Therapist Finder

Find a Therapist | Psychology Today

Psychology Today is one of the largest mental health resources online and has published a print magazine since 1967. They offer a therapist locator tool to help you find professionals in your local area in 20 countries. You can search by city, zip code, or name. This directory is not specific to sex therapy; however, once you do your initial search, you can further refine it by selecting areas of specialization (e.g., sex therapy, sexual abuse, LGBT) to narrow down the results.

Psychologist Locator | American Psychological Association

The American Psychological Association is an organization for professional psychologists in the United States. Visit their locator page to find a professional near you. You can search by city and state or by zip code. You can also search by provider name and/or practice area. Note that this tool is not specific to sex therapists, although many psychologists do specialize in sexuality-related areas.

American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists

The American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) was founded in 1967 and is one of the largest organizations that offers rigorous certification programs in sexuality education, counseling, and therapy. Visit their professional locator page to find a certified sex educator, counselor, or therapist near you. You can search by both country and state, as well as by the type of professional you are seeking.

Certification Programs

Sexual Health Alliance

The Sexual Health Alliance (SHA) offers interdisciplinary training programs taught by experts for those seeking certification in sex therapy, counseling, education, coaching, and consulting. They offer their own certifications; however, their programs are designed to meet the requirements necessary for AASECT certification for those who desire that additional credential. They offer both in-person and virtual training opportunities, with events scheduled throughout the year. Dr. Lehmiller has taught several courses through SHA on sexual fantasy and desire, and he also leads some study abroad opportunities through SHA on sexuality and culture. Visit SHA’s website to learn more about current certification and training opportunities.
