In this episode I’m joined by licensed therapist and certified sex therapist Leslie Gustafson to discussion how anxiety disorders can impact sex, intimacy and relationships in general.  Leslie and I talk about the general approach to this problem, some of the nuances, and  – surprise – we talk about how action oriented behavioral therapies are so effective in addressing not only the sex problem, but the anxiety disorders themselves. Thanks to Leslie for taking the time to help out!
