Please note: These continuing education credits apply on a case by case basis, according to a candidate’s background and whether they meet stated AASECT criteria.
As an approved AASECT provider, our program has been approved, meaning you do not need to have a supervisor to take our program. You will earn AASECT-approved CE credits at the completion of the program, where you will be awarded the Certified Sex Coach™ designation.

Dr. Martha Tara Lee
Your AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator Supervisor

She has personally worked with more than 1,300 individuals and couples combined face-to-face, as well as at least another 2,500 people over 450 events over the last eight years.
Often cited in the media, Martha is the appointed sex expert for Men’s Health Singapore (since 2009), and Men’s Health Malaysia (since 2010).

WHY SELECT DR. MARTHA AS YOUR AASECT SEXUALITY EDUCATOR SUPERVISOR
The dire lack of sexuality education growing up only served to fuel the fire in the belly of Relationship Counselor and Clinical Sexologist Dr. Martha Tara Lee. Innately recognizing the human right to sexual information, education, and support, Martha sought to understand all facets of human sexuality in order to serve her own people, as well as humanity. She is driven by a strong desire to support people to come into their power – including their sexuality. This means learning about ourselves, what we stand for, what is important to us and taking personal responsibility and decisive actions for all aspects of our lives. Hence it would include embracing and honoring our sexuality, recognizing that we are the drivers of our sex lives, and asserting our sexual rights (to safer sex, to saying no, and to pleasure).
In her previous careers, Martha worked in corporate communications as well as the non-profit sector, therefore her skills in media relations, events management, public relations, communications planning, marketing, and internal communications have helped when managing her own practice, as well as supporting her supervisees. Martha possesses a strong work ethic, and lives by: “do no harm”, and “do what you say, say what you do”. Despite her dedication and seriousness about her work, Martha fundamentally believes that sex is meant to be fun, wonderful, amazing, and sacred. As such, this combination of serious light-heartedness has shone through repeatedly. Supervisees can expect a fair, driven, passionate, yet sensitive, intuitive and compassion champion rooting for their professional and personal success.
