This month we will have Dr. Heather S. Howard, who is an expert in the field of sexual rehabilitation and ergonomics come and talk with us about the innovative projects that she is working on. This session promises to be very impactful, and I for one am looking forward to walking away with more information about how to have more comfortable and pleasurable sex. Below is some more information about Heather. I look forward to seeing you all there!

Heather Howard, PhD, MPH, is a board certified sexologist and mind-mind health facilitator.  She founded the Center for Sexual Health and Rehabilitation ( to help clients adjust sexually to challenges and transitions such as chronic health conditions, trauma, and family building. She uses an educational approach to support embodiment, intimacy, comfort and pleasure and recently launched to provide ergonomic sexual adjustments related to physical limitations and pain.

In addition to her private practice work, Heather is an associate professor of clinical sexology at The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality (IASHS); a clinical skills instructor for the Stanford School of Medicine Obstetrics & Gynecology Department; and a gynecological teaching associate at Stanford, Touro, and UCSF medical schools through Project Prepare, where she teaches medical students to perform comfortable and effective breast and pelvic exams.

She received her BA from the University of California at Berkeley (1993), her MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business (1995), and her PhD and MPH in human sexuality from IASHS (2008, 2012), where her doctoral research explored the potential for sexual response to augment the impact of pain management interventions for chronic pelvic pain.  She is board certified through the American College of Sexologists (ACS) and is a CE provider and certified sexuality counselor and educator through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).
