Reboot Your Sex Drive with Your Partner

Hey there, let’s talk about something that’s on many people’s minds but often whispered about in hushed tones: reigniting the flame in the bedroom. If you’ve found yourself wondering, “How do I regain my sex drive with my partner?” you’re not alone. Life has a way of throwing curveballs that can dim the spark, but fear not—there are ways to navigate this journey together.

First things first, let’s acknowledge that fluctuations in desire are completely normal in any long-term relationship. Stress, work pressures, hormonal changes, and simply the passage of time can all impact our libido. It’s important to remember that you’re not broken, and there’s nothing wrong with you or your partner.

Now, let’s dive into some practical tips and strategies for reigniting that flame with your partner on a deeper level:

  1. Communication is Key: It may sound cliché, but it’s true—communication is the cornerstone of any healthy relationship. Sit down with your partner and have an open, honest conversation about what you’re experiencing. Share your thoughts and feelings, and encourage them to do the same. Opening up about your desires, fears, and any changes you’ve noticed can help bridge the gap and create a sense of understanding and support.
  2. Quality Time Outside the Bedroom: Reconnecting doesn’t always have to start in the bedroom. Spend quality time together doing activities you both enjoy. Whether it’s going for a hike, cooking a meal together, or simply cuddling on the couch watching a movie, fostering emotional connection outside the bedroom can pave the way for intimacy inside.
  3. Try Something New: Introducing novelty can breathe new life into your intimate relationship. Whether it’s trying out new activities or experimenting with different forms of physical affection, stepping out of your comfort zone together can reignite the spark and bring a sense of excitement back into the bedroom.
  4. Prioritize Self-Care: Don’t forget to take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. Prioritize self-care activities that make you feel good, whether it’s exercising, practicing mindfulness, or indulging in a hobby you love. A healthy, happy you is essential for a healthy, happy relationship.
  5. Seek Support if Needed: If you’re still feeling stuck, don’t hesitate to seek support from a therapist or counselor specializing in sexual health or relationship issues. They can provide guidance, tools, and strategies to help you navigate this journey together and reignite the flame in your relationship.

Remember, regaining your sex drive with your partner is a journey, not a race. Be patient with yourselves and each other, and focus on nurturing your connection both inside and outside the bedroom. With open communication, mutual support, and a willingness to try new things, you can rediscover the passion and intimacy you’ve been longing for.

So, here’s to embracing the journey of rediscovery and reigniting the flame with your partner. You’ve got this!

Meet Kaylin

Aren’t you tired of being compared to the generations that came before or after you? Being judged and criticized for what you are or are not? Comparing, being compared, and never feeling like you are good enough.  I’ll admit, I’m guilty of this too. 

I grew up in a big, loud, and most of the time, chaotic Mexican family, I know what it’s like to be afraid to ask questions, to speak up,  and to try to do things differently. Because if I did, I would be faced with the question from everyone, including myself of, “who do you think you are”?

As the oldest in my family I always cared deeply for everyone (it was my job), and I forgot about taking care of myself, sound familiar?

In our families, which often carries in to our adult lives, we often struggled to feel seen or heard, and are made to feel like your emotions don’t matter, or they are just plain misunderstood. Which ultimately leaves us feeling like we’re alone in this big and sometimes terrifying world. That s**t is hard!

As a human (who happens to be a therapist) I recognize that the world I grew up in was vastly different than those around me, however, the emotions are almost universal.

Wether you are an adolescent or an adult, you are probably experiencing  significant changes and transitions in your life – and in case no one told you…Change is normal and you are not alone!

Through our work together I will support, empower, and walk with  you as you navigate this big, scary, fun, messy, and beautiful world.
