"Sex Therapy addresses two major components of healthy sexual functioning- sexuality and dysfunctions. client's sexuality is a key component in many relational and individual issues. No matter how you identify, your sexuality and your sense of your sexual self are major factors in determining your preferences and sexual behaviors.Sometimes, these interconnecting parts do not fit well together and can cause distress in your life. A sex therapist may be able to help you find out how to integrate pieces of your sexual identity, your social conditioning and your sexual preferences so that you can feel whole and content in your experience of your sexuality.While calling something "dysfunctional" can sound scary and judgmental, identifying the kind of problem someone is having helps professionals in medicine, mental health and other disciplines find the right treatment for the concerns you have. Medical providers, therapists and even insurance companies can all communicate in a common language when discussing a sexual dysfunction. Proper identification also helps you and your professional team agree on a treatment plan or course of action."
