We get a lot of requests for referrals for local sex therapists, and Melissa Fritchle is usually our go-to for anything beyond what this lil' sex educator can handle. Aside from being a Holistic Psychotherapist, Melissa is also a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in Sex Therapy and Couples Therapy, as well as a Gender Specialist who is also LGBTQ-sensitive, with a great passion for promoting sex-positivity (note- she also teaches classes at our shop from time to time).
While finding the right therapist may be a challenge of its own, one of the main obstacles we are seeing for those seeking sex therapy is that of a financial one as many folks are living without insurance, and many insurance plans may not even cover this type of appointment. The good news: Melissa provides options! To start, she offers a free consultation to see if she is even the right fit for you, which is extremely important as therapy is a very personal experience, where some therapists may be better equipped to cater to your needs than others. She also offers a few sliding-scale spots for those who cannot afford her regular rates (note- these spot fill up quickly!). And to top it all off, she writes a wonderful blog that is basically packed with FREE sex and relationship advice! Check. It. Out!
