How to Find the Best Marriage Counseling For Your Marriage
If you want marriage counseling that will actually work and not make things worse, think about attending a marriage intensive or marriage retreat.
After working for over a decade in the field of marriage counseling, we noticed that couples wanting to fix their marriage can’t possibly achieve the total transformation that they want in once a week 50-90 minute sessions. By the time you sit down and talk with each other and with the therapist, your time is up.
That’s why, here at The Marriage Restoration Project, we only see couples in a 2 day marriage intensive format for their marriage counseling needs.
This intensive marriage counseling format works, and that’s why Rabbi and Rivka Slatkin, Baltimore natives, have over 10 years’ of real marriage retreat reviews and testimonials from couples all over Baltimore, New York, and the rest of the globe, after having gone through successful marriage counseling that worked to fix their marriage.
It’s easy to choose a couples counselor nearest you, one that takes your insurance, and is closest to your zipcode. Your marriage is the most previous relationship that you have so choosing a couples counselor solely based on your insurance and your zipcode does not serve you and your partner well.
You will likely find that the best rated relationship therapists are out of network, and not covered by your insurance and that’s why it’s important for you to be open to finding the best- even if you have to take your therapy and do it online (our marriage intensives are often online). In most cases you can send your insurance the bills and request that they consider covering the costs, which sometimes helps offset the cost. To be clear though, divorce is much more expensive both financially and emotionally than therapy. It’s worth it to save your marriage.
Our Counseling Services & Retreat Packages

Remember, a degree in social work, psychology, or sociology does not qualify someone as a specialized couples counselor or marriage therapist. You would not want your family physician to perform brain surgery, just as you should not let someone without experience and qualifications lead you and your partner in counseling.
Lucky for you, we have an experienced NYC marriage counselor and Imago therapist right around the corner on 5th Avenue. Contact us to join a marriage weekend workshop, make reservations for a couples retreat, or get help bringing it up with your partner or spouse.

Can you really trust your marriage counselor?
What You Should Know Before You Decide to Work with a Marriage Counselor.
Most general therapists and counselors are not equipped to handle the dynamic of working with two people in a room. Conflict escalates quickly if not headed off skillfully, and therapy sessions like that can do more damage than good. That’s because traumatic counseling sessions may uncover old wounds and increase communication barriers rather than promote healing. Some counselors even encourage divorce, for lack of a better solution.
You are coming in to make your marriage better, restore your romantic relationship, or to save it in general. A professional should never tell you that there is no hope for your marriage if both parties want to save it.
There are hundreds of licensed MFT couples therapists in NYC, and we hope you give us a chance to help you save your relationship.
If your goal is to stay together, save your marriage, and fix your relationship problems, our 2 day marriage retreat with intensive therapy should be your next step toward marriage restoration. We are located in Midtown Manhattan on 5th Ave in New York City, New York. We provide counseling for couples across the greater NYC metropolitan area including lower Manhattan, East Village, Hell’s Kitchen, Tribeca, Lenox Hill, Upper West Side, Upper East Side, and The Bronx. Contact us online or call (914) 417-9658 now to get started.

What Happens During the 2 Day Intensive Retreat:
My name is Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Certified Imago Relationships Therapist (Advanced Clinician). I’ve put together a tried and true formula for you so that that you can feel optimistic and hopeful again about enjoying a marriage that is respectful, supportive, and healthy. It would be a privilege to work with you and support you in effectively bringing back clarity and love into your relationship.
If you’re experiencing difficulties in your marriage, you NEED to have an intensive experience in order to create a breakthrough for your relationship.
And it is also crucial to have followup to integrate what you’ve learned so that your results will be long lasting- which is what you want!
Unlike a marriage workshop where you participate in a group setting with other couples, the retreat will give the privacy you need to deal with some of the most painful and personal issues you are facing in your relationship.
The Marriage Restoration Retreat is two full days of marital therapy in my Baltimore office, plus 8 followup sessions in person or on Skype. If you’re in crisis, the first thing that you are looking for is the hope that your relationship can be better. Weekly sessions, which are normally only 50 minutes with other therapists, will often take a while to get you to a better place, and that’s provided that you have the stamina and resources to stick it out!
Couples leave our 2 Day Retreat with newfound hope for their relationship, an understanding of what went wrong, and new skills to move forward.
Filled with momentum and new commitment to your relationship, you’ve accomplished what would take in 6 months of therapy. All the resistance is gone and now you can do the real work to make your marriage wonderful in our 8 followup sessions.
Dr. Harville Recommending Rabbi Shlomo
Here’s What Dr. Harville Hendrix, Founder of Imago Relationship Therapy, has to say about Rabbi Shlomo 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.
Dear Rabbi Shlomo
We wanted to express our deep appreciation for your private couples retreat.
Your gentle nature and subtle guidance provided a safe environment to share our experiences, concerns and hopes for our relationship. During the retreat both myself and my husband were able to gain a better understanding of our thoughts and feelings and how to channel them to a deeper level of engagement in our relationship.
Your retreat provided us with the tools for calm and effective communication with an emphasis on acts of kindness and connection. The opportunity to feel heard by our spouse, and to observe the impact that feeling heard had on our spouse, was the greatest gift. Through the two days of training we were impressed with how focused and positive you kept the discussions even as we shared painful or disappointing scenarios. At no time was blaming or hurting allowed and you facilitated a positive energy through out. My husband shared how surprised he was with how the time flew by! We left with the hope and reassurance that the deep relationship we both envisioned would be attainable especially if we diligently apply the techniques that you shared. We strongly recommend your program and encourage couples not only to consider this if they are in crisis but if they would like to re-imagine and deepen their current relationship.
Thank you again for the greatest gift of all. We feel blessed to have met you.
John and Emily, NYC, NY
