Anita's clocked hundreds of hours in therapy, and she's a fan. But there's a part of the profession she hasn't tapped yet: sex therapy. This kind of counseling is designed to support couples — and individuals — through challenges with their bodies and in the bedroom. Some experts join her to share how it can help people reconnect, plus she tests a smartphone app that helps folks broach uncomfortable sexual conversations.

Meet the guests:

  • Dr. Lauren Walker is a registered clinical psychologist, an associate professor at the University of Calgary and a sex therapist.
  • Dr. Donna Oriowo is a sex and relationship therapist based in Maryland.
  • Zoë Kors is a consultant for the sexual wellness app Coral.
