Cliff and Joyce Penner met at Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska in 1959 and married in 1963. Joyce then earned her RN in St. Paul and a B.S. in Nursing from the University of Washington.

Cliff earned his B.A. from Bethel College, his M.A. in theology and his Ph.D in clinical psychology in 1971 from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena.

They were launched into the world of human sexuality and sexual therapy when Cliff was asked to teach sixty women about sexual adjustment. After training with Masters and Johnson and others, they both joined their professional lives working as Sexual Therapists as well as leading seminars called “Birds and Bees” weekends for preteens and parents, and professional training workshops. Their first book “The Gift of Sex” has become a classic sexual manual worldwide.

They have appeared on television talk shows from the 700 Club to Sally Jesse Raphael and hundreds of radio shows. This highly experienced team is dedicated to helping people discover lasting happiness and freedom from the emotional pain of unhealthy thoughts, practices, and relationships. They work together as a team counseling with couples, teaching sex education within various school systems, leading sexual enhancement weekends for couples, lecturing on human sexuality at universities and training fellow professionals. The evening promises to be most entertaining as well as educational!
