Do you find yourself thinking that sex is not as carefree, enjoyable, spontaneous, or fulfilling as you would like it to be?

Are you finding that sexual satisfaction is different between you and your partner, or has changed over time? You are not alone with this perception since between 75 and 80 percent of all adult males and females experience sexual difficulties at some point in their lives.

Are you concerned about differing sex drives, lack of sexual desire between partners, difficulty having an orgasm, problems maintaining arousal, early or delayed ejaculation, or painful intercourse?

Are you struggling to move past sexual trauma, sexual shame or taboos, healing from affairs, or compulsive sexual behaviour that is hurting your relationship?

Are you curious about open relationships, different sexual lifestyles, and forms of expression?

Sex therapy addresses issues that are as varied as each person who seeks help, whether as an individual, couple, or other relationship composition. It is not necessary for a person to be in a relationship to benefit from sex therapy. In fact, sexual concerns are often major factors which prevent people from forming satisfying relationships. People of all ages, abilities, sexual orientations, genders, faiths, and cultures benefit from sex therapy and are welcomed by Mary-Jean. People from all walks of life experience sexual difficulties and require sexual information.

What is Clinical Sex Therapy?

Clinical sex therapy is an area of specialization requiring post graduate training, supervision, and expertise beyond the ordinary requirements of professional counselling. Clinical sex therapy involves treatment approaches to sexual problems and relationship issues as they relate to health, intimacy, and sexuality. As a Certified Clinical Sex Therapist through the American Board of Sexology, Mary-Jean provides a safe and non-judgmental space to help individuals and couples of all genders and orientations who are working through sexual and interpersonal issues in order (re)build a healthy and satisfying sexuality. Mary-Jean also helps people in polyamorous relationships clarify concerns and resolve difficulties surrounding all aspects of their lives. Clinical sex therapy does not involve nudity and is confidential.
