Blaming Each Other: Frustration often mounts when your physical and emotional needs are not met and destructive emotions such as blame can plague a relationship.

A virtual counselor can help you work together as a team to discover what lies at the heart of intimacy issues.
Difficulty Communicating: You and your partner are having difficulty communicating and talking at each other while you struggle to assert yourselves. Virtual marriage counseling can help you learn ways and techniques on how to improve communication.
You’ve Lost Connection: You are feeling in a place of perpetual disconnect from your partner. You are living apart while living together and want a deeper connection with your partner. Virtual marriage counseling helps work on feeling more connected as you learn to understand and know your partner at a deeper level and for them to know you.
Feeling Easily Triggered: If you and your partner are fighting more frequently and intensely, a therapist can help you get everything out on the table. Learning what your triggers are and how to address disagreements or issues in a healthy way will help make your marriage more satisfying and fulfilling.
Your Marriage Was Already Having Problems: If you and your partner have already been experiencing problems and haven’t worked on them, it’s easy to continue to grow more distant and disconnected.
