Sex is an important part of relationships – maybe the most important, depending on who you ask. It’s also the most common point of contention in relationship therapy. While it’s totally normal for libido to ebb and flow as we age and cope with a number of stress variables, it’s also totally normal to feel frustrated with…

Just a Hookup with Dr. Lisa Wade

|

No hookups! If you have any experience at all, online dating, you’ve come across this phrase. Maybe you’re  someone who gets regularly propositioned for no-strings-attached (NSA) sex and you need to weed those people out.

Butt Stuff

|

Let’s talk about [anal] sex! See what I did there? I made it seem like I was embarrassed to say “anal” because I actually am. It’s one thing to talk about sex ALL THE DAMN TIME, but as soon as butts come into the equation, people get squeamish. So, let’s get it out of the…

Overcome Infidelity – Or Don’t

Call Me Daddy – Ageplay with Dr. Rhoda Lipscomb

|

What is Ageplay Ageplay (sometimes “Age Play” or “Age-play”) generally refers to sexual role play where someone pretends they’re a different age, but it’s important to note, it’s not always sexual. “Who’s your daddy” is probably the most common introduction to age play. Even if it’s not your go-to for sexy talk, I’m going to…

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.
