With no fewer than 14 degrees and certifications between them — including two PhDs and three Master’s Degrees — and a thriving counseling practice, Drs. Chuck and Jo-Ann Bird are the most prepared and experienced experts in the field of relationships today. It also doesn’t hurt that they are also a married couple with almost 2 decades of wedded bliss to their credits (married since 1998!). They don’t just talk the talk. They walk the walk, and they know where theory meets reality for those who are seeking a long-term, loving, passionate and committed relationship.
They are also open-minded enough to accept newer forms of non-traditional relationships such as open marriages and polyamorous relationships, and help those who choose those avenues to better navigate those sometime rocky roads.
Further, they are both Board Certified Clinical Sexologists, qualified and experienced to help people overcome psychologically based sexual disorders. Chuck is also a registered nurse who can recognize the difference between a psychological problem and a physical one. They are understanding enough to help people out of the quicksand, but experienced enough to help people be honest and open about their sexual issues.
They are realists, but also optimists, and clarion voices who believe that love can conquer all as long as couples can be honest with both each other and themselves. They are proud to have an Evidence-Based Practice which means they integrate the best research or evidence with clinical expertise and patient values (definition from American Psychological Association).
From college classrooms to community centers, local networking groups to national and international professional organizations, Drs. Chuck and Jo-Ann Bird are frequent lecturers offering unique and powerful presentations on a variety of relationship and intimacy topics. They are also sexuality and relationship expert commentators for local and national television and radio shows as well as other media outlets.
