Approach to Sexual Health
Dr. Chavez’s passion is breaking down the taboos around sexuality and helping individuals and couples become more sexually empowered.
Dr. Chavez utilizes a Mind-Body Approach to sexual health and wellness. It is important to use an integrated approach to understand the roles of both mind and body in sexual functioning.
Medical doctors and therapists that do not specialize in sexuality are often limited in their ability to assess and treat sexual concerns. And many people are searching for that “magic pill” or “quick fix” to make all their issues vanish. The trouble with that approach is that sexuality is not just a physical or medical issue; it is emotional, mental, and psychological as well. It is a part of your being, it affects your whole well-being, and it deserves more than just a band-aid solution.
Dr. Chavez takes into account ALL factors that affect a client’s sexual health, including beliefs and values, feelings, culture and religion, experiences, and more.
Together with Dr. Chavez, you will explore values and beliefs regarding sexuality, learn about sexual anatomy and the science of sex, and develop behavioral exercises to improve sexual functioning.
