Foundations Counseling offers couples sex therapy in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor. A healthy relationship requires a balance between a couple’s sexual relationship and their emotional connection. For some, a happy sex life is the first thing to suffer when relationship problems arise. For others, it is the last remaining bond a couple can share when all else fails. Couples sex counseling can help you return to your desired level of emotional and sexual intimacy.
Optimal sexuality involves healthy, affirming feelings about our sexuality, which enriches our lives. It allows us to enjoy and control our sexual and reproductive behavior without guilt, fear, shame, or disease. Sexual expression is a form of communication through which we give and receive pleasure and emotion. It has a wide range of possibilities – from sharing activities, feelings, thoughts, warm touches, or hugs, to physical intimacy.
Sexual problems are often symptoms of other issues within a marriage or relationship. When the lines of communication are closed and you and your partner feel resentment toward one other, it can be difficult to be open sexually. Feeling “emotionally numb” in your relationship often leads to feeling “sexually numb” toward your partner. If this sounds familiar, consider pursuing couples sex therapy.
Many couples in sex therapy complain of frequency discrepancies. One partner may feel that having sex once a week is adequate, while the other may feel that anything less frequent than daily sex falls short of his or her expectations. With the assistance of a sex counselor, frequency discrepancies are often resolved through compromise so that the needs of both partners can be met.
Couples seek sex therapy for a number of reasons, including low sexual desire, loss of emotional intimacy, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, sex that has become “too routine,” disagreements as to who should initiate sex, discomfort regarding sexual fantasies, and dealing with sex after an affair. Some of our other specialties include sex therapy and counseling for sexual addictions, alternative lifestyles, adults who were molested or abused as children, problems related to gender identity, and adult virginity.
