Relationships are beautiful and fulfilling. Yet they can also be quite challenging at times--and it's totally normal!
While some roadblocks can be overcome by having honest communication and working on them together, others are beyond our control. That's where The Wise Self steps in.
As a licensed therapist specializing in counseling and therapy services for couples, I have seen many issues that can arise within a relationship. Couples therapy can help you navigate those rough patches--but how do you know if you need it?
Here are five common signs and how online couples therapy can be an excellent option.
Communication is Lost in Translation
Do you find yourselves speaking different languages--although using the same words?
Communication is key to any healthy and successful relationship, while miscommunication is a common culprit for relationship problems.
So when communication fails, it could lead to frustration, anger, and resentment.
If you struggle to communicate your feelings and thoughts clearly, it might be time to seek the assistance of a professional. In therapy, you will learn how to communicate effectively, listen actively, and empathize.
Constant Conflict Resolution Loop

Caught in an endless loop of arguments? Do conflicts seem to resurface no matter how many times you address them? It's frustrating, isn't it?
Couples therapy can be beneficial in identifying the root cause of these issues while breaking the cycle. We understand that differences can lead to fights, but we can help you communicate more effectively and resolve issues in healthy ways.
Remember those days when you couldn't keep your hands off each other? If the fire that once burned bright has now dwindled to mere embers--it's time to stoke the flames.
Emotional distance is one of the clear signs you need couples therapy. This can appear in many ways, like a lack of intimacy, feeling excluded, or not being on the same page.
With the help of a couples therapy individual session, you and your partner can work on reconnecting and rediscovering the things you love about each other.
Trust is on Thin Ice

Trust forms the foundation of any healthy relationship. But when that foundation begins to crumble, it can leave you feeling lost and vulnerable.
Trust issues may arise due to past infidelity, dishonesty, or emotional betrayal.
And if these issues have taken hold of your relationship, seeking couples therapy is definitely a wise move.
Our compassionate therapists will help you navigate the treacherous waters of mistrust, building a brick-by-brick foundation of trust. Together, we will restore faith, allowing your relationship to flourish once again.
Thinking of Separation or Divorce
If you’re considering separation or divorce, it’s a clear sign that your relationship needs extensive help.
Couples therapy can help you and your partner work through your differences and identify whether your relationship can be salvaged. If not, it can help you end your relationship in a respectful and healthy way.
Wrapping It Up
Recognizing how to know if you need couples therapy is the first step toward healing and rejuvenating your relationship. Remember, seeking support is a sign of strength, not weakness.
