Enroll Now and Start Learning Today! 

Are you seeking AASECT certification as a sex therapist or sexuality counselor?  Are you looking to develop a niche in sex therapy, or wanting to add a new skill to your couples therapy training?  Maybe you’re considering certification to give you credibility with other therapists and healthcare providers.  Maybe, like many caring professionals, you know that this is an area where people need help but have difficulty finding it.

Whether you are a Southern California local or live far away, Dr. Stephanie Buehler, Director of The Buehler Institute, can help you attain your career goals.  Dr. Buehler is an internationally recognized psychologist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Supervisor.

Based in Newport Beach, CA, The Buehler Institute is approved as a provider of continuing education by the American Psychological Association, the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, the California Board of Registered Nurses, and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.

Just as Dr. Buehler wrote the textbook she wishes had been around when she was learning sex therapy, (What Every Mental Health Professional Needs to Know about Sex), she designed the programs she wished she could attend.  At the time she was learning sex therapy, Dr. Buehler had a young daughter and a new psychotherapy practice.  Time and resources were in short supply, but she traveled all over the U.S. collecting hours to meet educational requirements for AASECT.

As a former public school teacher and an editor for an educational publishing company, Dr. Buehler has a unique skill set for creating elevated, innovative online learning programs.  Then, for those therapists and counselors wanting to meet all of AASECT’s educational requirements she created a blended learning program.

What do people say about the programs?  “I learned so much!” “I love the flexibility.”  “The material was so interesting my partner logged on and learned with me.”  “This is something I’ve always wanted to learn; thank you for making it possible.”  And more!

And it’s true–you really can enroll today and start your program almost instantly.  No other sex therapy training program allows you to do that!
