Sex Therapy is a subspecialty of psychotherapy, focusing on the specific concerns related to human sexuality. People of all ages, creeds, health status, ethnic backgrounds, whether partnered or single, may benefit from working with a psychotherapist who specializes in this area. Certified Sex Therapists use specialized clinical skills and theoretical knowledge to help people solve their sexual concerns.
In most states and provinces, Sex Therapy is not a separately licensed or regulated profession, therefore to assure the public of highly qualified practitioners, the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) provides voluntary certification to those therapists who have completed the rigorous certification process. Only those therapists who have met these qualifications may designate themselves as "AASECT Certified Sex Therapists." (this information was derived from www.aasect.org)
Jill Ballman, MRC therapist, is currently under the supervision of Bruce Hersey who is an AASECT approved supervisor. To learn more about sex therapy visit www.aasect.org and to learn more about Bruce Hersey you may visit www.brucehersey.com
