About The Marriage Restoration Project, Founders, and our Amazing Team of Couples Therapists
Do you struggle with your marriage- believing that your relationship can be so much more fulfilling than it currently is?
Do you wish that your partner would be able to deeply HEAR and listen to your hopes and dreams and needs?
Who would have thought that being listened to and cared for would be worth more to you than all of the gifts in the world?
How do you go from where you are now – a marriage that is flat-lined and dull – to a marriage that is healthy and vibrant?
You are here because you want to achieve a deep connection again.
You’re committed to your relationship, you wish you could restore the love you once had, and you’ll do anything possible to get you there.
We help couples find new hope for their relationship & create a happier, deeper connection in 2 days.
You might be wondering how a couple like you could have once been madly in love and are now experiencing problems even over the smallest of things!??
Rabbi Shlomo and his wife Rivka, were once that couple over 19 years ago, and due to the power and efficacy of Imago therapy, they realized how to get that love back and learn how to reconnect deeply so that they wouldn’t keep fighting over the smallest of things.
Being so inspired from their own work with Imago Therapy, they went on to become trainers in Imago and marriage counseling professionals.
If you’ve never worked with an Imago therapist, or are concerned about finding the right therapist that would be a good match for both you and your spouse, know that you are in the right place.
The structure that Imago therapy provides ensures that both the husband and wife always feel a sense of safety- regardless of the issues that are being raised.
Couples are often amazed with their renewed feelings of hope and connection that they feel even after one session of working with Rabbi Slatkin.
“Any couple interested in restoring their marriage and sustaining it will be blessed if they follow the logical and clear steps and processes described by Rabbi Slatkin, MS, LCPC in the Marriage Restoration Project.” – Dr. Harville Hendrix
A gifted teacher who has lectured throughout the world, Shlomo Slatkin edited and co-authored the Jewish version of Couplehood as a Spiritual Path , a curriculum for synagogues based on Imago Relationship Therapy and Dr. Harville Hendrix’s Getting the Love You Want.
He is also the author of The Five Step Action Plan to a Happy & Healthy Marriage, as well as numerous published articles on relationships.
A graduate of Loyola College in Maryland, Shlomo Slatkin holds a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology, with additional psychotherapy training at the Imago Relationship Institute. He received his undergraduate training at the George Washington University and Oxford University and holds a B.A in Middle Eastern Studies. In addition, he studied in prestigious Rabbinical seminaries in Israel and the United States, culminating in ordination.
Shlomo Slatkin is a clinical member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association, Imago Relationships International, and the Mid-Atlantic Association of Imago Therapists.
20 years ago, Imago therapy saved our marriage. Today we practice Imago & No Blame, No Shame marriage retreats, helping couples find new hope for their relationship; creating a happier, deeper connection in 2 days.
Is your marriage even fixable at this point?
We believe that you picked your partner for a reason and that conflict is growth trying to happen. You married the RIGHT person not the WRONG person, and we have shown 100s of couples just like you- for over a decade now- how this is factually true!
We help people that are committed to doing whatever it takes to fixing their most important relationship – their marriage- through our comprehensive solutions that fix marriage problems.
And if you’re an adult child of divorce, like Rivka is, it’s especially for children like you that our website was created for! Children that have seen first-hand the effects that divorce can have. Adult children that may need to work extra hard to find and follow the best relationship advice out there, in order to enjoy a successful marriage and to ensure that your love story lasts forever, since you did not grow up in a home where a good marriage was modeled for you.
This is the place
Here’s what we do: We offer comprehensive solutions that fix marriage problems. Every program that we offer, whether it be our 2 Day Marriage Restoration Retreat, or our group Getting the Love You Want workshop, or online Marriage School was carefully crafted over several years based on our analysis of what gives couples the ultimate solution that they desire a changed marriage for life. Everything that we offer works, it just takes commitment to follow our recommendations.
Here’s what we believe: We know what it feels like to be disconnected and in pain and so we want to help transform the world one couple at a time
Here’s how we got started: The Marriage Restoration Project was born from the desire to help keep couples together and happy and to minimize the devastating effects that divorce can have on families and children.
Here’s some stories of couples we’ve worked with: There are so many wonderful stories and testimonials from couples that we receive regularly, here is a link to read just some: https://themarriagerestorationproject.com/marriage-success-stories/

We completed the 2-day intensive course with David on Monday and Tuesday this week. The results are extremely good so far. Our positive interactions have increased and negative interactions have decreased. The tension between us has gone way down and now we are enjoying being with each other. We made some real breakthroughs individually and as a couple, and learned techniques for communication that generate understanding and help prevent us from arguing.
I am excited to continue this work through our marriage together and improve our relationship every day.
David carefully and confidently blazed a trail for us to escape the dark jungle we were in. It was well worth the investment we made because it helped us start a brand new relationship to replace the old one that was failing. Our biggest difficulty had been letting go of past hurts, and the act of starting a new relationship gave us the opportunity to do that.
I am glad to have the follow up sessions built-in knowing we will have David’s support to stay on track with maintaining a happy home.
