Group Supervision

For over 20 years, I have supervised either therapists fulfilling licensing requirements or for AASECT certification. 
About Dr. Stephanie 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, with a third edition coming out in fall of 2021. My doctorate from Alliant / CSPP is specialized in systems and my Eco-Sexual(TM) Model is great for working with most any type of sexual issue.
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. I love group!

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 also authored a chapter on supervision in couples therapy in The Art of Sex Therapy Supervision (Wadley & Siegel, Eds.) I also 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 eight meetings, 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.

TUESDAY GROUP: April 20, May 4, May 18, June 1, June 15, June 29, July 13, and July 27

Frequently asked questions

How does group work?

Dates and times are set and chosen in advance. Each group is limited to four participants and goes for two hours so that each participant receives 30 minutes of supervision on a case they present.

How many hours of group supervision can I get?

Groups are designed to meet for eight weeks to provide 16 hours of supervision. If you are going for AASECT certification, you can apply a maximum of 25 hours of group toward your requirements.

Do I have to have sex therapy cases?

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. Dr. Buehler is currently only providing group supervision. You will need to identify an AASECT certified supervisor or supervisor-in-training to provide individual supervision and guidance as your "primary" supervisor.

What happens after I sign up?

Once you sign up, Dr. Buehler or someone on the support staff will contact you with details. Basically, 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.

I'm in! How do I pay?

Find the group you want to attend and choose the payment option that is right for you. 

What about missing a session? Are there any refunds?

If you must miss a session, you can make it up in a future group within 12 months *if there is an opening*. If Dr. Buehler must reschedule, then a makeup group session will be offered. There are no partial refunds.
