The Opioid Epidemic with Kevin Petersen

More people are dying of opioid abuse and accidental overdose than ever before. It’s an epidemic that doesn’t discriminate. Opioid addiction has nothing to do with race or class, age or gender. Prescription drug abuse is widespread and – along with opioid abuse – it’s killing more Americans than auto accidents. Join us for a…

No Means No – With Matt LeBauer

|

From politicians to actors to hollywood executives, people are getting called-out for sexual misconduct by the dozens. While it’s not totally surprising to learn that people in power abuse that power – it’s not even surprising to regularly hear stories of men behaving badly, even assaulting women, sexually.

Lisa Thomas

As an expert Clinical Sex Therapist, I have the ability to address relationship and marriage problems without bias and provide innovative solutions to couples with difficult relationship and intimacy issues. I specialize in working with couples on the brink of divorce or separation and crafting unique solutions to their emotional and physical relationship.

Come see me if you're in the Denver Metro Area, or book a video call from anywhere in the world.

Ben Robbins

I'm not a licensed therapist. I'm a licensed architect. What good is that? Not much, if you need a licensed therapist. It's actually worth a lot, though, if you need a life coach uniquely versed in multifaceted problem-solving and personal experience.

I've personally worked through divorce, single-parenting, online relationships, non-monogamy, and online dating.

I've been told I'm a great listener, and I happen to love hearing from people like you, whether it's to get help with a problem, or even if you just need a sympathetic ear. Book an phone or video call, now.
