Struggling with sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, erection, ejaculation or overall confidence and comfort with sex is common. You are not alone, and overcoming these issues is possible. These struggles can be related to anxiety, discomfort with our bodies or pleasure, or previous negative sexual experiences. We often feel shame or embarrassment when talking about sex, even with our romantic and sexual partners. I offer an authentic, accepting and collaborative space for individuals who are seeking therapy to work through some of these issues.
"Unprecedented" "Pandemic" "New Normal" Masks and COVID were uncommon terms prior to the past year. None of us could have imagined the significant changes and loss ahead of us as 2020 launched.

While it appears the pandemic will be here with us for quite a while longer, we may feel like we've lost control of our own lives. We can; however, prevent long-term psychological damage. KidStuff Counseling, P.C. can help you support your children, family and self through these difficult days.
For so long, all you can remember is tired, or sad, or angry. Self-doubt is crippling, and you know what you should do but cannot seem to get yourself to do it. There is no light at the end of the tunnel, no silver lining. Anxiety takes over and it feels like the whole world is pressing down. The days your bed seems to suck you in because it is the only place where you can hide. Relationships in your life are no help because they are unfulfilling and painful. You don't understand why you keep going back to the same toxic people. You feel like shattering.

When life challenges us, it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we are supposed to go it alone. Having other people walking alongside us can feel vulnerable, so we try to hide the pain and shame and pretend like everything is okay when it isn't. Maybe you feel lonely and disconnected in your relationship, or maybe you struggle to see your own inner worth. Either way, asking for help can be hard, but if we work together, I believe that we can find a path forward together!
