Sticking door

During the summer months when the humidity is high, my door and door jam expand making the door difficult to open, close, and lock properly. Is there a way to correct this without leaving gaps when the door contracts?

More than likely, the door is not sealed on all 6 sides. You could wait till winter, remove the door, seal it and then re install it. Or plane the door just enough to work properly then seal all six sides.
