Meet Dr. Minwalla

Drawing of Dr. Omar Minwalla's face.

As humanity moves full speed ahead into the modern tech dimension, we have inadvertently left our gender and sexuality behind. Both gender and sexuality require individual and socially reinforced human consciousness. I believe that our survival depends upon the intentional development and nurturance of these parts of our nature, just as we invest in the latest model of the iPhone.

With more than twenty years of clinical experience treating deceptive sexuality and developing the Deceptive Sexuality and Trauma (DST) Model, Licensed Psychologist and Clinical Sexologist Dr. Omar Minwalla has become an authoritative voice and leading educator on the topics of compulsive sexual behavior, sexual addiction, and infidelity. 

Dr. Minwalla’s live online courses include the Be A Better Man course for men who struggle with deceptive sexuality, and a Professional Education and Certification-Credentialing Program for Psychologists in Deceptive Sexuality & Trauma (DST) and Treatment (DSTT).

Dr. Minwalla has helped hundreds of men, intimate partners, couples, children, and families impacted by compartmentalized deceptive patterns of sexual-relational entitlement and sexual acting-out behaviors, otherwise known as DST. From the hornet's nest to the vanishing point, the Minwalla Model is calling you to vibe in to abuse-victim trauma (AVT) consciousness.
