Well I'm excited that you've asked this question, because so many people are struggling with sexual difficulties or sexual health concerns. And they feel like they don't know where to turn, or they try to go to the internet, or self-help. And there's nothing quite like the experience of speaking with a qualified expert. And so the first thing you need to know is that sex therapy really requires specialized training. There are many people who are psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists who have varying levels of degree of expertise, or understanding specifically about assessing, and practically helping clients who have sexual difficulties. So absolutely, I would recommend that you find someone who feels like a good fit. And part of that is also searching out someone who has the specialized training. There are several organizations. One of them I highly recommend is ASECT, which is the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. And they actually have a therapist finder by state. So it's a great place to start. And recognizing that that person has had countless hours of human sexuality education, clinical sex therapy training, as well as hours of supervision, hundreds of hours of supervision. And so, ultimately it's recognizing, regardless of your sexual health concern, there is treatment available. And with the right professional they're gonna help you get right back up on track. And give you the skills and tools you need to have the sex that you want.
