Frequently Asked Questions
How does group work?
Dates and times are set in advance. Each group is limited to four participants and goes for two hours so that each participant receives 30 minutes of attention from Dr. Buehler and group participants on a case they present. A Zoom link is sent out the day before each group.
How many hours of group supervision can I accrue?
Groups meet for two hours each session--so a group that meets four times will earn you eight hours of supervision; a group that meets six times, 12 hours of supervision. Do keep in mind that AASECT limits supervision hour accrual to 6 hours of supervision per month maximum.
Do I have to have sex therapy clients on my caseload?
Yes, you do. Although you would learn a lot from listening, group requires active participation. You will need to have a case to present or be able to follow up on a case at each group meeting.
Will Dr. Buehler be my "primary" supervisor?
No. You will need to identify an AASECT certified supervisor or supervisor-in-training to provide individual supervision and guidance as your "primary" supervisor. This person will need to provide a minimum of 20 hours of individual supervision. They will also sign off on your application when the time comes.
What happens after I sign up?
Once you sign up, Dr. Buehler or someone on the support staff will contact you with details. You will need to sign a contract with Dr. Buehler and provide copies of your license, your resume or CV, the face sheet for your malpractice policy, and proof of AASECT membership.
What about missing a session? Are there any refunds or makeup sessions?
Unfortunately, there is usually little opportunity to make up missed sessions because groups tend to fill up. If you change your mind about group before its start date, however, then please write to us at [email protected] for a full refund.

Meet Dr. Buehler
I am a licensed psychologist, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Supervisor, and a Fellow of the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health. I have been called a "master therapist" because of my level of knowledge and my professional approach to sex therapy and supervision. I enjoy sharing my skills and fostering confidence with therapists and healthcare providers* who are eager to apply what they learn to treating clients. I am the author of several books including What Every Mental Health Professional Needs to Know about Sex, 3rd Ed. My doctorate from Alliant / CSPP is specialized in systems and my Eco-SexualTM Model is fantastic for working with most any type of sexual issue. I especially like Bowen Family Systems but I am versed in almost all approaches to working with couples.
Currently, my schedule is limited to providing group supervision only. This is good news because group supervision is not only cost effective, but it allows you to be exposed to all sorts of case material. In group, I will offer generous clinical feedback, help group members consider possible interventions, and share my insight from working with countless men, women, and couples with all kinds of sexual complaints. In addition to my own books, I authored a chapter on supervision in couples therapy in The Art of Sex Therapy Supervision (Wadley & Siegel, Eds.) Additionally, I have past experience supervising interns in my private practice and in an inpatient setting as a Registered Psychologist. Group supervision is designed to help people who are working on fulfilling requirements for AASECT certification. Each group is limited to four participants. We meet for two hours so that each person has adequate time to present a case and get feedback. With four meetings in the Summer 2022 group sessions, there is time to follow-up on particularly complex or interesting cases. Please note that I can provide supervision to both potential AASECT Certified Sex Therapists and AASECT Certified Counselors. I have lots of experience working in healthcare settings, including a wellness center with an endocrinologist and Hoag Hospital where I worked with people with chronic illness and cancer. I love collaborating with healthcare providers on sexual concerns!
