How Sex Therapy Can Relieve the Stresses of Anxiety and Depression

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Thursday, February 20, 2014

For couples seeking sex therapy, the personal and emotional aspects of why they are seeking assistance can render the search for guidance, making it daunting if not altogether overwhelming. Dr. Grieco, a leading psychologist among Orlando sex therapy counselors, was trained at the very place where the practices of sex therapy were born. 

Dr. Grieco speaks to both individuals and partners, but does advise his clients that partner sessions are generally much more effective in situations involving both the individual and an intimate partner. He has guided both couples and individuals through every sexual concern or issue imaginable.  By addressing these issues, he has also helped a wide variety of individuals relieve the stresses of anxiety and depression that affect their daily lives. 

While sex therapy is not covered by most insurance policies, it may be covered as an extension of treatment for the conditions of anxiety, depression, or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. For many clients, one spectrum does not exist without the other. Issues of mistrust, unfaithfulness, gender confusion, mismatched sex drives, fetishes, addictions, sexual trauma survival and more can indeed affect a persons’ everyday life, as well as the lives of those around them. All of these issues and more fall into Dr. Grieco’s area of expertise. 

The frustration of a couple attempting to solve these problems and encountering one roadblock after the other can quickly overflow into other areas of their relationship, causing further feelings of friction and turmoil. Whether clients are facing a newly discovered concern, or are caught in the downward spiral of fighting for a solution to no avail, having a non-biased outside party such as that of Dr. Grieco, or any of the other counselors at Psychological Associates in Orlando, Florida, can be the very blessing that the doctor ordered.

Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Deborah O. Day, Psy.D - Thursday, November 07, 2013

 Hypnotherapyhas almost always been considered “alternative” medicine, but recent developments in the art of hypnosis have shown how hypnotherapy can help someone access repressed thoughts and memories, as well as develop relaxation and anti-anxiety techniques. Hypnosis is used most often to treat phobias, anxiety, sleep disorders, PTSD, and to augment grief counseling.


Whether specific scientists believe in its power to access buried memories, they cannot die the healing and stress-relieving properties of the procedure. Those who undergo hypnosis to help with their smoking or overeating habits have seen considerable success, suggesting that this procedure is effective in behavior modification. For this reason, some parents may elect for their child to undergo hypnotherapy as part of a psychological evaluation, in order to fully understand why, in times of stress, like that of a divorce, the child is acting out, and also to help the child develop appropriate ways to deal with his stress and anxiety.
