Full bio:

Jessa Zimmerman is a licensed couples’ counselor and nationally certified sex therapist. She works in private practice in Seattle, WA. Over the course of her therapy career, she has focused almost exclusively on helping couples with their emotional and sexual intimacy.

In her years of clinical experience, Zimmerman has treated hundreds of couples who have struggled to feel sexual desire and fulfillment. Her clients describe having a good relationship in other ways, but their sex life has become difficult to the point that they start to avoid sex. These are people who love each other but are struggling to have a sex life they both enjoy.

She specializes in helping these couples who find that sex has become stressful, negative, disappointing, or pressured. She educates, coaches, and supports people as they go through her 9-phase experiential process that allows them real world practice in changing their relationship and their sex life.

Zimmerman received her Master’s in Psychology from LIOS college of Saybrook University and Sex Therapist certification from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). She has done extensive training in couples’ therapy, with a focus on Crucible® Therapy with Dr. David Schnarch.

She is the author of Sex Without Stress; A Couple's Guide to Overcoming Disappointment, Avoidance & Pressure. She is the host of the Better Sex Podcast and has appeared on numerous other podcasts as an expert guest. She is a regularly featured expert in the media, including Refinery29, Marriage.com, Business Insider, and Mind Body Green.

She lives in Seattle with her partner and youngest child of three.[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_section el_id=”Appearances” css=”.vc_custom_1531411032947{padding-right: 20% !important;padding-left: 20% !important;}”][vc_row][vc_column][vc_images_carousel images=”1794,1793,1792,1790,1901,1900,1894,1898,2072,2073″ img_size=”full” onclick=”custom_link” custom_links_target=”_blank” slides_per_view=”4″ autoplay=”yes” wrap=”yes” title=”Podcast Appearances” custom_links=”#E-8_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”][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_padding_divider size=”75″][vc_images_carousel images=”1904,1903,1884,1857,1855,1922,2077,2078″ img_size=”full” onclick=”custom_link” custom_links_target=”_blank” slides_per_view=”3″ autoplay=”yes” wrap=”yes” title=”Print Articles and Interviews” custom_links=”#E-8_aHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cudGhpc2lzaW5zaWRlci5jb20lMkZ3aHktdmFnaW5hLWh1cnRzLWFmdGVyLXNleC0yMDE4LTglMkNodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy5yZWZpbmVyeTI5LmNvbSUyRmluZmlkZWxpdHktZHJlYW1zLWFib3V0LWNoZWF0aW5nJTJDaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cudGhpc2lzbWFnLmNvbSUyRiUyQ2h0dHBzJTNBJTJGJTJGd3d3LnBhcmVudG1hcC5jb20lMkZhcnRpY2xlJTJGc2hhcmVkLXBhcmVudGluZy13aHktbW9kZXJuLWZhbWlsaWVzLWFyZS1jaG9vc2luZy1lcXVhbGl0eSUyQ2h0dHBzJTNBJTJGJTJGd3d3LmRhdGluZ2FkdmljZS5jb20lMkZmb3Itd29tZW4lMkZqZXNzYS16aW1tZXJtYW4taGVscHMtY291cGxlcy10YWtlLWludGltYWN5LXRvLXRoZS1uZXh0LWxldmVsJTJDaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZsb3Zlc3VqZS5jbyUyRjJuVHFESmclMkNodHRwcyUzQSUyRiUyRnd3dy5taW5kYm9keWdyZWVuLmNvbSUyRmFydGljbGVzJTJGaG93LXRvLWhhdmUtYS1wcm9kdWN0aXZlLWFyZ3VtZW50LWFjY29yZGluZy10by1hLWNvdXBsZXMtY291bnNlbG9yJTJDaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cubWFycmlhZ2UuY29tJTJGYWR2aWNlJTJGcGh5c2ljYWwtaW50aW1hY3klMkZicmluZy1iYWNrLXlvdXItc2V4LWRyaXZlJTJG”][mk_padding_divider size=”75″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1539792751534{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]Mind Body Green:  The Subtle But Powerful Mindset Shift That Can Transform Your Sex Life
