Couples Counseling and Therapy in Berkeley, CA

Rose Schweig, LMFT
Sex Therapy in Berkeley, CA

Sex and intimacy are part of the human experience.

Discussing sex doesn't have to be laden with shame or concealed as a secret.

I create a safe space where you can talk about sex and intimacy without judgment.

Sex and intimacy are a universal part of the human experience, yet they’re rarely discussed openly. Many people hold unexpressed hopes and fears about sex. It’s time to break the silence. 

Whether you’re dealing with physical discomfort during sex, navigating issues of infidelity, or wrestling with self-consciousness about your body, you’re not alone. You might have unexplored fantasies or a desire to explore kink, but you’re unsure about communicating this to your partner.

Together we can address your concerns and work towards you having a more fulfilling sexual experience.

You’ve come to the right place to discuss your sexual concerns. Whether you’re looking for more or different experiences or are interested in opening up your relationship, therapy is a safe place to have these discussions and explore what you’re wanting. 

I provide compassionate support around issues like pain during sex or feelings of shame around desires and fantasies. Reach out today to learn more.

I often hear - ‘we used to have more sex.’

You’ve noticed a shift in the once-easy connection with your partner when it comes to sex and intimacy. You desire a fulfilling sex life without the struggle to maintain creativity and playfulness in the bedroom. And would like to understand when and why your sexual connection changed.

You’d like to have a sex life that is full and exciting

As a sex-positive therapist with extensive experience addressing a range of sexual issues, I am here to help you. You don’t have to navigate your concerns alone. I’ll guide you through discussions of topics you may be nervous to bring up and assist you to rekindle the spark in your relationship. I’m well-equipped to explore these matters and provide you with the support you need.

Parenting and sex can be compatible.

It’s common that having a child presents challenges to your sex life, including exhaustion and interruptions that make it difficult to reconnect with your partner sexually. However, this doesn’t have to be a permanent situation. 

Many parents express a desire to maintain intimacy despite fatigue and overwhelm. And seek assistance to balance their daily responsibilities, sustain their relationship, and nurture intimacy.

Reconnecting sexually with your partner after having a child is possible with the right support.

Navigating conversations about sex can be challenging, especially when you don’t know where to start. I create a compassionate environment and utilize effective sex therapy techniques to assist you in reconnecting and rediscovering creativity in the bedroom.

I provide effective sex therapy techniques in a non-judgmental environment.

Sex therapy sessions do not involve any physical contact or sexual activity between client and therapist.

Sex therapy can be helpful for:

  • Low sexual desire
  • Conflict over different sexual desire levels
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Inability to reach orgasm
  • Unconsummated marriages
  • Vaginismus
  • Arousal difficulty
  • Past sexual abuse
  • Affair recovery

Allow me to support you in identifying and effectively communicating your fears and desires to your partner(s).

As a poly and kink aware therapist, my goal is to help each client feel comfortable. I begin with questions about a client’s health, sexual background, beliefs about sex, and their specific concerns.

Therapy with me is a safe space to openly discuss sexual concerns and desires. 

I provide sex education as needed and work to destigmatize various topics that clients may feel isolated in, such as shame around having an STI or differing sexual preferences from their partner.

Hello, I’m Rose and I plan to complete certification as an AASECT certified sex therapist in 2024.

In my practice, I utilize effective interventions from the Institute for Relational Intimacy, Ester Perel, and other leading psychologists in the field. Additionally, I use somatic and art therapy interventions to explore sensitive topics.

In the midst of our busy lives, creativity and play can sometimes take a back seat.

Connecting with the more creative and less linear side of the brain supports discovery and openness to new possibilities.

At its core, sex is a playful act that requires relaxation and openness to exploration, and together, we can address and enhance this aspect of your life.
