Female Sex Therapist

 

Why see a female sex therapist?

Because who runs the world? Girls! [thanks Beyoncé!]

There are many reasons people call us and have a gender preference when it comes to choosing a therapist, here are a few:

 

  1. First and foremost, people sometimes feel more comfortable speaking about intimate topics with a particular gendered therapist.

 

  1. In our sex-saturated market, sometimes you may forget that sex is still a taboo topic. A lot of people mention that sometimes a female sex therapist is more comfortable to talk about “taboos” with.

 

  1. Many famous sex therapists struggled to find their place in the world. Even today, they are often met with resistance or criticism, but persist in spite of the challenges. Dr. Ruth helped with that and now many people associate sex therapists with a female sex therapist!

 

You can absolutely ask for a therapist of a specific sex or gender. In fact, when filling in most of the intake paperwork, you will see that our practice will ask if you have a preference for pronouns.

We know that seeking help from a professional isn’t easy, yet we are SO happy you did!

Our staff contains life coaches, national educators, sex therapists, and queer and kink-friendly professionals. We also specialize in same-sex relationships, gender reassignment, and non-monogamous relationship orientations.
