About Us

Welcome to The Intimacy Institute for Sex and Relationship Therapy in Boulder, Colorado. We have a team of four licensed sex and relationship therapists, offering relationship counseling and clinical sex therapy in the Boulder area for over 10 years.
At the Intimacy Institute, we are passionate about sexual health. It is our belief that sexual health is our birthright. As such, we help couples and individuals enhance and optimize sexual function, pleasure, and knowledge of human sexuality, both individually and in relationship.
We have a seasoned team of sex therapists who are clinically trained to provide the best in relationship counseling and sex therapy. Common concerns we address can include erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, anorgasmia, painful intercourse, sexual desire discrepancy, out-of-control sexual behavior, and finding a new normal after chronic illness.
In addition to exploring sexual health, we offer the best in couples therapy, utilizing a foundation in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Because sexual experiences often take place in the context of relationships, we feel it is essential to help clients emotionally enrich their relationships with themselves and their loved ones.

Dr. Jenni is an incredibly effective therapist for my needs. She is able to help me think through and improve my relationships in romantic, social, and professional domains. She is also sensitive to alternative sexualities, and complicated relationships styles, making her a particularly effective therapist for me, but for anyone else too. Her familiarity with romance, sex, and relationships in all facets make her a wise, kind, and courageous ally for whatever your journey might be.

I came to see Nina to work through a sexual issue I was experiencing in a new relationship. I felt totally comfortable discussing this issue with her. She is a great listener and offered helpful advice to see this issue from a different light. She asked the right questions to dig into what was causing this problem. I believe that her expertise helped to changed my mindset and get me to a better place. I would recommend Nina to anyone seeking sex therapy and/or relationship counseling.

I went to Daniel to help me deal with sexual issues that were unraveling my marriage. After working with him, I gained a clearer understanding of myself, which in turn led to a greater understanding of the relationship I have with my wife. The pessimism I harbored a year ago has given way to a new, optimistic chapter in our marriage. Furthermore, my increased self-confidence and self-awareness has provided opportunity in other aspects of my life, including my career. My sessions with Daniel have been such a worthwhile investment.
