Would you feel comfortable revealing the intimate details of your sex life with your partner to an online therapist?
That’s the question millions of couples are contemplating as they consider working out relationship issues, but don’t necessarily want to go to an office and sit across from a flesh-and-blood therapist.
In fact, studies show that many couples experiencing trouble in their relationship never seek help because they are too embarrassed or uncomfortable to discuss their problems with another person.
But a new cyber service called Talkspace offers an alternative. The online counseling service was launched in 2012 by Oren Frank along with his wife Roni Frank. Indeed, it was their own transformative experience in therapy that prompted the idea to create an app that would make it possible for anyone to get professional help at their fingertips.

Doug and Lori (not their real names) are a young couple who had a good relationship but issues involving sex were beginning to create tension. Specifically, Lori was afraid to initiate lovemaking. Doug always had to be the initiator. For Lori, this was frustrating because she was never able to enjoy intimacy with her partner when she really wanted to. It was a problem for Doug because it heaped all responsibility for that aspect of their relationship on him.
Thus, they signed on to Talkspace and were immediately given the choice of three therapists with different kinds of qualifications. They choose one they felt comfortable with. The ball was rolling on their therapy within minutes.
Both Doug and Lori felt the back-and-forth through the Talkspace texting platform was smooth and seamless. Their therapists went right to the heart of the issue, asking key questions. She defined the problem and then offered advice based on her years of experience as a licensed marriage and couples counselor.
Doug and Lori felt confident they were in good hands because the Talkspace process allowed them to check on the credentials of their online therapist – and the end results were also very positive, they said. Doug and Lori came away from their Talkspace experience with a better, more open relationship. Visit: http://www.iamtrillyoga.com/blog-posts/2018/2/13/-talkspace-was-there-when-i-needed-them
