Sexual Problems

Dallas Counseling for Sexual Problems

Concerns with sexual functioning are most common in the early adult years, with the majority of people seeking support during their late 20s through 30s. However, both men and

 women can encounter concerns with sexual functioning at any stage of life. 
Sexual dysfunctions are typically classified into four categories: sexual desire disorders, sexual arousal disorders, orgasm disorders, and sexual pain disorders. A problem may develop gradually over time, or the concern may occur suddenly as a total or partial inability to participate in one or more stages of the sexual act. The causes of sexual difficulties can be physical, psychological, or both. Psychological factors can include interpersonal issues such as relationship problems or psychological concerns such as depression, anxiety, guilt, or past sexual trauma.
