Couples Therapy/Imago Relationship Therapy
Imago Relationship Therapy is based on the work of Harville Hendrix PhD, from the best selling book, "Getting the Love You Want." Imago Relationship Therapy addresses the emotional injuries we received in childhood that we bring to our adult relationships. We believe that it is our chosen partner's responsibility to attend to those needs that were not met in childhood. We learn soon after the honeymoon phase that our partners disappoint us, resulting in the deterioration of the relationship. Imago Relationship Therapy attends to restoring the relationship through a safe and structured dialogue, which enhances connection. Couple begin to discover that they are better able to communicate their needs while attending to and nurturing the relationship.
