Dr. Rebekah Montgomery is a clinical psychologist in Washington DC specializing in couples therapy, premarital counseling, and relationship issues. Though the focus of her practice is currently on couples therapy, she also has expertise in trauma, grief, anxiety, and depression. She completed training at Harvard Medical School and Boston University Medical School among other institutions.
For couples, Dr. Montgomery offers private couples therapy sessions, private pre-marital counseling, as well as one day pre-marital group workshops. In pre-marital counseling, Dr. Montgomery offers couples the education, skills, and a safe space to have important conversations about the critical pieces of building a life together. Engagement is a special time when couples celebrate their love and commitment to each other, but while all couples want a happy fulfilling marriage, no one is born knowing how to be married. Most individuals have achieved success in the important areas of their lives from education, knowledge, hard work, and practice, and marriage is no different. Pre-marital counseling is an opportunity for couples to prepare for the rewarding and challenging experience of marriage.
Dr. Montgomery has advanced training in a number of treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, interpersonal, emotion focused, and mindfulness and acceptance based interventions. She is interactive, direct, and solution-focused, offering support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. With compassion and understanding, she works with clients to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
