When most people think of intimacy, romantic and sexual relationships usually come to mind. While sex can build intimacy with a partner, there’s more to it than just physical attraction. Real intimacy is the closeness that develops between two or more people and isn’t restricted to romantic relationships — it’s about sharing a physical or emotional connection with someone. It’s a feeling of comfort and familiarity characterized by the ability to be open, honest and vulnerable with others, usually close friends, family members or romantic partners.
At Valiant Living, we understand that relationships are a core part of our existence. As social beings, humans have a deep-seated need for love and intimacy, but sometimes our relationships with others can go off track and become dysfunctional. When this happens, the emotional toll can impact future relationships and lead to intimacy disorders, making it difficult to form meaningful connections with others. Since intimacy is a key component for a happy, fulfilling life, addressing the underlying issues that interfere with forming healthy emotional attachments can help build the meaningful connections that everyone deserves.
If you or someone you care about is struggling with an intimacy disorder, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Valiant Living’s Restorations Therapy Center can help repair dysfunctional or maladaptive relationships so clients and their loved ones can begin forming healthy, authentic emotional bonds built on real intimacy. We offer therapy for addictions, sexual issues, and affair recovery. Our services include individual counseling, group counseling, couples therapy, marriage intensives, weekend intensives, and more, to provide customized treatment programs for every individual.
