Dr. Tiger Devore, columnist for Las Vegas Woman magazine about relationships, sex and gender issues, is a respected expert and caring physician.
With over 30 years of practice and expertise working with women and their specific issues, Dr. Tiger strives to help couples or individuals who are experiencing problems. This includes changes in daily living or just dissatisfaction with quality of life, going through transitions as they age, changing jobs, entering or leaving a relationship, going through separation or divorce, death of a partner and approaching dating after a loss. He also works with couples dealing with infidelity, repairing the relationship or deciding to call it quits. Dr. Tiger wants couples to understand that there are many alternatives to divorce. For the last 30 years, Dr. Tiger has also been an activist and advocate for the rights of people disabled by HIV, as well as for a range of people who are considered to be sexually different from the mainstream.
He has worked in sex research clinics at both the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Human Sexuality program at University of California, Los Angeles, wrote a sex education program that was adopted by counseling center and health center staffs at the university and college level nationally, worked for National Institutes of Health as a crisis counselor at its AIDS treatment and evaluation center at UCLA, worked with incarcerated sex offenders, and has been an expert witness in court. Currently he works with the Clark County School District, state legislature and various communities to implement programs for people who might not otherwise have access to services and help needed.
“I have many years of experience dealing with adjustment to long-term disease, including many forms of cancer, AIDS/HIV, being dialysis dependent, or facing and living with organ transplant,” Dr. Tiger explained. “My expertise as a certified sex therapist includes all forms of relationship counseling, as well as dealing with all forms of sexual dysfunction, including extensive knowledge of living well with reduced functioning, any form of fetish or alternative sexual practice or lifestyle, and the entire range of gender considerations, from intersex to sex reassignment.”
He has appeared on television as a sex and relationship expert on “Today,” “Oprah” and “Dr. Oz,” as well as on the Discovery Channel, PBS, National Geographic television, New Zealand State television, the Oprah Winfrey Network, TLC and BBC.
“I love my work, and love seeing the people I work with live well. In fact, many of the people I work with are healthy, everyday people who are just facing challenges and I can help,” Dr. Tiger said. “I encourage those who need my help to please reach out to me.”
