The individual within the Couple

After decades working with couples in the LA area I have learned first hand just how unique and individualistic each Couple really is.

Premarital Counseling and individual issues

This aspect of Premarital Counseling explores the intersection where the stability of the Couple meets the unique needs of the two individuals. It's important to balance the needs for closeness with the need for personal space. These needs often vary between spouses.

How can Premarital Counseling you?

One of the most challenging aspects of being married is balancing your personal needs for growth and self expression with the collective needs of married life.

This is a topic that is optional in Premarital Counseling but should you choose it I am happy to discuss it with you.

Married life requires a certain measure of stability, predictability and a level of accountability to your spouse. Patterns and routines are part of family life.

It can be valuable to explore the issues of independence, sacrifice and personal freedom. Closeness vs personal space is often an underlying yet subtle challenge in married life.

Relationships are very resilient and marriage is a grand, deep adventure

If you want to explore ways to honor yourself as an individual within the context of marriage this can be part of your Premarital Counseling. Just let me know if you would like to discuss it as part of your marriage preparation
