Find 3 therapists that can help with Disorders of sexual preference

Disorders of sexual preference, also known as paraphilias, are a group of mental health conditions characterized by intense and persistent sexual desires or fantasies that involve non-consenting partners, inappropriate objects or situations, or physical pain or humiliation. These desires or behaviors may cause distress or harm to oneself or others and interfere with one's ability to have healthy sexual relationships. It's important to note that not all paraphilias are considered disorders, and some individuals with non-harmful paraphilias may not require treatment. However, if a person's sexual desires or behaviors are causing distress or harm to themselves or others, it's essential to seek professional help from a qualified mental health professional.
