The Top 5%

Bubble Quote.png

Do you know what separates therapists like Esther Perel from typical relationally trained psychotherapists?

She is comprehensively trained to include intimacy and sexual health.

Only 5% of therapists and healthcare professionals are comprehensively trained – even though ALL humans are bio-psycho-social-sexual-spiritual in how they are wired and experience life and relationships. 


Research shows clients and patients PREFER practitioners who are TRAINED in all these areas – especially today as life is more complex and we live in a ‘sexually out’ culture. Naïve and biased therapists and medical providers frustrate their patients and cause them to seek care elsewhere. 

Would you like to be in the top 5%?

Is there a way to develop a thriving clinical practice that includes sexual health, treating sexual concerns, and serving the sexually marginalized?

Are you wondering...

Is there a cost-effective and time-efficient way to obtain this training without spending time and money I don’t have?

Can I apply this training toward AASECT certification?

Can I get AASECT supervision that ALSO applies toward state licensure, and by someone who is AAMFT Approved?

Is there someone who will provide guidance toward AASECT certification and mentorship as I launch my career and figure out my niche?

Anchor 1

YES, YES, and YES!!!

The Top 5% is a 12-month program assisting you in applying for AASECT Certification as a Sex Therapist (for psychotherapists) or Sex Counselor (for medical providers or clergy).

In the first nine months, The Top 5% will set you up to be 75% to 95% of the way through ALL of the AASECT educational requirements to become certified. Your supervisor will sit with you and help you assess what you have already completed combining your behavioral health or medical degree, with what you will study with NWIOI.

In the remaining months you will be individually guided through your mentoring hours on how to add the remaining educational requirements to suit your individual needs and how to apply for certification. This is the only program in the country that does not require you to study and pay for material you have already studied in a previous graduate or post-graduate program.

What sets The Top 5% apart from all the other programs?

  • People who have trained with NWIOI for the past six years have gone on to have full practices within six months of completion. Many of those have cash practices, some of them charging $250/hr. Many are now running clinics with several therapists working for them. They are in high demand!

  • The cost of this training WHICH INCLUDES 20hrs of SUPERVISION (valued at $5,000) is less than most of the other programs in the country that DO NOT INCLUDE supervision.

  • We are the only AASECT CE provider in the country that creates a succinct program (1 key Advanced Clinical Sexology course, plus supervision, and business mentoring) and does NOT make you pay for training you already received in graduate school that can be applied toward your AASECT certification.

  • We want our training to be accessible, and ideally would like to see ALL CLINICIANS receive this training. Because of this, we discount our training 30% for everyone.  We ALSO offer a further FIELD GROWTH SCHOLARSHIP to anyone who is from a marginalized community not well represented in the sexual health therapy or education community who has financial need. All they need to do is submit this application for approval (after submitting their Top 5% Application):


  • We provide personalized career mentorship and coaching to each of our students.  Why? Because we are invested in seeing you succeed and fulfill your dreams.


  • We have some of the leading sexual medicine physicians, clinicians, and educators teach in our courses, and bring a diversity of voices and perspectives into our training.


  • This 12-month training will pay for itself IN FULL with less than one new sustained weekly client. You will likely get more as you begin supervision and training! (based on $125hr)


  • You will become part of an incredible nationally recognized community of professionals and colleagues. Some of our past students have presented with faculty at national conferences.


  • Courses are hybrid (online and in person). Supervision is on zoom.

Why wait? Make this the year you join the Top 5%!
