Sexual Health Coaching & Intimacy Therapy

Dr. Mark Ackerman provides expert evaluation and treatment for a full range of sexual functioning difficulties at his Atlanta, GA office.

Difficulties such as low sexual desire, erectile disorders including ED, orgasm difficulty and sexual performance anxiety can cause a high level of individual and relationship distress but can be overcome through sex therapy. Some couples struggle with their sexual relationship due to incompatible sexual desires, anxiety around sexual performance, or difficulty with expression of sexual needs. Medications including Viagra and Cialis do not always make things better and sometimes can create other problems within relationships.  In addition, there is not as yet an effective Viagra-type pill for females, and due to depression, medication side effects, relationship conflict or trauma women may also struggle with sexual difficulties. Some individuals experience confusion about their sexual orientation and need a professional that they can confide in. Some of the sexual health issues that I have expertise both diagnosing and treating include as follows:

  • low/inhibited sex drive
  • erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • premature ejaculation
  • incompatible sexual desire within relationships
  • performance anxiety
  • anorgasmia (inability to reach orgasm in both men and women)
  • dyspareunia and vaginismus (painful intercourse in women)
  • confusion concerning sexual orientation and "coming out" challenges

More general issues that impact sex and relationships can also be addressed through specialized counseling techniques that focus on:

  • internet pornography and compulsive sexual behavior (“sex addiction”)
  • medical conditions that impact sexual functioning
  • rekindling sexual desire in lifelong relationships
  • overcoming affairs, betrayal and infidelity
  • dating skills
  • STD prevention/safe sex counseling
  • sex education
