About Dr. Buehler

Stephanie Buehler, MPW, PsyD, CST-S

Licensed Psychologist 17609
AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Supervisor
Welcome!  I’m Dr. Stephanie Buehler, Director of The Buehler Institute.

I am licensed as a psychologist by the State of California (PSY 17609) based in Newport Beach and Irvine, CA.  I am also certified as a sex therapist and supervisor by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists.

I am the author of a bestselling textbook on sex therapy, What Every Mental Health Professional Needs to Know about Sex.  I have a new book, too:  Counseling Couples Before, During, and After Pregnancy: Sexuality and Intimacy Issues.  I’ve written more books and so many articles for both professional and lay audiences that I’ve lost count!

I have spoken all over the U.S. and the globe about my work as a sex therapist.   Now, through continuing education, I am happy to share my passion with you!  

A little more about my background.  I worked as a public school teacher for a decade in the inner city of Los Angeles, CA, then as a writer and editor for an educational publishing company.  This background combined with the knowledge I’ve acquired over the years in my practice with men, women, and couples with all kinds of sexual problems has given me a unique skill set for teaching both online and in person.

As for my own education, I proudly hold degrees from UCLA, USC, Pepperdine University, and California School of Professional Psychology (Alliant University).   

I Welcome Questions!
