Low Libido and DepressionDo you find yourself ending the day with no time set aside for sex? Has your partner mentioned that he wishes you would initiate intimacy between you, but you lack the energy or desire to make it happen?
Are you afraid that your inability to connect sexually is hurting your relationship?
Getting help for a low libido is your ticket to a stronger marriage
If the lack of intimacy in your relationship has caused your relationship with your partner to deteriorate, I can help.
Many women approach me for the first time after their partners have initiated a separation because of their lack of desire. Women tell me how devastated they are, and how they never thought it would come to this.
Sheila (fictional composite of several clients) says that she heard his complaints about her low libido and lack of sex life, but that she didn’t know what else to do to make it change. She tells me that she asked her doctor for information and referrals to therapists, and even went to therapy – but it didn’t help.
This may be because she saw a therapist that was great with anxiety and depression, or blended families, but not comfortable or skilled in helping resolve a sexual problem. It may seem odd in this day and age, but there are therapists who are embarrassed or unqualified to talk about sexual issues. But don’t be afraid to keep fighting for your relationship!
Sheila also says that she felt very ashamed to have this problem. She says she felt “defective” as a woman and a “failure as a wife”. It was embarrassing to make the first call, much less actually walk into my office and tell her story to a complete stranger. Of course, when she left, she felt understood, relieved, and hopeful that she would be able to conquer this problem.
If a low libido is threatening your marriage, there is help
Many difficulties in life have the potential to negatively affect your relationship: handling money, managing careers, facing conflict with a friend, parenting effectively, finding a suitable mate, controlling impulses; the list goes on and on. Sexual problems are no different.
