Sexuality and Sexual Counseling
Guiding you toward hope, wisdom, and joy.
No matter what the problem, we will work together towards a solution.
Change Stress Sex to Joy.
Human sexuality is not always developed naturally.
Rather, sexual attitudes and expressions are learned from parents, society, clergy, and others.
These sources can lead us away from sexual joy.
A Certified Christian Counselor and Sex Therapist, Dr. Rivest offers help for a wide range of sexuality issues, including:
The biggest problem today is Internet pornography, adultery, sexual fantasy..
These are sexually compulsive activities designed to “relieve” emotional stresses.
They include excessive masturbation, pornography, and adultery even with “seeming happily married couples.”
Sexual abuse happens through voyeurism, exposure, molestation, and violence.
Dr. Rivest can help people overcome sexual addictions by dealing directly with the source of their emotional stress.
Marital Sexual Enhancement
The biggest problem today is sexless marriages. The romance is gone.
Many married couples find that maintaining mutual sexual satisfaction over the long term is difficult.
Often intercourse is infrequent or there is a lack of sexual interest. Intercourse one time per month is considered a sexless marriage.
Dr. Rivest can help. He has counseled many couples, and helped them discover a more fulfilling and intimate sex life.
The biggest problem today is couples giving up because of sexual discouragement.
Couples struggle with sexual dysfunctions in even the best marriages.
Many men have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection, while others ejaculate prematurely.
Women often experience physical or emotional pain during intercourse, and have difficulty achieving orgasm.
Dr. Rivest helps couples communicate in ways that reduce demand, enhance pleasure, and facilitate natural sexual responses.

The biggest problem today is homosexuals try to live “normal lives” both in and outside of a heterosexual marriages.
Increasingly, men and women are struggling with sexual orientation.
They erroneously believe that homosexual behavior can bring intimacy.
They suffer emotional and social pain.
