Provo Utah Based LDS Gospel-Centered Sex Therapy
Issues of Sexual Desire, Arousal, Orgasm, Pain, Satisfaction
Our goal is to improve all facets of couple intimacy by addressing the sensitive needs and issues that can prevent healthy and fulfilling sexual relationships. Most of our clients are conservative LDS individuals or couples that are seeking to find more joy and pleasure in their sex life. We are sensitive to the needs and values of LDS individuals and couples, but are trained to get to the heart of your intimate issues without you feeling as though you must depart from your value system. Covenant Sex Therapy truly specializes in sex therapy. This means that we don't claim to specialize in 10 different therapeutic issues. If you were having severe life threatening problems with your heart, you would go to a Cardiologist, not anyone else. Likewise, if you are having problems in your sex life, you should go to someone specialized in sex therapy.

Our training and personal religious affliliation doesn't preclude us from working with clients of different faiths or of no religion. We welcome all that are trying to improve their intimate relationship. This is a paramount part of life and the couple relationship!

Many couples that don't have any of the above sexual dysfunctions still find that they are struggling in their sexual relationship. There are many reasons as to why this is so.

Others have past experiences with another or their spouse that prevents them from being able to enjoy the sexual experience.
