Sex therapy is a specialized form of counseling for adults that focuses on sexual issues, most often for individuals in relationships (although you do not need to be in a relationship to seek sex therapy).

Sex therapy is usually solution focused. This means that the Geri Carter will try to help you develop a clearly defined issue and the goal of therapy will be to work on that issue and resolve it, or find a way to make whatever problems it causes have less of an impact on your life and sex life. Commonly sex therapy will focus on a sexual dysfunction or major sexual communication problems between partners.

Sex therapy is usually brief, lasting anywhere from a few sessions to more than a dozen sessions.

Sex therapy is usually educational and directive.

As a term and practice, sex therapy is regulated in the state of Florida by the Department of Health, meaning that therapists who call themselves a sex therapist in Florida have a current license to practice counseling and have obtained the extra required 120 hours of training in sex therapy. Geri Carter is licensed as an LMHC and has obtained the extra 120 hours and is Certified as a Sex Therapist in Florida.
