Interfaith/Pre-marital & Marriage Counseling usually consists of 1- 4 sessions depending on the situation. As a couple and family therapist, I believe it is important and helpful to take a look at the family that we each grew up in. We all adapt in some way in our first family and bring some of that into our relationship.
One way I work with couples is through the use of Gottman Couples Therapy. I have completed level 1, 2 and 3 of this couple treatment method. This is a research based, goal-oriented approach to help you arrive at a more fulfilling and healthy relationship.
Interfaith/Premarital & Marriage counseling is a highly engaging and effective way to help couples get back to the heart of their relationship. We start with the places you find common ground (your foundation) and then take action to create more connection and possibilities for your life together.
I value gender, sexual, racial, class, disability and religious/spiritual identity. Give me a call at 202-215-2790 or email me at JKogan@Jennifer Kogan.com so we can talk about how I can help you. You can also contact me here.
