunction results in the termination of a relationship, a person may also have grief and loneliness to contend with. To cope with their sexual concerns and relationship issues, some people may turn to unhealthy and maladaptive behaviors such as drinking, drug use, or promiscuity, which often only makes matters worse.
Sex therapy is used to help people move past physical and emotional challenges in order to have a more satisfying relationship and pleasurable sex life. People seeking help for sexual issues are often looking to resolve problems related to arousal and performance, but they may also want to address sexual fears, relationship issues, sex addiction, or distressing sexual thoughts.
Sexual dysfunction can affect your relationships, emotional health, and overall quality of life — which is why it’s important to seek help from a licensed psychologist who can help you work through your challenges. Sex therapy is not unlike other forms of psychological treatment in that it includes various evidence-based treatment modalities and talk therapy to address negative thoughts and emotions to find the underlying cause of the problem. By doing so, an experienced and qualified sex therapist can help someone achieve better mental health and well-being by treating the whole person from the inside out.
