If you're struggling with your relationships, sexuality, or life transitions, we can help. Our clients typically have concerns related to communication, anxiety/depression, relationship conflicts, career or transition issues, desire discrepancy, sexual orientation, sexual dysfunction or dissatisfaction, polyamorous/open relationships, "sex addiction" or problematic sexual behaviors, infidelity or affairs, sexless marriages, or trauma.

Respark Therapy & Associates provide exceptionally high-quality sex therapy, couples therapy, and individual counseling. All therapists are trained and supervised by Respark founder, Heather McPherson, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor (LMFT-S), Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (LPC-S) and AASECT-Certified Sex Therapist.

Together, we help you gain confidence, rebuild trust, increase playfulness, and find passion and meaning in relationships and your life. Individuals, couples, partnerships, and marriages are all welcome because Respark Therapy was founded to create a confidential and safe environment that is accepting and inclusive of all orientations, lifestyles, beliefs, and relationship practices.
