Sex, Pleasure, Romance, and Connection (SPRC) Consult Program

Our Sex, Pleasure, Romance, and Connection (SPRC) Consult Program is dedicated to providing evidence-based treatment for individuals and couples dealing with concerns related to relationships, intimacy, and sexuality. Unlike generic therapy, our program is tailored to address the unique goals, challenges, and patterns specific to each couple's circumstances. We understand the significance of addressing sexuality and sexual health, which is often overlooked in traditional treatments. As part of our SPRC program, we are committed to providing holistic and integrative care, recognizing the intricate dynamics of trauma and its impact on intimate aspects of life. Our program aims to empower clinicians to skillfully and compassionately navigate the complex intersections of trauma and sexual wellness.

What to Expect

We begin with a multi-session in-depth assessment process to thoroughly examine concerns and obstacles related to relationship, intimacy, and sexual satisfaction. Based on the assessment data and therapy goals, we formulate personalized treatment plans to ensure the most comprehensive care specific to the client and/or relationship. Similar to our other clinical programs, we collect outcome data for each couple and/or individual to ensure that treatment goals are being met.

What We Treat

Furthermore, our sex therapy-informed clinicians have received formal, specialized training in the latest evidence-based treatments for couples, such as The Gottman Method, Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Conjoint Therapy for PTSD.

Our clinicians are trained to address the following concerns:

    • Relationship difficulties
    • Relationship recovery after an affair/betrayal
    • Relationship transitions (e.g., marriage, divorce, separation)
    • Enhancing intimacy and couples satisfaction
    • Supporting a loved one through a difficult period
    • Improved communication and conflict resolution skills
    • Increased sexual wellness and satisfaction
