About Individual Therapy Services
Welcome! Respark is a confidential, all-inclusive, group psychotherapy practice serving clients online and from offices in Denver, Colorado and Austin, Texas
We are a team of highly-specialized therapists with a combined 40+ years experience serving our clients’ individual and relationship needs. We provide the most up to date and effective therapy because our clinicians are highly trained in relationship issues as well as sexuality issues. At Respark Therapy, we commit to a judgment-free, compassionate and authentic relationship with you through every twist and turn of your journey.
Romantic relationships bring joy, comfort, and love into our lives. They can also challenge us in ways we never anticipated. When you first got together with your partner, it was hard to imagine anything disrupting your connection. But things change, conflict is unavoidable, and now, you’re struggling to rekindle that sense of intimacy once again.
Every couple faces their own challenges in their partnership. The key to successfully overcoming these difficult times is ensuring that each person puts forth the effort to make it work. You want to try, but you simply don’t know how to. This is when couples therapy is an invaluable tool for you and your partner.
Clients tell us we're friendly, down to earth and approach therapy in a collaborative manner. We offer a holistic, gentle yet direct, and tailored approach that includes well-researched theories with a relational foundation. Respark utilizes proven strategies and techniques including Post Modern Theories like Narrative, Solution-Focused, Sex Positive Coaching, Gottman Method, Mindfulness and other interventions tailored to your unique needs. Together, we will learn new techniques, assign at-home exercises, reading assignments, conduct in-session guided exercises and other activities that make therapy fun and productive. We'll work together to form an approach that will be tailored to your goals. Leading researchers, including John Gottman, David Schnarch, Esther Perel, Brené Brown, David Ley, Chris Donaghue, and Marty Klein influence our therapeutic work with couples and individuals. Together we can resolve conflicts and light the fire by learning practical tools that will stick.
There is no shame in getting help. At Respark, we are dedicated to helping you navigate through depression, anxiety, and other life stressors. Respark your love for life again. You are not alone!

"I collaborate professionally with Heather on a regular basis and believe she is a talented, effective, and down-to-earth sex therapist. She is my go-to referral for clients exploring sexuality issues such as a sexless marriage, issues of sexual identity, kink, open and poly relationships. I feel so lucky to have her as part of our Austin therapist community!”
