Marriage Counseling in Toluca Lake Burbank - Marriage Expert

Find hope, healing and restoration for your marriage. 

Marriage is the most important relationship you will create. Happy marriages produce happy kids.

Marriage is a unique relationship and unlike any other relationship. Marriage requires attention and attending to! Not many couples unfortunately have the right relationship skills when it comes to communication. Many couples report in spite of how much they each love each other, they keep fighting and feel stuck and frustrated in their marriages. We are relational beings. That is right you are designed to connect with your spouse. Let me give you an example. 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 before driving? In marriage, you must have an awareness not only of yourself, but of your spouse too.

Seeking awareness in your relationship and the right type of engaging with your spouse would lead you to a better communication. You must be attentive to your marital relationship as you are to your car.

What is the dance in your marriage today? Do you have the awareness, the right relationship skills? What did you learn growing up? Are you ignoring the problems in your marriage today? The longer you wait the get the right type of help, the more painful it will be to get your marriage on the right and healthy track.

Adversity in 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 talk to each other, whether resolving conflicts and disagreements or ignoring them. It’s important to discover your love style which explains your marital problems and much more. You can take the love style quiz as part of your counseling process with marriage counselor Jousline Savra.

Your love style plays a huge role in every aspect of your marriage. 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 impact the rest of your family. Your kids are significantly impacted by how you talk to your spouse. 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 leave a lifetime lasting impression that won’t be erasable.

You as a couple have a relational dance, and it is your relational dance that keeps you stuck in your marriage and cause communication problems. This dance keeps you arguing, experiencing certain upsets and feelings such as feeling frustrated and misunderstood, and as a result you are repeating a painful repetitive cycle year after year. Couples don’t know that there is a better way. Many couples struggle in the area of sexual intimacy. Many couples are not aware of all the underlying unresolved emotions can impair their sexual intimacy. Emotional connection is the foundation to your 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. 

Do you and your spouse need to rejuvenate, restore or rescue your marriage today?
Do you need to refresh your relationship and your communication skills?
Does your marriage need to be rescued or restored?

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 or your story today? Are you tired of your problems with communicating with your spouse and you 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. Have the courage to face, and address it with the right marriage counselor.

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. Are you able to be open and kind as a spouse as you face challenges in your relationship? Do you know how to have difficult conversations yet remain feeling connected with the other person?

Serious Change is only possible when you understand the root to your couple's problems and when you take action to make changes!   Couple's therapy is a process in that every couple can benefit from. 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.
