Our sexuality is at the core of our being. It’s a way we express ourselves, find connection, get release and create meaning. Oftentimes partners struggle to find that balance and access all their potential. Past sexual trauma can have a negative impact on the way people experience and express their sexuality. Disconnection and difficulty tolerating emotional intimacy can lead to a lack of sexual desire or sexual dysfunction. Health issues and medications can affect the way our body functions sexually and it might be necessary to get help from a knowledgeable provider that has resources and can make appropriate referrals.
