Adults of any gender or sexual orientation may seek the services of a sexologist/sexuality counselor. The presenting concern might be a sexual dysfunction (such as erectile dysfunction or vaginismus), shame, body image issues, fantasies, sexual enrichment questions, orgasm difficulties, gender issues, and/or the impact of aging or chronic health conditions on sexuality, etc. – all within the context of consensual adult relationships.
Plan on a 4-6 session program, which will be customized for your needs and interests. Sessions may be online through thera-LINK (HIPPA-compliant, fully-encrypted) or in the office.
Partnered Relationships: Couples & Intimate Multiples
People in partnered relationships may be of any gender or sexual orientation, and may range from monogamous partnerships to open and non-monogamous relationships (and everything in-between!). In addition to the above individual concerns, they may seek the services of a sexologist/sexuality counselor to also manage sexual conflicts such as desire discrepancies.
Prerequisite for Partner Counseling Sessions:
Prior to sessions addressing the couple’s/multiple’s primary concerns, Dr. Marsh requires both/all partners to attend a two-hour version of her “Secrets of Successful Couples” class (based on PrepInc curriculum.). This is to ensure that communication and conflict management skills are in place before attempting counseling work. This class creates the foundation for interaction both within and away from the counseling sessions. Though “couples” are referenced in the title, the principles are very adaptable for larger, intimate partnerships (poly, swinging, etc.).
- A pre-taped, two-hour, online version of her “Secrets of Successful Couples/Prep. Inc.” course. ($20.00).
- A private, live, two-hour, online version of this course, taught by Dr. Marsh. ($60.00).
If necessary, Dr. Marsh may recommend the full six-hour course, to ensure maximum opportunities for communcation success during the counseling phase. PrepInc.com is a research-based course used world-wide.
- Pre-taped, six-hour, online version. ($75.00).
- A private, live, six-hour, online version of the course (taught in six sessions, 1 hour per session) ($180.00).
After successful completion of the class, sessions may be scheduled online through thera-LINK (HIPPA-compliant, fully-encrypted) or in the office. Plan initially on four to six sessions, customized to your needs. (Sometimes work may be extended beyond six sessions.)
