Become fully confident in working with modern sexuality
and relationships through our state-of-the-art online program
Join Dr. Tammy Nelson, Board-Certified, Master-Level Therapist
and founder of The Integrative Sex Therapy Institute
 

Nearly every client in an intimate relationship will face the challenge of decreased sexual connection.

Whether the result of routine family and relationship changes, or the distress of life-changing events…

…sexual rupture is prevalent, and it's pushing partners away from each other.

As therapists, we have the opportunity to help clients discover fulfilling and exciting relationships again… both physically and emotionally.

But we need the right training to be effective!

Sex and relationships are constantly changing, and our field has been way behind the curve.

That's why we're excited to announce that enrollment is now open for this certification training that provides the cutting-edge, real-life information every therapist needs to confidently work with sex and intimate relationships.

This is next-level training that goes beyond emotional connection,
to the crucial, often uncomfortable, topic of sexuality.

In this intensive program, you'll get insider access to clinical demonstrations and experiential learning sessions that will show you how to work with low-sex relationships, infidelity, shame, changing cultural and gender roles, redefined monogamy, body-image issues, trauma, sexual dysfunction, and much more!

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to join Tammy Nelson for two group consultation sessions where you can submit your real-life client issues and get step-by-step guidance on how to effectively help.

You'll end this program with the knowledge and skills to confidently handle issues of sexuality and intimacy in any relationship setting.
