I am in the process of becoming a certified sex therapist and am excited to help people better their sexual relationships and explore their sexual identity.
Sometimes we feel lost and stuck in our lives. We have pain and trauma that feel unbearable. It can feel hopeless. There is a path forward. My name is Matt Hebert and I am passionate about helping others find the healing, peace, and self-acceptance that allows them to live a fulfilling and happy life. I want you to have a safe space to renew—or discover entirely—your life’s meaning. I work with adolescents, adults, and couples with various mental health and wellness concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, sexuality , intimacy, religious deconstruction, religious trauma, and life transitions.

As someone working towards AASECT sex therapist certification, I have extensive training and experience (5+ years) in working with those in non-traditional relationships (E/CNM, poly, etc.
Hey, there. I'm Zach (he/him). Chances are, if you're here, you've found yourself at a point in your life where you want, or perhaps need, to make a change, even if you don't quite know what that change is yet. That's alright. A good therapist is like having a trusted guide by your side to help you figure out the best path forward and to ease you through the harder spots. I'll help you figure out where you need to be, plot the best route to get you there, and support you every step of the way. If the story of your life isn't what you think it should be, let me help you rewrite it in a way that better fits.

Many psychological problems are tied to relationship struggles - sex and money are two of the biggest struggles implicated in these cases either as cause, consequence, or something in between. These struggles are emotionally moving manifestations of the human need for connection and the deep pain felt when this connection is damaged or severed. I help individuals and couples seek relationship-deepening events, become more fluent in the language of others, and understand that satisfying relationships are contingent on the ability to relate to the people you value in your life.

I'm an AASECT certified sex therapist! This is just a fancy way of saying I am passionate about working with others interested in improving their sex education, intimacy with others, and acceptance of self!.
Hi there! I'm Kristen, and my interest is people. I love getting to know about other's passions, feelings, attitudes, and ideas. And that's exactly what brought me to therapy! I get excited when others are looking to explore their own lives for ways to improve, no matter how small. I work well with clients who ruminate and tend to get caught in the vicious cycles of depression and anxiety by examining daily behaviors and thoughts. I like to be direct to maximize productivity in our time together, but will always treat you with the respect and compassion we all deserve. I'm always open to collaboration, feedback, and creativity.

This includes those suffering with body image disturbance, eating difficulties, self-harm, medical issues, chronic pain, sexuality , or trauma.
Being a human is hard. Each and every one of us, at some point in our lives, finds ourselves lost and stuck. We look at our lives and realize that this is not the life we planned for, that we are not the people we wanted to be. We look at the things we're spending our energy on, and we recognize that we're not moving any closer to to the life we want. My work focuses on helping people settle into those stuck moments, to choose a direction, and to take steps toward the life that they want.

I work with children ages 3+, adolescents, and adults. Your body, mind, and spirit naturally start to heal once it is in a state of peace. My job is to help you get there. Whatever you or your child have gone through, healing can occur once you are reconnected with your natural state. It takes some work, and that is what my work is about. I help people identify their inner strengths and empower them to use those strengths. I also really enjoy working with individuals and couples to resolve conflicts and create more rewarding connections.

I believe we have the choice of experiencing the pain of staying where we are or the potential pain from growing. My hope is to make others feel seen and be a guidance of support through the evolving journey of growth. I work in topics of grief/loss, anxiety, radical acceptance, and self-empowerment. Building coping skills to navigate these changes impacts our understanding of their purpose. I incorporate creative interventions, including aspects of nature towards healing to contribute to a holistic approach. Our approach to therapy will be collaborative and nonjudgemental, while offering grace and compassion through the adversity.

Hi. Therapy isn't easy work but it's achievable if you'd like to develop healthier patterns for living. If you are struggling with family, co-workers, your spouse, we may be able to enhance your skills so you can wear your smile again. Are you saddened too much of the time? Angered by those you love? Retaliating unacceptably? Feeling undervalued while believing you do the best you can? Feeling lost and vulnerable in a hectic world? We may be able to identify behaviors, feelings which identify your "core," bringing them to the surface in a way which is comfortable.

Sex Therapy

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
