Who can be a client?
Our clients come from all walks of life. Young adults, middle-aged, or seniors. Single or in a relationship. Sometimes it’s a new relationship, sometimes the couple has been together for 50 years. If they are in a relationship, the couple usually attends sessions together, but they may also come individually. We welcome clients who are gay or lesbian as well as those who are heterosexual, those who are able-bodied as well as those who have a disability, and those who are healthy as well as those with an illness or chronic medical condition.
Sexual concerns might be the primary problem or they might be a symptom of some other underlying issues. Some clients come in with one main concern, others have a number of problems and these may be interwoven. The therapist's job is to help sort it all out and resolve as many issues as possible — some aspects may need to be accepted if they cannot be changed. It is common to have mental health problems affect the sexual part of one's life. Sometimes the mental health problem in a person's family of origin (the family you grew up in) can contribute to problems in an adult's life. And of course, problems your partner can have a big impact on you. That is how systems operate. The good news is that changing the right elements can make a big difference in helping people feel better and enjoy their relationships more.
