    Therapy for Sexual Trauma: A Space to Heal

    The ability to form close, sexual relationships through physical intimacy varies from person to person. A history of sexual abuse, broken boundaries, emotional disconnection, or traumatic experiences can make sexual intimacy confusing and difficult. As a consequence, these complications may affect an individual’s ability to establish and maintain safe, healthy, and intimate relationships.

    If you have experienced sexual trauma, healing is possible. I assist clients through sexual abuse therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (when indicated). This type of therapy can help you regain a positive sexual self-concept and voice. I can help you reclaim your sexuality, feel healthy, and experience pleasure in a way that is most comfortable for you.

    My Approach to Couples Sex Therapy

    At my Denver-based couples sex therapy practice, I take a holistic and personalized approach to addressing intimacy issues. By utilizing an attachment lens, emotional connection, evidence-based techniques and interventions I strive to foster a warm, non-judgmental and empathetic environment. I can help you and your partner navigate your unique relationship and sexual challenges.
