❌ Not Accepting New Clients
My name is Keely C. Helmick and I am the owner of Connective Therapy Collective in Portland, Oregon. I use they/them pronouns and I am a White, able-bodied, queer, gender fluid, non-binary femme.
These identities inform the passion and experience I bring to my professional practice as a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and certified sex therapist. In my work I focus on supporting individuals or relationships/family structures processing topics of gender, sexuality, non-monogamy, and polyamory. People want to talk about sex and either don’t have the language to have the discussion, or are hindered by misinformation, trauma, embarrassment or lack of self-awareness and understanding. My practice lens is intersectional, anti-oppression and de-colonization oriented. I have been working with folks for over 12-years to address a myriad of personal, sexual concerns in a sex-positive, non-judgmental way. I specialize in work with the LGBTQIA2S+, gender diverse people, as well as the kinky community. My goal is to create a space where individuals, groups, and communities can learn and grow, overcome systemic barriers to accurate sexual health information, trauma healing, and shame-free pleasure-based support.
At Connective Therapy Collective I supervise Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. I received my graduate degree from Lewis & Clark College and maintain certification through the state of Oregon as well as nationally with The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).
