How to convince my wife to attend relationship counselling

Hey guys,
My wife and I were in a relationship from our high school days, and we have been married for almost three years now. We've had some communication problems between us as long as I can remember. Gradually, I started to feel like my wife is not listening to me. I tried to talk with my wife about my day, but she will frequently interfere with stories from her day. Now, I tend to never talk about my day. I have always been a good listener, and to be fair, her stories are generally more enjoyable.
I want to interact clearly with my wife, which is not occurring right now. Sometimes I shared my problems with friends online, and one day my wife found out that after reading my email and then a great argument blew up. So I found out that sharing the distress of our relationship with friends makes them worse, so I tried to keep them to myself.
I feel like we've got some issues to work through, and I think we need some outside help to solve this. So I asked my wife about attending relationship counselling . But she says that it's just a waste of money and a counsellor will only tell us things that we already know.
I've pointed out that a marriage counsellor helps to facilitate communication between us, and her response has been "what is the need for a facilitator to help us communicate." She does not realize what I'm trying to convey. I want to convince my wife that going to a therapist is not a waste of time and money, but I'm not sure how. Does anyone have any tips on how I can handle this?
