Connecting Women's Sexual and Mental Health

Helping With Your Most Personal Concerns

Sexual Health concerns can impact women and non-binary individuals born female at birth of any age after puberty. From concerns about your arousal, libido, or discomfort during intercourse, we are trained to help you address these intimate concerns.

We know that talking about your sexual health and how it relates to mental health can feel intimidating and even embarrassing. Therapists at Ally Psych are trained to help you feel as comfortable as possible with this important conversation.

Understanding What’s Going On

Your sexual and mental health are intimately connected. How stressed, anxious, depressed, or angry you are can impact your performance, mood, and comfort during sex. Other factors that impact your sexual health can include traumas or drug and alcohol use. We know this can be difficult to talk about and that many people are shamed for even bringing it up, but our Doylestown therapists at Ally Psych are trained to help you feel safe, comfortable, and in control every step of the way.

In case you’re wondering if this is something you should bring up to your therapist, here are some common signs and symptoms of Women’s Sexual Health concerns.
