Struggles, conflict, and differences in relationships and marriages are inevitable. My goal as a couples’ counselor is to help you work through these conflicts, and to realize the full potential of your relationship. I offer solution-focused counseling and strategies to boost communication skills, and increase feelings of trust, good will, and connection.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and family therapist with twenty years of ongoing training, social work, and private practice experience. I offer solution-focused counseling and strategies to boost communication skills and increase feelings of trust, good will and connection.
I have helped couples and troubled relationships overcome and work through issues such as mistrust, issues surrounding an affair, intimacy, communication differences, parenting and family struggles.
My style is active, warm, non-judgmental with a little gentle humor, as well. I consider and honor differences in how people think and feel. Should you decide to consult with me, you will be comfortable and supported in whatever style suits you best. There is no one right way to communicate, the key is understanding what makes each other tick and learning how to connect effectively.
Growing up in our first family we learn to adapt in certain ways. We can bring this perspective with us as we make our way in the world. This is neither good nor bad; just information we can work with. Often, it’s certain beliefs and fears that we hold that keep us from taking steps that might lead to growth.
I value gender, sexual, racial, class, disability and religious/spiritual identity.
As a family systems therapist I specialize in transitions across the life cycle. Learn more at www.JenniferKogan.com. Call/text me at 202-215-2790 to set up your free brief phone consultation or email me at JKogan@JenniferKogan.com.
