Sexual Health and Gender Program

The Sexual Health and Gender Program at Natalis offers clinical services that attend to a wide variety of sexual health and gender concerns. Our programming emphasizes the use of empirically validated treatment models by providers who have specific training and competencies in these areas. Our goal in the Sexual Health and Gender Program is to help clients address these concerns in ways that feel realistic, achievable, and sustainable over time.

Sexual Health Group Therapy Services:

Impulsive/Compulsive Sexual Behavior Dual Diagnosis Treatment Program
This treatment program has been developed to assist individuals in gaining control over their patterns of using substances and engaging in compulsive sexual behaviors, which are often fused together. It is designed to help individuals come to their own understanding and define the substance use and sexual behaviors they find problematic in their lives and to eliminate the impulsive/compulsive aspects of these behaviors.
This program involves weekly, 2-hour, group therapy sessions, as well as weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly individual therapy sessions (case/need dependent). Beyond psychologists and therapists trained in the areas of sexual impulsivity/compulsivity, our treatment team also includes psychiatrists who can evaluate individuals for psychotropic medications if necessary. Our programming can be used in conjunction with 12 step programming and recovery programming such as outpatient substance use treatment.

Sexual Health Assessment Services:

Psychosexual Evaluations
This is an evaluation that is either court-ordered or requested by an attorney as a part of a youth or adult’s legal proceedings regarding a sexual offense charge. It is an intensive process including an interview of the charged individual, collateral interviews, review of all legal records, review of psychosocial history, review of any treatment history, and psychological testing.

Sexual Health Evaluations
These evaluations are provided for individuals who are wishing to gain a better understanding of their engagement in problematic or distressing sexual behaviors. Please note that these assessments are not the same as Psychosexual Evaluations, as they are not legally mandated and tend to be less intensive.

Gender Therapy Services:

We provide individual, family, and group therapy services for people across the gender spectrum. We provide services for adults, adolescents, and children and use the Gender Affirmative Lifespan Approach (GALA) developed by Dr. Dianne Berg and Dr. Katherine Spencer at the National Center for Gender Spectrum Health/Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota.

Gender Group Therapy Services:

Adult Transfeminine Process Group
This is an adult, process-group focused on thoughtful dialogue & critical thinking about transfeminine experiences. This group meets every other Monday from 6:30 to 7:45pm at the University Avenue location.

“Believing you are unworthy of love and belonging — that who you are authentically is a sin or is wrong — is deadly. Who you are is beautiful and amazing.”
