How therapy can benefit your sex life

If you’ve noticed trouble expressing yourself emotionally or sexually with your partner, consider speaking with a licensed therapist to get to the root of the problem. Many people attend couples or sex therapy online through virtual platforms. Patients frequently said the reduced costs and wait time, as well as the ability to receive treatment from home, were the primary draws to virtual therapy. 

Therapists often use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help people recognize and correct their harmful or unhelpful habits, thoughts, and behaviors. Research shows online CBT treatments can be as effective as in-person appointments. Online couples therapy can also be a viable alternative to face-to-face treatment, according to a recent study.
