Sex Therapy Supervision

for AASECT Certification: IFS, EMDR or Hypnosis Perspective

Low Fee AASECT Certification Supervision

AASECT Certified Sex Therapist Peg Dawson, LMHC, who practices in the Boston area, is obtaining supervision of supervision to become an AASECT Sex Therapist Supervisor. Officially, she is an SIT (Supervisor In Training). She also has had significant training in IFS, EMDR & Clinical Hypnosis.


I will provide the "supervision of supervision" that Peg needs, but she needs supervisees who will engage in the AASECT Sex Therapist Certification process. Please see details of this process below. Candidates must already be licensed in a mental health profession.


Peg is willing to do this for a VERY REASONABLE fee. Her supervision will be eligible for certification supervision hours. If you know of anyone who may be interested, please forward this e-flyer, have them look over the certification specs at assect.org, and contact Peg at peghurleydawson@icloud.com or 978-852-2501.

Distance Consultation via Phone or Skype


If you are considering pursuing certification in Sex Therapy, and also have a background in any of these other advanced specialties, please contact me.



I have been providing supervision and consultation for AASECT, ASCH, EMDRIA, and IFS candidates by phone and Skype for a number of years; both individually and in groups.


Many consultees have benefitted from the opportunity to integrate more than one of these modalities due to my multiple specializations. For example; my background in IFS and Clinical Hypnosis informs the application of EMDR, and all of these can enhance the provision of Sex Therapy.

AASECT Certification

Certification by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors & Therapists (AASECT) requires 50 hours of consultation from a Certified Sex Therapy Supervisor in addition to completing 90 hours of coursework in human sexuality education, 60 hours of sex therapy training, and a 10 hour Sexual Attitudes Reassessment (SAR) experience.

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice in Altoona, PA for the past 30 years. Please visit my website: www.brucehersey.com


Over the past ten years, my practice has evolved to include consultation and training for other mental health professionals seeking certification in advanced psychotherapy methods, such as: Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), Clinical Hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), and Sex Therapy. Much of this work is done via phone or Skype, with consultees in other states and countries.


For my office clients, I offer a highly integrated approach combining these advanced methods in a holistic way to help them travel their own paths toward health, healing, and recovery. Professionals obtaining consultation to develop advanced skills for their own practices also benefit from the combination of these advanced specialties and the opportunity to blend and integrate them at a high level.


I am an AASECT Certified Supervisor and Diplomate of Sex Therapy, and an Approved Consultant in both Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) & EMDR (EMDRIA).

I am also a Certified IFS Therapist (Internal Family Systems Therapy), having completed IFS Levels One, Two & Three Trainings and participated as a Program Assistant in several Level Ones.
