Marriage Counseling in Toluca Lake Burbank 

Find hope, healing and restoration for your marriage. 

Marriage is the most important relationship you will create. Not just for your marriage, but happy marriages produce happy children.

Marriage is a unique relationship and unlike any other relationship. Marriage requires attention and attending to by each spouse. As relational beings, you are designed to connect with your spouse. When you get in your car do you check in with your dashboard before driving it, do you make time to notice your fuel and other basic needs. In marriage you must have an awareness not only of yourself but your spouse. Seeking awareness is that act of attending to each other’s souls. You must be attentive to your marital relationship as you are to your car. What is your dance in your marriage today? Do you have the awareness, the skills and the ability to attend to each other’s needs and souls. What did you learn growing up? What did you see? How would you know to do that if you are not aware and have the skills in the relationship. This is no one’s fault, it is about learning how to fill our emotional tanks?

Adversity in your marriage provokes growth! Find out how to grow closer to each other.

In order to experience an authentic connection in marriage, both spouses must be able to communicate their emotional needs clearly. Many people don’t know how to do this! Your early life experiences and your early history plays a significant role in your marital relationship and how you two communicate. It’s important to discover your love style which explains your marital problems and much more. You can take this love style quiz as part of your counseling process with counselor Jousline Savra.

Your love style plays a huge role in every aspect of your marriage. It is imperative that you make space and time to attend to each other, and know how to go through your marital conflicts or struggles. The longer you wait as a couple, and ignore or delay facing your problems, the more painful your experiences will be. Your marital problems and tense relationship also impacts the rest of your family. Your kids are significantly impacted by how you talk or treat each other. The happier and healthier your marriage, the happier your kids will be. No matter what age your kids are, the quality of your marital relationship and how you talk or treat each other leaves a lifetime lasting impression that won’t be erasable.

For better or worse, our early life experiences teach us how to love. As a married couple, you are in a particular relational dance that keeps you arguing, experiencing certain upsets and feelings such feeling frustrated and misunderstood.  Couples don’t know that there is a better way.  Also, many couples struggle in the area of sexual intimacy. True sexual fulfillment really works in the context of emotional and relational intimacy and love. Many couples are not aware of all the underlying unresolved emotions can impair their sexual intimacy. 

After attraction, dating and marriage, many many couples don’t know that their histories shape their sexuality. Couples don’t know how to build a sexually satisfying marriage. Couples are unaware that the role of friendship and their attachment style plays a critical role in healthy sexuality in marriage. They are unaware that abuse, porn, affairs and other hard stuff destroys intimacy and connection between two people. We are designed as sexual beings with a purpose in mind. 

You can get the right help by meeting with a relationship expert. She uses attachment theory, and concrete communication tools that change marital relationship for better. This is totally up to you.  If your marriage needs improvement or restoration, this is the place to get the right help. Are you ready to experience a true closeness and connection in your relationship?

Is your marriage in crisis?

Are you experiencing betrayal or infidelity in your marriage, or perhaps your husband struggles with compulsive sexual habits such as pornography? Do you feel confused, lost and hopeless?

Are you dealing with unresolved anger and long term pain between you two? Passing of time will not resolve your marital problems.

What is your situation today? Are you tired of your marital communication challenges and don't know how to make things better between you two?  Are you and your spouse constantly bickering, dealing with sex, money, work-related issues or family-in-law matters?  Another common problem is that many couples don’t know how to talk about the reality and the role of sex in their marriage.  Can you have an honest talk about sex?  Is that original attraction you felt still alive in your relationship?
The important key to solving marital problems is when you both can have an honest conversation without reacting to your spouse. If you don’t know how to do that please take the time, and get the right professional help. The passing of time or ignoring your problems will not solve your relationship problems. The longer you wait the more complex and difficult it will be.

There is a big difference between being truly married, feel close and connected with your spouse versus just living life together and being on the same team and sharing tasks.

Those couples who have a "normal" amount of arguments and miscommunications as well as those who find their relationship in serious jeopardy. 
  • You long to connect with your spouse but no matter what you attempt, it does not work.
  • You haven't had a real conversation for days or weeks.
  • Sometimes you argue over money or late nights out.
  • You no longer have heart-to-heart conversations and when it comes to sex, you may say, what's that?

Most common issues that bring couples into therapy are: infidelity, sexual concerns, separation or divorce, not feeling happy in the marriage, not being able to get along, loss of attraction, healing a traumatic event such as not knowing how to deal with spouse's addiction and having conflicts with the in-laws.  Among the most difficult parts of any healing is that first step.

Basically your relationship is on the rocks. You both know it, but you both avoid the tough conversation because you aren't sure how to fix things and you are not even sure if you want to. If you do talk about what is going on you will end up having a huge argument. Sadly, this scenario applies to so many couples, married or not.
