For the last 35 years Janet Congo has dedicated herself to helping married couples “Keep the WOW in their VOW!” ….. Helping couples Welcome Other’s World!

Janet Congo challenges couples to make their marriage big enough for two……. two people, two perspectives, two preferences, two interests, two backgrounds, and two cultures. In the counseling office she provides an opportunity for you to speak your truth and to welcome your spouse’s truth. She will provide a framework for differences and disagreements so that conflict stops being a threat to your relationship. She will help you get beyond the stuck places. The result…you will embrace each other as friends and lovers.
