KIMBERLY SEELBREDE PROVIDES SEX THERAPY FOR COUPLES STRUGGLING WITH SEXUAL CONCERNS, LACK OF DESIRE AND an INABILITY TO COMMUNICATE ABOUT SEXUAL NEEDS. HER GOAL IS TO HELP CLIENTS WHO ARE CRAVING MORE EXPLORATION, SURPRISE, MYSTERY, NOVELTY, EXCITEMENT, DESIRE AND PASSION IN THEIR EROTIC LIVES.  Juicy, sacred sexuality generalizes into many aspects of our lives, creating renewed creativity, vibrancy and wholeness.

It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help regarding sexuality, and many have been suffering for years. I help couples and individuals connect to their sexual selves. Sex is a healthy and natural for of human expression. Sometimes situations such as negative or painful childhood or adult experiences interfere with healthy sexuality. This creates shame and confusion as well as terror and avoidance. I provide sex positive therapy to help couples restore intimacy and pleasure. Together, we will work to help you discover the psychological, emotional and physical factors contributing to your sexual concerns and lack of fulfillment and how you can overcome them. We will create a plan, you will feel supported as you transform your intimate life together. In a safe and affirming environment our sessions will include talk therapy and somatic work as appropriate. We will not only explore the specific problem you present in therapy but you will find more ease when communicating about sensitive topics.

Talking about sex from an education perspective is helpful, but only briefly. Successful sex therapy requires a deeper mind-body connection. As an EMDR Therapist and a clinician trained in other somatic therapies, I am skilled at helping clients integrate both thoughts and beliefs as well as a profound sense of body-awareness. Somatic therapy includes a technique called resourcing, which helps the client experience a deeper sense of embodiment as well as a fuller range of emotions. Resourcing is an important aspect of somatic therapy which involves helping you identify the places in your body where you feel safe, grounded and at ease in addition to where you may feel numb, tense and experience distress. Clients experience this integration of mind and body as extremely helpful and healing.
