I am a systemically trained relationship therapist who has specialized training in sex therapy. I work from a sex positive approach that respects and supports sexual expression, experiences and exploration of all kinds within the context of full, enthusiastic consent between all those involved.
Working with a sex therapist can help clients overcome challenges and feel joyful and confident in their sexuality both with one’s self and within relationships.
Sex is an essential aspect of our well-being and of strong, connected, intimate partnerships.
When we can develop confident, empowered sexual identities and can express ourselves in a confident, joyful and empowered way, we create satisfying, affirming, loving, life-giving experiences and interactions.
If we choose it to be so, our sexuality can be a powerful conduit for love.
It has tremendous potential to restore a sense of connection to self and others and to the world in which we live; a sense of wholeness; a sense of TRULY being ALIVE.
Sexuality offers us the experience of being fully in our bodies, being fully in the present moment, and giving and receiving without judgment, shame, and cultural constraints.
However, for many of us, this is not the experience of sex.
Often, humans experience the shadow side of sexuality; which is the side in which we experience the destructiveness of betrayal, trauma, pain and grief, exclusion, judgment, shame, isolation, rejection, and deep disconnection from self and other.
And when humans experience the shadow side of sexuality, it is so profound, that we can even lose faith and hope in the healing, transformative power of love.
If our sexual life and relationships are suffering, it is difficult to feel fully alive and engaged with life. We know something is missing. And usually, we blame either ourselves or our partners, which then makes our suffering even greater.
Ryan Therapy Services is passionate about helping clients explore their own and their partner(s) eroticism and sexuality in a sex-positive, non-judgmental, supportive context.
Many cultural forces work to define sex from a negative, shame-based and fear-based perspective. As a result of these powerful cultural influences, many individuals struggle with feelings of anxiety, shame, and guilt around their own sexuality. Adding to this, for many of us, is a lack of quality sexual education.
A sex-positive approach is a way of thinking about sex and integrating sexuality into one’s life and relationships with acceptance, a non-judgmental attitude, curiosity, respect, and trust. It embraces all kinds of sexual activity and expression as long as it is consensual and does not hurt others.
It moves away from thinking about sex from a “performance-based” model and moves toward thinking about sex as a positive, loving force originating in one’s deepest erotic self.
