Regain THAT Feeling

By Dr. Mitchell S. Tepper, PhD, MPH, Sexologist

Hi, I'm Dr. Tepper author of Regain That Feeling: Secrets to Sexual Self-Discovery. I'm a sexologist by training.

When people ask me what's a sexologist I generally respond that I'm a perpetual student of human sexuality. I have a Masters in Public Health and a PhD in Human Sexuality Education. I am like the Dr. Ruth or Dr. Laura Berman for sexuality and disability.

Disability and Sexuality

As a sexologist, I conduct research, develop educational programs, do public speaking, and provide counseling and coaching. As a person who has grown up with a chronic condition and acquired a disability at age 20 by breaking my neck when working as a lifeguard, I understand the unique issues that people with disabilities or serious medical conditions have to deal with when it comes to finding a partner, maintaining a relationship and adapting to facilitate optimal sexual pleasure.

In the months to come, I will be writing short articles and fielding select questions that come in through the Abilities community so ask away!

Mitchell Tepper

If you can't wait for your question to be answered or to speak with me at an upcoming Abilities Expo gathering, I offer individualized coaching services via and. of course I encourage you to read my book, Regain That Feeling!
