Who We Are

Dr. Clifford and Joyce Penner

The Penners are best known for their pioneer work in encouraging people of all faiths to connect their sexuality with their belief system ─ helping them embrace sex as good and of God.

Clifford – a licensed clinical psychologist, received a B.A. from Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, earned an M.A. in theology from Fuller Theological Seminary, and holds a Ph.D. from Fuller’s Graduate School of Psychology.

Joyce – a registered nurse and clinical nurse specialist, holds a B.S. in nursing from the University of Washington. Her master’s degree in psychosomatic nursing and nursing education is from UCLA.

They work together as a team:

  • Counseling with individuals and couples

  • Teaching sex education within various school systems

  • Leading sexual enhancement weekends for couples

  • Lecturing on human sexuality at universities

  • Training fellow professionals

In addition to their therapy practice, the Penners have available resources (books & DVDs) and seminars for healthy sexuality.
