Clinical Sexologists who are also trained as psychotherapists, and who work with the treatment and diagnosis of sexual concerns and dysfunction may be referred to as sex therapists. Sex Therapy represents a subspecialty of psychotherapy that focuses on the concerns of human sexuality. In most states and provinces, Sex Therapy is not specifically regulated as a profession as a subspecialty profession. People of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, partnered or single, and health status may benefit from working with a psychotherapist who specializes in this area.
Clinical Sexologists bring a unique perspective to psychotherapy that provides a sex-positive, compassionate environment for addressing the diversity of sexual expression, issues, and concerns.
