About Us

About The Collective

Who we are: We are a collective of comprehensively trained, client-centered, and value-focused therapists who have a sincere interest in helping people improve connection to themselves, their sexuality, and their relationships with others. Our values reflect who we are as individuals and as a

collective, where inclusivity is paramount, diversity is celebrated, and our work considers the needs of those we serve.

What we do: As holistically-oriented mental health providers, a shared vision brought us together. We are committed to creating positive change from the individual level to the systemic. The clinicians at PNWSTC teach at universities, provide in-service trainings to medical practices, and educate other therapists seeking sex therapy certification through mentorship or more formal supervision of their clinical practice. We believe that passion, pleasure, and intimacy can be sources of self-awareness and growth.
 
Why we’re here: As a collective, we seek to support one another’s professional development and individual growth as we navigate the complexity of being a mental health professional and healing provider in our world. Our practice focuses on self-awareness, sexual empowerment, and deconstructing the barriers that keep people from the lives they desire.

Requirements such as academic degrees, specific core subject areas and clock hours of education and field-related experience and training are identified for each category of certification. Field experience and practical application of skills and competencies carried out under trained and approved supervision or consultation are crucial aspects of certification.

Applicants must substantiate completion of certification requirements with academic transcripts and other formal documentation, and must also undergo peer review of their credentials.
