If you are unhappy with your sex life or feel disconnected from your partner, sex therapy or couples therapy can help. Dr. Rucker is the gold standard when it comes to dealing with sexual problems and relationship issues! She helps individuals and couples in the Lower Mainland as well as providing telephone sessions for people living in other parts of Canada.

If communication and sex in your relationship have been difficult or unsatisfying, you might feel like throwing in the towel. You may find that your relationship has lost its spark. The passion is gone. Sex isn’t what it used to be, if it happens at all.

Maybe you and your partner are constantly arguing or perhaps rarely speak to one another. Perhaps you go to bed making sure you don’t touch one another, or intentionally go to bed at different times, or maybe you don’t even sleep together anymore.

Finally I found someone I could really feel comfortable talking to about such private things as my sex life. I never believed such change was possible — I only wish that my husband and I had gone for such specialized counselling years ago. My inability to have intercourse and the pain I was having were ruining my life. Dr. Rucker helped me find the right gynecologist and a pelvic physiotherapist to help me. Now I can finally have normal sex.
