Not in the mood? Apparently more common than not according to OWN.
The popular series “In The Bedroom with Dr. Laura Berman” returns with all-new episodes Tuesday, December 4 (10-11p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
Dr. Berman uncovers what’s really going on between the sheets, as she helps real life couples build stronger relationships and improve their sex lives.
Dr. Laura Berman is an assistant clinical professor of OBGYN and Psychiatry at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, holds a Master's Degree in clinical social work, a Doctorate in health education specializing in human sexuality from New York University, and completed a fellowship in Sexual Therapy with the Department of Psychiatry, New York University Medical Center. Dr. Berman is a wife and the mother of three boys.
No issues are off limits as Dr. Berman delves into the couples’ history and candidly evaluates the core issues of their conflict, prescribing therapeutic relationship-building challenges designed to rekindle their sense of adventure and romance. From an engaged couple who postponed their wedding three times, to a husband and wife with very different sexual appetites, to a couple who have reversed typical gender roles and a fragile union strained after the loss of a baby, Dr. Laura Berman counsels every relationship with delicacy to help heal and rediscover their intimate connection.
