About DCTC Founder, Jen Kogan

Jen Kogan, LICSW, is an individual, couple and family therapist, coach, writer and community builder. She offers evidence based compassion focused psychotherapy/consultation for clients and psychotherapists.

Jen launched DCTherapistConnect (then known as DCTherapistMoms) in 2008. Inspiration for the group came during Jen’s search for a community of support while balancing the everyday demands of parenting while nurturing her private practice.

In addition to DCTherapistConnect, her private practice and writing/editing, Jen works as a coach with a small number of therapists eager to hone their practice management skills while attracting new clients. Coaching clients enjoy Jen’s warm, compassionate non-judgmental style, joyful sense of humor and the wisdom acquired during her more than twenty years of clinical experience.

In addition to DCTC, Jen’s professional memberships include the National Association of Social Workers, the Greater Washington Society for Clinical Social Work,  the Parent Encouragement Program (PEP) and the Jung Society of Washington.
