I am an AASECT Supervisor for those seeking to become a Certified Sex Therapist

If you are interested in contracting with me to offer the supervision you will need to become certified here is some pertinent information:



$150 for 1 hour of individual supervision

AASECT Requirements for Sex Therapist Certification can be found at

An overview of some of the requirement details dealing directly with the supervision process:

  • 300 hours of AASECT supervised clinical treatment of patients/clients who present with sexual concerns.
  • 50 hours of supervision with an AASECT Certified Supervisor of Sex Therapy.
  • Supervision can take place in either an individual or group context. Group supervision can account for no more than 50% of the total supervision hours. 
  • Group supervision must provide the equivalent of 30 minutes per individual in the group. Therefore a group with two (2) individuals can be no shorter than one (1) hour. A group with three (3) individuals can be no shorter than 90 minutes. And a group with four (4) individuals can be no shorter than two (2) hours. The maximum group supervision length for one (1) supervisor with four (4) supervisees is four (4) hours.
  • Supervision must occur over a period of no less than 18 months. Total hours per month may not exceed six 6 hours.

You will need to fill out a Contract for Supervision

You will also need to send me the following in pdf format:
