How Long Does Sex Therapy Take?

Professional sex therapy is usually short-term, and is provided by a psychologist, a physician or a trained sex therapist.  Weekly therapy sessions, based on at-home assignments, can range from a few weeks to a few months, depending on what needs to be addressed for a particular difficulty.

For the sake of their sexual health and happiness, individuals or couples who are experiencing sexual problems should not wait to get help.  If you think, wish or hope that the issues troubling you will go away on their own, the truth is that sexual problems rarely, if ever, resolve themselves.  Sex therapy can get you started on a path to healing the underlying issues that are negatively affecting your life and your relationships.

I have been treating patients with sexual problems since 1977, and have helped many people with a wide range of sexual difficulties.  It is natural to feel embarrassed about a sex-related problem, but there is an excellent chance that your issues can be reversed through sex therapy, medical treatment, or a combination of both.  Whatever you are experiencing, you are not alone; there are caring professionals available to help you.
