Southwest Sexual Health Alliance


We are pleased to introduce the Southwest Sexual Health Alliance based in Austin, Texas. Heather M McPherson LPC-S, LMFT and the Texas Section Leader for AASECT and Dylan Davies LMFTA launched the organization this past summer in efforts to provide provocative dialog and radical collaboration around sexual health issues. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities in sexual health to students, psychologists, physicians, social workers, educators,  therapists and sexual health professionals.
