How can you want sex again once it's become difficult, stressful, anxiety producing, and disappointing?

Today's guest has all the answers.

Jessa Zimmerman is a certified sex therapist with a private practice in Seattle. She works with couples to take the stress out of sex and navigate desire discrepancy.

Jessa founded Intimacy with Ease, and created an online course for women with little to no desire to help them actually want sex again.

She is the author of Sex Without Stress; a couple's guide to overcome disappointment, avoidance, and pressure, and the host of the Better Sex podcast.
