A revolutionary approach to sexual desire
Low desire, no desire, and mismatched desire are couples' most common love-life problems. Unresolved desire difficulties cause marital dissatisfaction, emotional alienation, limited intimacy, extramarital affairs, divorce, and family instability.
World-renowned sex and marital therapist, and international best-selling author, Dr. David Schnarch, will offer ground-breaking knowledge and time-proven solutions to turn these problems into profound desire, deeper intimacy, sexual passion, and personal growth. This revolutionary approach to sexual desire and sexual desire problems is based on 30 years of clinical experience.
Dr. Schnarch's most recent book is Intimacy & Desire. Visit his webiste for more information about him, his approach, and his newest book.
