Located 20 miles northwest of LA in Encino, California, Connection Therapy is the private practice of Dr. Stephanie Hunter Jones, a clinical sexologist and psychologist who provides flexible outpatient counseling to clients struggling with mental health issues. Though Jones is trained in a variety of approaches, her emphasis is primarily on sexual dysfunction, trauma surrounding sexuality and relationship counseling.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning a program, clients meet for an initial intake and assessment with Jones to help her determine their specific needs. As a non-medical facility, detox and stabilization services are not available. Treatment specifics can vary though each generally focuses on individual therapy focused on Jones’ own therapy approach called Connection Therapy, which has a pending trademark. These sessions include topics of personal empowerment, energy healing, hypnosis and communication skills. In general, dual diagnosis support and 12-step participation to not apply to these programs—the focus is squarely on clients’ relationships and sex lives. As mentioned, the staff is limited to Jones herself and some support staff.
In addition to the above, therapy plans specific to the needs of LGBTQ clients as well as those in the kink community. Couples therapy plans are also available as necessary. All treatment plans are highly flexible and customizable, with follow-up and aftercare counseling also offered as necessary.
Overall, Connection Therapy is a niche treatment option for clients struggling with their relationships, their sex lives or any outstanding sexual traumas. Treatment is not traditional or evidence-based; instead, Jones helps clients with a methodology she developed on her own encompassing a mind, body and spirit approach. While the facility may not be a perfect fit for everyone, those looking to revitalize their sex lives may want to consider Connection Therapy.
