This week Joe meets Dr. Lee Phillips. Dr. Phillips is in private practice in Washington, DC where he treats clients with chronic illness and sexual dysfunction. Author of the book, ‘Sex & Love When You Are Sick?, Lee, an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, also lectures on topics including sexuality, anxiety and stress management, caregiving stress, depression in the elderly, mindfulness and cognitive strategies for chronic pain. Together Joe and Lee discuss sex therapy & chronic illness.
Dr Phillips wants to crush the myth that people with chronic illness and other disabilities are not sexual. Plus, he believes that couples can overcome shame, and sexual limitations caused by illness, to reclaim a sex life that works for them!
