Dr. Viviana Coles will share some of the evidence-based treatment methods from the Texas Sex Therapy Institute’s certification program and how clinicians can apply this methodology to their own clients.  Participants will leave able to confidently treat clients experiencing problematic sexual issues to help them to experience a healthier and more fulfilling sex life.
