Wanting a more satisfying sex life?

If this sounds like you, then you are in the right place.

Maybe you grew up thinking that sex and sexuality were taboo subjects. Maybe you have had some rough past relationships that have left you hesitant to trust someone sexually again. Or perhaps you are just not sure how to communicate about sex with your partner. Whatever the case may be, you’re probably feeling uncertain, anxious, and even embarrassed around the topic of sex. Perhaps you’re even wondering if you’re normal and if you can have the fulfilling sex life you really crave.

Whatever it is you are experiencing, sex therapy can help. Here are some most common reasons people work with a sex therapist:

It may feel impossible now, but you can feel more comfortable in your body and more comfortable during sex. You can stop the inner critic, have more self acceptance, and be more in the moment when it comes to sex. You can be more comfortable being yourself. And We can help you get there.
Dr. Elizabeth Polinsky

Frequently Asked Questions

Sex therapy and sexuality counseling are types of talk therapy to help your work through sex and sexuality concerns. The first few sessions will be spent getting to know one another, and making sure you and your therapist are both clear about what you are hoping to get out of the experience. You’ll talk lot about feelings to help you get clarity and work through any emotional reactions and limiting beliefs keeping you stuck. Your therapist will also help you clarify what you want out of your sex life and sexual relationship, and how to communicate clearly about your needs with your sexual partner. Through this process you’ll be learning tools to use in your day-to-day life. If needed, your therapist will offer referrals to other disciplines, such as psychiatry, primary care, etc. Most of all, your therapist will hold a non-judgmental and supportive space for you to explore your concerns around your sex life and sexuality.

*** Sex therapy does not involve any sexual touching between the therapist and clients.

​Sex therapy and sexuality counseling can be done through individual therapy or couples counseling. We use a combination of sex and sexuality education and evidenced based treatment approaches to address sexuality concerns depending on the goals. Generally, we help clients build more awareness and understanding of themselves, their sexuality, and how to navigate sexual relationships.

We meet with clients weekly and each session lasts for 60 minutes. It is hard to know how long therapy will take as many things impact how quickly progress can be made. Ultimately it is up to you how long you are in counseling. We will only continue if you are feeling that the therapy is helping you.

Our clinic has a 48-hour cancellation policy in order to allow us to pay our therapists for their time. If you miss your appointment or cancel in under 48-hours, you will be charged the full amount of the session.

The exception is Dr. Elizabeth Polinsky who only works with clients who are willing to be videotaped for training purposes. She works with clients on a weekly basis and has a reschedule only policy. We are happy to provide more information about this should you wish to work with her.

We do not take insurance and are not connected with Military One Source or the VA. All providers are out-of-network providers, which means that they do not bill insurance. We are happy to offer you the necessary paperwork (superbill) to file with your insurance provider for possible partial or full reimbursement. ​Please know that not all insurance plans offer reimbursement and that some may have a deductible or an allowable amount. It is best to call the number on the back of your insurance card and speak to a representative about what your specific benefits are. In addition, insurance companies typically only reimburse if the client has a diagnosable mental health condition. Your provider can talk this through with you at any time.
