for Adults, Couples/Partners, Families, & Teens

Where:
In-Person in Midtown Sacramento

Our Therapists Specialize in:

 

Counseling for Intimacy

 

 

Couples

Therapy

 

Couples Therapy: Emotional Connection, Conflict Resolution, and Intimacy

Couples therapy can help fix communication, rebuild trust, and create emotional and physical intimacy.

Our Sacramento couples therapists and online counselors are here to support you!

 

Sex

Therapy

 

Sex Therapy for Individuals or Couples: More Pleasure, Less Stress
 

Sex therapy can help discuss and improve sensitive sexual topics with your partner.  Let’s work together to feel less awkward, frustrated, and alone when it comes to sex! 

Sex therapy can also improve help us improve our sexual confidence, have less performance anxiety, and heal from all the ways our experiences make us feel shameful about sexuality.

Our Sacramento therapists and online counselors can help you improve sexual connection, address sexual disorders, and work through painful sexual experiences. Our therapists are sex-positive and LGBTQIA+ affirmative.

 
 

 

Pre-

marital

 

Premarital Counseling: Strong Foundation, Deep Connection, Lasting Love

You want to start your marriage with a deep connection and strong foundation.

When we’re planning for marriage, we want to set ourselves up with the skills and knowledge to be sure our relationship will last.

Maybe you’re worried because as much as you love each other, there are a couple of problems that tend to pop up and feel unsolvable.  Or maybe you’re worried about making the same relationship mistakes you saw your parents make when you were growing up.

Our couples therapists love supporting premarital couples.

 

 

LGBTQ+

Love

 

LGBTQIA+ Relationship Therapy: Allies & Queer Therapists at Love Heal Grow
 

Love Heal Grow Therapy Center is an LGBTQIA+ affirmative practice–you are embraced here.

Many of the leading relationship therapy methods do not include queer experience in their research or training methods.

We think that’s wrong.  Not to mention violent–you deserve a therapist who is challenging the systemic homophobia that is ingrained in the field of therapy.

Our therapists (some of whom identify as queer and some of whom practice allyship), do additional training to combat this bias in relationship therapy to make sure we are inclusive of all love experiences.  We can’t wait to support you and your partner(s).  

 
 

Therapy for Anxiety

 
 


Anxiety, Stress
& Perfectionism

 
Anxiety Therapy: Learn to Manage Stress, Anxiety, and Overwhelm

Stuck in your head, worrying, heart-pounding, can’t focus.

Anxiety, panic, and fear can start taking over our lives.

Anxiety and stress symptoms are common and treatable.  Even when it feels like the world is (literally) falling apart around us.

If coping with anxiety and stress becomes too much, reach out to a Sacramento therapist for help.

 

Anxious in Relationships

 

Therapy for Relationship Anxiety: Understand and Improve Your Relationship Experiences
 

You might find yourself getting stuck in the same types of unfulfilling relationships.  You might be wondering, “is it them? is it me? why do relationships have to be so hard?!”

Or you might find yourself really (really) wanting couples therapy but your partner isn’t ready to start. 🙁

Or maybe you’re going through a painful break-up and wondering if you’ll ever feel better or if this hurting heart is going to last forever.

Our Sacramento therapists and online counselors can help with relationship counseling for one!

 
 

Trauma Therapy

 

 

Affair

Recovery

 

Infidelity: Healing from Betrayal Together or Alone
 

You want to rebuild trust and get to a happier place. But right now the pain is excruciating and you don’t know how to get through.

Our trauma-informed couples therapists have specialized training to support couples and individuals through infidelity

 

 

Relationship

Trauma & Abuse

 

Relational Trauma: When You've Been Hurt by People You Love(d)

Our trauma-informed therapists help survivors of childhood abusive homes, childhood neglect, domestic violence, and other physical, emotional, or sexual abuse experiences.

Relationship trauma can leave deep wounds for decades–but it doesn’t need to be this way. You deserve healing!

 

Grief

Counseling

 

Grief Counseling: Walking With You through Heart Wrenching Loss

All our relationship therapists have special training in grief counseling.

Losing a loved one can be one of the hardest experiences we go through. Our society does not do a good job of supporting others through grief.

We are here for you.

 

Sexual

Abuse & Trauma

 

Sexual Trauma & Abuse: When It's Hard to Trust, Feel Safe, or Feel Close

Sexual abuse in childhood, sexual assault, and rape, sexual harassment, and discrimination.

All these experiences can impact our ability to feel safe in our bodies and relationships.

Our trauma-informed therapists have specialized training in helping survivors heal from sexual trauma.

Our Love Heal Grow Sacramento therapists can help you develop a more secure relationship with your sexuality.
