Individual Therapist in Minneapolis & Across Minnesota
I’m Looking for a Therapist in Minneapolis. Why Should I Consider Modern Intimacy?
Modern Intimacy is a group therapy practice with locations in several major cities across the country. It’s important for us to be able to serve as many people as we can around challenges and opportunities for exploring areas of mental health, sexual health and sexuality, and relationships. We have an eclectic team of mental health professionals from student to doctorate level in order to provide accessible therapy services to all.
Modern Intimacy may be a compatible option if you’re looking to explore areas of your sex life, relationship with sex, relationships with others, and mental health. As a sex therapy practice, we specialize in concerns or areas for growth around sexuality, sexual health, and sexual functioning. While sex and relationships are our specialty, we also work frequently with clients around mental health challenges and oftentimes, the way that sexual health and mental health intersect and impact each other.
This is my First Therapy Experience – What Can I Expect?
Therapy, whether individual or couples therapy encompasses a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques aimed at helping individuals/couples address psychological, emotional, sexual, and behavioral issues, ultimately leading to improved mental well-being and a more authentic life. The specific methods and goals of psychotherapy can vary depending on the therapist’s theoretical orientation and the needs of the client, but there are some common principles and processes that underlie most therapy approaches.
Starting therapy, like any new endeavor, can come with some nerves and uncertainty. There can be some hesitancy to share your intimate parts of your life with a new person. When you first reach out to us, we will start with a complimentary consultation where we can learn more about your needs and goals so we can better assess therapeutic fit from our team of therapists. Fit it often determined by areas of expertise of the therapist, preferences of the client, as well as logistical factors such as aligning schedules and financial compatibility with the therapist’s rate. We use our time during this call to really hear what you’re hoping to achieve from therapy and offer a recommendation based on what sounds most salient to your goals.
Once you are aligned with a therapist on our team, we will help you set up a first session and help get you acclimated around what to expect in terms of our telehealth platform and practice policies around scheduling. During your first session with the therapist, the provider will want to get to know you a bit more and likely will have questions about your background, history, concerns, goals, and more. Once the therapist knows more about what’s bringing you to therapy, they can develop an initial treatment plan, which essentially refers to what your work together might entail. One of the great things about therapy is that it can be flexible with your needs. If something’s not working, your therapist will help identify what’s missing and help fill those gaps so you can have the care and treatment you deserve.

I Would Prefer Virtual Sessions – Is that Something You Offer?
Yes! Currently, Modern Intimacy is a fully remote therapy practice offering services virtually, or via video. We understand that trekking to an office can be time consuming and inconvenient; telehealth can help you both save time on commuting and also provide the opportunity to experience therapy from the comfort of any private and comfortable environment you choose.
While we absolutely want you to be comfortable, we also want you to have a private and quiet space where you can freely discuss whatever is on your mind. If you can attend therapy from a quiet room or office with a door, that is often ideal, so you have all the privacy you need during your session.
Speaking of privacy, in a highly digital world, there can often be concerns about digital privacy. At Modern Intimacy, we use a HIPAA-compliant and privacy protected Telehealth platform that allows us to provide video based therapy in a way that also protects your sensitive information and session content.
At this time, we do not offer in-person services for Minneapolis clients.
What Conditions do Modern Intimacy Therapists Treat?
At Modern Intimacy, we can help with a variety of mental health, sexual health, and relationship concerns. That being said, not everything is a problem in need of solving. We also work with clients who want to expand or explore certain areas of their life, rather than “fix” something. Some of the common areas of specialty we work with can include:
- Lack of sexual desire

- Trauma & PTSD
- Pain during sex
- Sexual dysfunctions
- Relationship issues
- Sexual or gender identity
- Alternative relationship styles
- Communication issues
- Family conflict
- Self-esteem and identity challenges
- Improving sex with self or partners
