I’m curious of how you became a sex therapist and what do you do educationally to be credentialed?  I’m an RN and with great libido and still not in menopause yet! As I’ve matured in years I’m not as shy and want to know more. I feel like a I’m in my prime. As a RN I wonder about the how I could maybe get a degree in sexuality with my RN to maybe counsel? I know my friends have always come to me with issues and questions, I laugh that they think I’m the sex counselor!! He he. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    I’m not a sex therapist. I’m a journalist who has covered sex research and sex therapy for 46 years. I got a lot of questions, and eventually put my reporting to use doing sex counseling.

    If you’d like to explore getting credentialed as a sex educator, counselor, or therapist, visit the organization that provides credentials in the U.S.: the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. There are plenty of RNs in AASECT. Also plenty of AASECT members who came to sexology in midlife as a second career. May all your dreams come true!
