About Pamela Finnerty, PhD

Pamela Finnerty, Ph.D. is an instructor in the Integrative Sex Therapy Institute. She has been a therapist in private practice specializing in relationship and couples therapy for over 30 years. Sexuality and aging have been areas of specialization since her earliest training in the 1970’s at the height of explosive shift in paradigms of women’s sexual freedom. She ran women’s sexuality groups and taught human sexuality classes in the 1970’s and in the early 1980’s and completed a certificate in gerontology as part of her doctorate in 1982. She went on to develop and teach one of the first courses in the country on Counseling Older Persons as part of her full-time academic career at George Washington University where she was an Associate Professor of Counseling and an Associate Research Professor of Psychiatry in the medical school. In this later chapter of her long career, she is writing and teaching about the importance of sexual vibrancy and aliveness to the vitality and health of women and men as they age. The blossoming of her career long priority to help older people free and become their best sexual selves is an important element of her own continuing power, strength, and joy.
