Sex Therapy at ICP

Although sexual problems are quite common sex is often a difficult topic to discuss.

Sex therapists at ICP are trained to work with both individuals and couples on common sexual challenges such as:

• Lack of sexual interest, low desire, sexual incompatibility.
• Premature ejaculation, erectile disorder, delayed ejaculation
• Painful sex, inhibited arousal, orgasm issues
• Problematic sexual urges, thoughts and behaviors
• Impulsive/compulsive use of porn
• Sex after infidelity
• Opening up a relationship, navigating consensual non-monogamy and polyamory
• Integrating kink, eroticized power play, and other forms of sexual adventure into one’s sex life
• Special issues related to LGBTQ sexualities
• Sex therapy with and gender non-conforming patients
• Working on relationship issues within which sexual problems are often embedded

We welcome all sexual orientations and take a sex-positive stance. ICP therapists use a multi-layered, biopsychosocial approach to exploring sexual issues, and our therapeutic approach is both psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral.

ICP’s services are aimed at helping diverse people across age, racial/ethnic identity, creed, color, sexual orientations, gender identity/expression, disability, and marital or relationship status/form.

About Our Sex Therapy:

The sex therapy we offer is often short-term and focused on improving communication and solving problems in an atmosphere of confidentiality, empathy, safety and thoughtful reflection. If you are already seeing a psychotherapist for individual or couples therapy, sex therapy can be structured as an adjunct to your current therapy. To that end, your ICP sex therapist will be happy to communicate with your primary therapist on an overall treatment plan that will not conflict with, but rather will enhance, your current therapy.

Please call 212-333-3444 to schedule your ICP intake and indicate your interest in sex therapy.
