Therapy for Individuals and Couples

You may have arrived here because you’re struggling and you need things to change. You may feel lost, alone, or just plain tired of trying the same things that no longer serve you. Or you’re ready to move past the issues that come up over and over again – the ones that get in your way, hold you back, or keep you from fully living, loving, and connecting.

At Inner Atlas, we believe you have everything inside of you to heal and feel whole. The missing element is the supportive environment to nurture and draw out what's already there.

That's what we're here for. We offer in-person and virtual psychotherapy to individuals and couples from our offices in Denver, Colorado. Explore our therapy services and learn more about our approach and specializations.

Individual Therapy

At Inner Atlas, many of our clients are motivated, insightful high-achievers. From the outside, they appear accomplished and successful, while inside, they lack a sense of self-worth. They look like they have it all together, but deep down, they’re sure something’s wrong with them. As perfectionists and people-pleasers, they’re wrestling with what they feel they’re supposed to do and what’s expected, and what they can do or even want to do. They’re adept at meeting the needs of others, but struggle with making space for their own. They feel unfulfilled and sense there’s more to life than this. And like you, they're ready to do what it takes to create change.
what to expect
To understand where you are now and where you'd like to go, the therapy process starts with where you've been. This creates awareness about what's getting in the way of the life you want to live.

What's happening with you today likely has roots that date back to an earlier time or event. If you experienced complex trauma, chronic stress, or attachment wounds, those experiences may emerge in a number of ways: as disordered eating, addiction, sexual problems, intimacy barriers, relationship dysfunction, spiritual depletion, dissociation, or a host of other ways. When we bring to light the complexity of your experience, we can then set an intentional plan for healing.

Our integrative approach to therapy helps you understand how your past experiences influence your present cycles and symptoms, so you can break free and live in alignment with your purpose, pleasure, and power.
how it works
Whether in person or in virtual sessions, we provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can feel comfortable to engage in deep exploration and vulnerability. Our work together may take place in weekly sessions or in a therapy intensive. Over time, we'll revisit and adjust the frequency or focus of sessions, as new or different needs arise or abate. We may also connect you with other healers and resources, so you're able to address healing comprehensively and holistically – in body, mind, and spirit.

Couples and Relationship Therapy

When your relationship isn’t going well, it can overshadow everything else in your life. The kitchen is a mess again, despite your constant appeals. Your partner spends more time online these days than with you. You just made a big decision without letting your S.O. know about it. That tone of voice they use makes you feel stupid.  The thing that happened between you is still hanging in the air.

Unresolved issues within your relationship can lead to a cycle of conflict and disconnection. But how we act and interact within our relationships isn’t just about right now – it has deep roots. Your earliest caregivers may not have modeled open communication, healthy emotional connection, or appropriate boundaries, and these can become areas of friction in your relationship.

Understanding your patterns can help you change them. Couples and relationship therapy helps you put together the pieces of yourself to create a satisfying, fulfilling partnership.

what to expect
We repeat what we don't repair. That's true for how we show up as individuals and as partners.Couples and relationship therapy helps you navigate past and present issues, and learn new practices to build on the foundation you know is still there with your partner. It can also show you how to navigate modern dating with a new perspective. Through therapy, you'll learn tools to strengthen communication, rebuild trust, and create greater intimacy and emotional connection in your relationships. Whether you’re dating, married, or somewhere in between, we’re here to help you create and maintain satisfying connections that last.

Sex Therapy

Most of us haven’t received the best messages about sex from an early age. You may have been influenced by an abysmal sex education system, sex-negative societal norms, embarrassing or shameful early sexual experiences, or parents or caretakers who didn't talk openly about healthy sexuality.

These formative learning experiences set the tone for our sexual lives and can cause sexual problems later. We’re here to help you let go of the unhelpful stories, cultural programming, and shame, so that you can lead an embodied, empowered sex life, no matter what relationship constellation or stage of life you find yourself in.
Commonly Addressed Issues
  • Mismatched Desire
  • Low Sex Drive
  • Arousal Difficulty
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Erectile Issues
  • Lack of Orgasm
  • Painful Sex
  • Sexual Shame
  • Sex and Chronic Illness
  • Aging and Sex
  • Sex After Trauma
  • Out of Control Sexual Behavior
  • Kinks and BDSM
  • Sexual Communication
what to expect
Don’t let the name intimidate you. Sex therapy is a lot like individual or couples therapy. It’s talk therapy that focuses on addressing specific concerns related to sexual health, wellbeing, intimacy, and pleasure. Individuals and couples come to sex therapy to discover fulfillment and confidence in their sexual lives.

Sexual problems can occur for a number of reasons, including past trauma, stress, relational issues, biology, and body image. That's why we'll focus on the mind-body-spirit connection to find an integrative solution. Sex therapy can play an important role in the elimination of shame and the rediscovery of pleasure and excitement. It promotes clarity, confidence, and competence in your relationship with your sexual self.

We use a sex-positive approach in therapy, and we're LGBTQIA-friendly and kink-knowledgeable.
how it works
Couples and sex therapy may take place in weekly sessions or as therapy intensives, and it begins with our 3-step assessment process:

1. We start with an initial joint session to talk about what brought you to therapy.

2. Our joint session is followed by two individual sessions to better understand each partner. These individual sessions cover subjects such as family, sexual history, and relationship history, and include an in-depth relationship assessment that highlights areas of strength and growth.

3. Following the individual sessions, we come back together to outline a path forward.

We see our best results and biggest breakthroughs when individuals are willing to look within at their contributions to the relational dynamic, and follow through between sessions with completing any recommended exercises, videos, or reading materials.Over time, we'll revisit and adjust the frequency or focus of sessions, as new or different needs arise or abate. Virtual joint sessions can be conducted with both individuals attending from the same or separate spaces.

Sex therapy never involves nudity or sexual contact between therapist and clients, or between clients.
