Hear from clinicians who have taken our courses

Wonderful job introducing the basics of sex therapy!

Especially for clinicians who are not used to doing this kind of work with clients. Definitely helped normalize talking about it and integrating it in a way that is unique to each client and therapst!

Ashley Galinger, MA, LPC

I felt challenged in a healthy and non-judgmental way!

The training enabled me to think about how I can, and even should, integrate conversations about sex into treatment. I will even say that this training has helped open up conversations about sex with my partner.

Blake Huelsman, MA, LPCC

I will be referring other clinicians to this course!
