When it comes to sensitive topics, sex is at the top of the list. It’s a highly charged, complex subject that many of us don’t like to talk about. We tend to try and “tough it out” when it comes to sexual issues, which can lead to huge problems later on. At Watershed, we are uniquely qualified to prevent those problems from happening – and help you work through them if they do.

Watershed Counseling’s Marti Witherow is Mississippi’s only board certified sex therapist. Her specialized training from the American Board of Christian Sex Therapists (ABCST) helps her address sexual intimacy related issues including:

  • Low Sexual Desire
  • Desire Discrepancy among Spouses
  • Compulsive Sexuality
  • Difficulty with Arousal or Reaching Orgasm
  • Emotional Issues Surrounding Infertility
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Ejaculation Difficulties
  • Sexual Addiction
  • Sexual Orientation Questions
  • Sexual Trauma
  • Pain During or After Intercourse
  • Premarital Assessment and Counseling
  • Postpartum Depression
  • Recovery from Extramarital Affairs
  • Unconsummated Marriages
  • Vaginismus

As a certified Christian sex therapist, Marti incorporates biblical scripture with high professional standards and excellent training to help couples, individuals and families deal with sensitive sex related concerns. She will also help you understand that you aren’t alone in dealing with these issues. Countless others have overcome these – and similar – problems through therapy alone, or by working with a medical doctor/sex therapist treatment team.

Medical Referrals

Marti is highly skilled at dealing with sexual issues that arise from medical conditions. She regularly receives referrals from OBGYNs and other medical professionals, and works in treatment teams with doctors and physical therapists to help clients remedy these issues. Coordinating with other caregivers is a service we provide to help you get the most out of your efforts. Working with a sex therapist throughout your recovery is a great way to ensure your success.

Many of our clients have struggled with depression, anxiety, obsessions, PTSD, and other issues that were too big to handle on their own.

There’s no magic solution. But the therapeutic process can, and has, helped people at virtually any stage of life.
