The Center for Connection & Desire LLC is currently growing in Delaware from a solo practice to a group practice.
From Dr. Catherine Dukes:
I have been talking about and teaching sexual health for over 20 years, most of that time in Delaware. My dedication to understanding each patient’s sexual issue has enabled me to help hundreds of people/couples live a more sexually fulfilled life. Through telehealth sex therapy for Delaware, I guide my patients towards an enhanced sexual health and stronger relationships. Whether facing sexual dysfunction or intimacy concerns, I listen intently to individual struggles and customize a treatment plan that moves them forward to where they want to be. As a highly credentialed, empathetic psychotherapist, I am with my patients for every step of their journey. Sex therapy is talk therapy and does not involve physical contact. I use skills like mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and fun homework including videos and exercises so my patients can learn more about their sexual health and the improvements they can make to enhance their sex life. I am my patients’ link to a new beginning.
Proudly Serving our Delaware Community
The Mission of The Center for Connection & Desire is to increase sexual self-compassion and sex positivity, radically reduce and challenge sexual shame, build self-empowerment, expand sex-positivity and sexual self agency, facilitate close connected intimate relationships, promote pleasure as self-care, expand bodily comfort, love, & compassion, and increase comprehensive knowledge of the diversity of healthy sexuality and expression.
We do this through caring and competent sex therapy, couples therapy, psychotherapy, adult sex education, and professional consulting, development, & training services in Delaware. Our purpose and values are to support individuals in being comfortable, confident, joyful and connected in their bodies, their relationships, their sexuality, and their sexual expression.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. From a strengths-based perspective and utilizing strategies and tools from ACT (acceptance & commitment therapy) CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) & mindfulness I help my clients manage and minimize the negative impacts of anxiety and depression on their lives.
