The Center for Sexual and Marital Health
The Center for Sexual and Marital Health is a specialized outpatient clinic of the Department of Psychiatry that provides therapy for individuals and couples who are experiencing relationship and sexual problems. Treatment of all the male and female sexual dysfunctions is offered as well as evaluation of gender identity disorders and unconventional sexual behavior. Both pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy are available.
The Center has been in existence since 1972 and patients are referred from our colleagues in urology, gynecology, family medicine and psychiatry, as well as self-referred. Interns are encouraged to provide therapy to a variety of both male and female clients over the course of the year. Both group and individual supervision are offered. Sex Therapy Trainees will have the opportunity to serve as group facilitators during the nationally recognized week-long Human Sexuality Program offered to medical students and other health professionals each January.
