Sex Therapy for Emotional and Sexual Intimacy
Reignite Your Connection
When you fall in love, sex is so easy and exciting that it’s hard to imagine anything will change. But many seek out couples counseling because, over time, they feel like roommates who barely interact… much less have sex with each other.
Our sex therapists understand that sexual intimacy and emotional intimacy are deeply intertwined. We’ll help you rejuvenate your emotional bond — and your sex life.
Become Partners in Pleasure
Talking about emotional intimacy and sexuality can feel painfully vulnerable: so many couples don’t… and drift apart as a result.
Our experienced relationship counselors help you feel comfortable talking about everything: your hopes and fears, sexual desire differences, histories, and futures.
These courageous conversations help you achieve compassionate understanding and genuine pleasure in your relationship — both in and out of the bedroom.
How is Sex Therapy Different at Growing Self?
Sex therapists at Growing Self are — first and foremost — relationship experts: marriage and family therapists with extensive, specialized training and expertise in helping couples and individuals cultivate healthy, happy, emotionally intimate relationships.
Positive sexuality is an important part of a healthy relationship, and sex therapy is often part of the effective marriage counseling, couples therapy, and relationship coaching we do here.
Our relationship experts provide therapy in Denver and sex therapy online. We use evidence-based approaches to couples counseling and sex therapy — including the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy — to help you build satisfying emotional, physical, and sexual intimacy in your relationship.
Sex Therapy at Growing Self Helps You…
Deepen Your Emotional Bond
Here’s a secret: Many “sexual issues” aren’t really about sex. They’re about emotional disconnection, lingering resentments, or other patterns that get in the way of sexual desire.
A sex therapist helps you have productive conversations that shine a light on how other parts of your relationship impact your sex life.
By strengthening your emotional bond, you keep the romance alive.
Revitalize Your Sex Life
Hello, parenthood! Next stop, perimenopause.
As couples enter new phases of life together, they must intentionally nurture their relationship over and over again.
Experienced marriage and family therapists understand how dynamics shift through every stage of life and love.
We help you keep stress from taking your sex life in marriage with evidence-based approaches that honor both your needs, rights, and feelings — reviving the spark in your sexual connection.
Cultivate Healthy, Happy Sexuality
Aside from the cringey “sex-ed” class in school, no one teaches us how to develop a healthy sense of sexuality, or maintain a healthy sexual relationship with a long-term partner. Worse, many people have had damaging sexual experiences in the past that impact their present.
Our sexual health correlates to our physical health, emotional health, and the health of our relationships. Sex therapy helps you unpack these complex relationships and cultivate health and healing in your sex life — and your mental and emotional wellness, too.
Confidential & Empowering
We’re here for you. Confidential sex therapy with an expert offers hope and creates real change, helping you and your partner recapture closeness and connection again.
We offer sex therapy and couples counseling in Denver, CO. We also offer therapy online through HIPAA-compliant video.
Our expert sex therapists help take the scary out of sex therapy, empowering you to have those difficult conversations and helping you move closer together toward greater intimacy and fulfillment.
We offer evening and weekend hours so that you can meet with a relationship expert at your convenience.

See What Our Clients are Saying
“She’s very nice. She’s smart and she leads the sessions well. We really like Tomauro.”
“Dori helped us so much. Over multiple discussions, she helped us gain insights into what the other person was truly thinking and feeling, and what we were afraid to admit, too. She also gave us a collection of tools to try when things get tough. The combination of all these things has helped us work through and past much of the tension we couldn’t get over before.”
“Lisa seemed to understand our unique situation and highly capable of helping us.”
“Stephanie has helped us greatly with our communication and connection. We have had a very positive experience, and I am grateful for the wonderful help we’ve received.”

He has provided us both with a safe place where we feel encouraged to be vulnerable with one another. We absolutely love working with him, and plan to keep doing so!”
“The most helpful part was Hunter’s understanding nature and ability to condense down what we said. He was very affirming in nature and was also able to offer perspective. I really appreciate that we was the one who led the discussion about having achieved our goals. As for different, I don’t think there is anything at this time.”

“She’s [Georgi] empathetic, caring and we both feel supported by her.”
“We’re doing great! Indeed we had some fights, but always with a happy ending and no hard feelings afterwards. Thanks a lot for your help, it was crucial for our development as a couple.”

“He listens well. Hunter helped to teach us how to listen to each other, and how to be vulnerable, honest, and to open up about everything.”
“Even though we just started, Georgiana is already helping us come together stronger as a couple. I appreciate her candor, frankness and suggestions.”
“I like the way that she talks with us and she makes me feel really comfortable after previous therapy experiences going poorly. And I think that she gives us good homework and tools that we can use.”
“Georgi has been creative in her approach and committed to helping us grow”
“Elizabeth always is prepared. She is thoughtful and asks thought-provoking questions. We are enjoying our sessions with her.”
“We are getting the tools that we need to better communicate and be more considerate of one another’s moods and needs. Natalie has offered straightforward information and concrete steps. Also, the zoom meetings are far more effective than I anticipated. The technology is easy to use and it creates the right environment for this sort of thing.”
“I feel Ben is a good fit for us. We both felt comfortable talking with him.”
“Not only was Renelle a great personality fit for us, her intelligence and experience in the areas we need really came through along with her approach as a teacher as much as a therapist – all the things we are looking for.”
“Georgi was wonderful and I really appreciated her process minded approach. She was very good at deconstructing complex situations or emotions in a methodical way that made obstacles seem easier to overcome. She also made sure that myself and my partner felt validated throughout the process. I like that Georgi let us come forward with anything that happened in the week but she also always had a plan to direct the conversation in case we did not have anything to talk about.”
“I was comfortable with Ben and how he explained everything we could expect the first visit. I think he was fair to both of us and I would be interested in his insight.”
“Georgi has been great. We’ve only had a few foundational sessions so far, but the time my partner and I spend both in and out of the office has been tremendously helpful.”
“Dori is understanding and calm, and helps us understand our feelings, communicate them, celebrate all positive steps, stay positive, and feel hopeful and loving toward each other.”
“She [Dr. Georgiana] is taking us through historical issues that need to be addressed before we can move forward. She tells it straight, “If things continue like this you can expect xyz…” She encourages and makes a case for decisions to be made, to take a stand and follow through.”
“Rachel does an amazing job facilitating constructive conversations, identifying root causes, and formulating a plan for tackling issues. My wife and I have tremendously benefited from our sessions with Rachel. Our relationship is stronger and there is more understanding between us.”
“Linda makes us feel safe. She makes it so that we know that we are going to get through this together and come out stronger.”
“The best thing that Hunter did was hold us accountable and make sure that we were always clear and understood. If at any time we didn’t feel like we were achieving anything he was there to help guide us to more vulnerable communication.”
“Hunter taught us many useful techniques to help us communicate better, recognize and resolve conflicts. We also really like the part where he asked us to re-do our conversations. Those practices help us catch ourselves even before conflicts arise.”
“I just wanted to thank you [Roseann] for the great session today. Your read on things has been remarkably accurate and we’re really happy we found you. I know we’re just beginning, but I’m incredibly encouraged by the real progress we’re already making and we’re very much looking forward to seeing you next week.”
