In brief: Yes

Yes, a marriage counselor may be able to help.
However, it would be even better, if you both can agree to see the marriage counselor, individually and/or together. The counselor may be able to see the underlying issue that is causing problems and help you straighten them out.

In brief: Together

Kids? Issues with sex? Yes, see a counseler. Intimacy most important, sharing, communication, financial stuff.
But also allowing eachother space to grow and have friends of your own. Respect, empathy for eachother. Counseler can help with this. Ask around for a good one though...

Consider a coach instead of a counselor. A coach teaches you improved skills in handling communication break down. So that you could address some of those other concerns. www.histruthclc.com
