Meet Dr. Stephanie Buehler!

Passionate Educator, Expert Sex Therapist

Hello! I'm Dr. Stephanie Buehler, a dedicated psychologist and sex therapist and President of The Buehler Institute and My journey in psychology has been driven by a single, powerful mission: to illuminate the path for mental health and healthcare providers in understanding and addressing sexual concerns sensitively and effectively.

Breaking the Silence

In my extensive career as a clinician and consultant, I've witnessed firsthand the silent struggle many people face due to sexual issues. This struggle, often shrouded in shame and guilt, inspired me to dedicate my life to educating providers. My goal? To bridge the knowledge gaps and equip them to handle sexual issues ethically and competently.

Author and Speaker

I've poured my insights into several books, notably What Every Mental Health Professional Needs to Know about Sex, 3rd Ed. These works reflect my deep understanding of the field and have led me to speak to audiences worldwide, sharing knowledge and fostering dialogue.

Collaborative Practice

My experience extends to private practice, often in collaboration with medical professionals, and advisory roles in healthcare settings. This multidisciplinary approach underscores the importance of comprehensive sexual health education for all healthcare providers.
