Living with painful sex and vaginismus can feel so hopeless. 

Is sex painful for you?

Have you learned that sex is supposed to hurt? 

Are you “pushing through” the pain during sex after birth?

Often, when we ignore unwanted sexual pain it can cause harm. 

In this educational course, we offer information about where pain comes from, how to manage sexual discomfort, exercises that help to enhance pleasure, and expanding the definition of sex!

Vaginismus (also known as High Tone Pelvic Floor or Genito-Pelvic Pain and Penetration Disorder/GPPPD) can impact: 

Self Esteem and Body Image

Feelings of brokenness
Our intimate relationship(s) leading to conflict and distance

The good news is you are NOT broken!

A primary focus of our clinical practices is helping clients

navigate sexual pain. 

Our goal for this informational course is to offer resources that can help in your own journey of healing. 

We hope this webinar is helpful. Please stay tuned for our upcoming therapeutic processing group on Vaginismus, Painful Sex, & More.
