What’s your sex life like now that you are sheltered in place? Do you find yourself fantasizing more, less, or about the same? Are you satisfied with the frequency and type of intimacy in your relationship? Are you able to talk to your partner about what you want, or share your fantasies with them? Questions like these and many more may come up during a session with a couples therapist. Many couples have found its easier to answer these questions when meeting a therapist on Zoom rather than face to face sessions.
