Emotionally Focused Informed Sex Therapy in Marietta GA
Sex therapy helps individuals and couples improve their intimate sexual relationships. Our therapists bring an attachment based approach to sexual intimacy through the Emotionally Focused Therapy model. At The Relationship House, we recognize that sexual intimacy is affected by the level of emotional responsiveness and attachment security a couple experiences in their relationship. Negative patterns of interaction and deeper relational fears inhibit the sexual system. We focus on helping couples exit negative patterns of interaction that block sexual closeness. We promote secure connection in the relationship that soothes fears and releases blocks to sexual intimacy. Safe emotional connection fosters great sex, AND great sex creates deeper emotional connection.
Sexual intimacy can also be affected by physical injuries, medical issues, mental health issues, and trauma. In sex therapy, couples will learn how to stay accessible, responsive, and engaged with each other around these issues, as well as learn new ways to approach their sexual experience together. Our sex therapy services are tailored to the individual needs of each person or couple, with the goal of helping them build healthier, more satisfying sexual relationships.
Satisfying, meaningful, and connecting sex is possible.
"Sex is emotion in motion." ~Mae West
