Many people experience difficulties in maintaining healthy sexual relationships. Changes in sexual functioning, medical illnesses, marital concerns, financial difficulties, and mental health challenges can all significantly affect an individual's sexual functioning. Individuals may struggle with managing many common emotions or feelings, such as loneliness, embarrassment, or guilt. Left untreated, some individuals may find themselves experiencing additional mental health concerns: depression and anxiety. The key is to understand the importance of how to construct a healthy sexual relationship in your life. The good news is that we don't have to live quietly with these feelings. Allowing ourselves to explore more intimate areas of our lives can potentially unlock doors that greatly enhance our sexual being. By participating in sex therapy, individuals can gain the skills necessary to create an environment for fulfilling and intimate relationships.
