Joanne Bagshaw, PhD, LCPC, Counselor in Gaithersburg
Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy we address the psychological issues underneath sexual problems by exploring your concerns and feelings about sex and intimacy. I use a sex-positive approach and work with straight, gay, and bisexual individuals and couples of any lifestyle.
Would you like to: Eliminate painful sex? Understand what causes infidelity, and it's impact on your relationship? Recover from an affair? Learn how to increase desire? Have a satisfying relationship with your partner even though you have different levels of desire? Explore alternative life styles in your relationship?
If you're nervous about talking about sex, don't worry, I'll make you feel comfortable, and you'll feel supported and empowered. My goal is to help you reach your potential, and live an authentic life that's filled with fun and pleasure.
