Do you feel uncomfortable talking to your clients about sex?
Wish you felt more confident in your sexual health assessment and treatment skills?
If so, you are not alone. We all agree that sexual connection is a vital component of relationship wellness; yet a majority of therapists are not asking clients about sexual intimacy because they lack the comfort and competency to do so with ease. Maybe you don’t know what questions to ask, how to respond to common sexual concerns, or how to bring it up without making your clients squeamish.
Are you ready talk about sex with ease and confidence?
Join us for our immersive small group training so that you can make a difference in your clients lives by creating space to talk about sexual wellness.

Finally, a training on the “why” and “how to” integrate sex therapy and couple’s therapy into clinical practice. I appreciated Maegan’s comfortable teaching style and the format she developed for this training. She initially developed a safe space and common language within which to explore and digest the content. The balance between didactic and experiential learning made it easy transport the information into my clinical practice. I walked away from the training with several tools I began to use right away. Her power point slides, handouts, and reference list are jewels to which I have refer to again and again. As a result of this training, I feel much more comfortable assessing and addressing sexual issues with my couples/individuals. I also have a more clear sense of when to refer to experts. So many trainings are theoretical and difficult to translate into clinical practice. This wasn’t one of them. I highly recommend it for any therapist who has had limiting training in this area or who doesn’t have clear sense of how to assess and treat sexual problems.Rita Hill, RN, PsyD
I learned about Maegan’s sex therapy training from a colleague. Prior to learning about it, it had not occurred to me to receive training in sex therapy. In my years of pre- and post-doctoral training, I had absolutely zero exposure to helping clients with sexual problems. I had no idea what I was missing. Maegan’s training introduced a comprehensive sexual history assessment, theoretical frameworks, and intervention techniques that I could apply immediately in my work with clients. I left feeling much more comfortable asking detailed questions about sex, and with a clearer rationale about why sexual functioning matters so much. The icing on the cake was Maegan’s engaging, funny, passionate, and warm presentation and leadership style. I had such a positive experience that I decided to also enroll in her monthly consultation group. I highly recommend this training.Melissa Platt, PhD
Maegan’s knowledge, humor, and approachability made the workshop informative and enjoyable. She offered clear and applicable information about how to work with couples on issues related to sex. I walked away from the day feeling both grounded in research and with tools to begin working with my couples on their sexual intimacy challenges. Every therapist should attend her workshop!Kristen Genzano, MA, LPC
I attended Maegan’s sex therapy training last year and, if you haven’t gotten a chance to see her present, or are on the fence, I would highly recommend it! I learned so much and it has made me a lot more comfortable both talking about sex with couples but also having a much better idea of what is in the scope of my practice and when to refer for additional assistance. It is also pretty unique to be trained by someone who is a certified sex therapist and who is also deeply committed to an EFT approach with couples.Doug Fogel, PsyD
Maegan Megginson, LMFT, LPC
AASECT Certified Sex Therapist
Maegan began her career as a couples therapist in Houston, Texas. She decided to study sex therapy after years of feeling uncomfortable and ineffective talking to her couples about sex. Maegan understands that we are all impacted by our sexuality and believes there should be space in the therapy room to explore these complex and deeply personal topics. Since becoming a sex therapist, Maegan has developed a passion for helping other therapists integrate basic sex therapy skills into their practices.
Maegan is an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and owner of The Center for Couples & Sex Therapy in Portland, Oregon. In addition to running The Center, Maegan appears regularly as the relationship and sexual health expert on KATU’s Afternoon Live talk show, is frequently featured on podcasts and media publications, and facilitates professional consultation groups for therapists who want to deepen their skills in working with sexual health.
Maegan is committed to expanding access to evidenced based information about sexuality across a variety of platforms and is excited to lead another great day of sexual health therapy training in October!
