Sex Therapy in Sacramento
Therapists for Couples & Individuals
We help our clients overcome their sexual problems and create fulfilling sex lives!
You are tired of feeling frustrated and disappointed when it comes to your sex life.
Why does it all seem so awkward and stressful, when it seems like everyone else must have it figured out?
Why isn’t it as spontaneous and fun as it seems in the movies? Gosh, it’s just so embarrassing and you’re not sure how to get it to a better place.
Whether you are experiencing a new sexual problem or if it’s something that been stressing you out for decades, you are not alone.
At Love Heal Grow, your therapist will listen to you with compassion, provide education and techniques that can help get to the heart of your sexual problems, and help you (and your partner) have better intimacy.
Sex therapy includes talking in session and sometimes home exercises and suggestions which are backed by science to help you improve sexual problems.
The thought of reaching out to a sex therapist to talk about your sex life may make you feel nervous or embarrassed.
Most, if not all, people experience issues with sex at some point in their lives and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about!
Sex therapy can help.

You Can Attend Sex Therapy Alone or With Your Partner
Individual Sex Therapy
We can help you figure out why you are having the sexual problems you are experiencing and learn new skills to help you.
You might choose individual therapy if you aren’t ready to discuss your concerns with your partner, if they aren’t ready for therapy, or if you are single.
Individual therapy is also effective for survivors of sexual abuse and trauma.
With Your Partner
We will support you and your partner as you talk through your sexual problems, identify different blocks contributing to your challenges, and ultimately get a better place where you both feel joyful and fulfilled sexually.
We are accepting and collaborative–we don’t take sides or look to blame either of you for what you are experiencing.
Hi! I’m Megan, therapist and founder of Love Heal Grow Counseling.
We have worked with hundreds of couples and individuals in our community to improve their relationships. Sex is such an integral part of relationships and we think it’s important that we’re able to support our clients in their sexual well-being.
Our clients tell us they feel comfortable talking with us about topics that aren’t always easy to talk about — like sex. We’re glad to hear this because sex is a normal and important part of life. Sexual issues are very common and you don’t need to worry about surprising us with whatever is troubling you–we’ve heard everything.
We look forward to hearing from you if you’d like to explore sex therapy.

Nervousness & Anxiety

Bad Stuff in the Past
It’s rare that any of us get through life without some negative experiences or messages about sex. Sex therapy can help you work through:
- Sexual abuse or trauma
- Embarrassing experiences with partners that get stuck in your mind
- An upbringing that gave you the message that sex was bad or shameful
- Judgmental messages that you received about your body, performance or sexuality
Loss of Desire/Passion
It’s normal to go through sexual ebbs and flows, but did you know that we’re having less sex as a society? Stress, life responsibilities, boredom with sex life and so many other factors can lead to this. Sex therapy can help couples reignite the passion and prioritize their sex life.
