Sex Therapy

Lots of people have this question.

AASECT certified sex therapists are trained in helping people with MANY aspects of their sex and intimate lives including:

  • erectile dysfunction
  • painful intercourse
  • low libido
  • no desire/high desire
  • mismatched desire (he wants more than she wants)
  • navigating open or polyamorous relationships
  • exploring and discovering a more mutually pleasurable or satisfying intimate relationship
  • healing from "sex addiction"
  • processing the discovery of 'out of control sexual behavior' in a relationship
  • and much more.

Sex Therapy in Denver

Some people have a good relationship and are bored in their sex life and want a third party with training in sexuality, communication, intimacy, and relationships to talk with to know if they are 'normal'. If you aren't sure, give us a call 720.457.3342 and one of our sex therapists can hop on the phone and answer the questions that you have. Or send an email to

It's pretty common that couples come in because their sex lives have become stale after many years or decades if the same routine.

Sex Therapy

The great thing about working with a therapist that is BOTH a licensed marriage and family therapist AND a certified sex therapist is that we can work from all angles -- looking at your communication, healing past hurts/barriers to hot sex, erotic languaging, how you grow anticipation for *wanting* sex, and also the mechanics. You might be surprised to hear that many couples do not know how to talk about sex -- how to talk about what they want, what they don't want, what they fantasize about, and what they may be interested in exploring. Learning to talk about these things with a trained professional in the room can be so very helpful for a couple to jumpstart their desire and open a new chapter in their committed relationship!

Contact Our Office

Getting bored with your sex life is totally normal! Often there are just a few fine-tuning things that we can do help you move into a new space that is more desirable for you both. Call us today and we will get you in for your first appointment, 720.457.3342.

Clinicians who are trained in sex therapy help people with a wide variety of issues related to sex, sexuality, intimacy, and connection. Many of our clients come to us because they do not have the sex life that they want or maybe they have heard about "open marriages" and are interested in exploring that with someone who is knowledgeable. 

What To Expect During a Session

During sessions, your sex therapist will ask you lots of questions, be curious about you (don't worry! It is hard to shock a sex therapist!) and what is happening in your life. Often, we will ask some very detailed help us understand the nature of the issue or problem that you are bringing in. Sex therapists do not touch their clients. We are still "talk therapists" and sometimes can work like a "sex educator" providing information, tips, and tools but we aren't like a massage therapist or other healer that is licensed to touch their clients.

If you are not sure if your concern would warrant working with a sex therapist, call us today and our Client Ambassador will help you! Call 720.457.3342. We are easy to talk to and used to talking about all kinds of things. ;-)
