About Imago Relationship therapy

Imago Relationship therapy is based on a theory by Dr. Harville Hendrix. Drawing on a variety of disciplines - including behavioral science, depth psychology, cognitive therapy, and Gestalt therapy - the theory holds that childhood experiences inform partner selection and relationship expectations in later life. These unconscious images both attract us to our partners, and become the root of the inevitable power struggles found in all committed relationships.

The theory makes way for the practice of the Imago dialogue - a consistent, safe, and dynamic framework for working through any issue a couple may face: finances, parenting, infidelity, illness, divorce, etc. Together you will learn the dialogue and use it to unpack whatever unique circumstance has brought you to treatment. Our work will move you toward a conscious relationship in which you both will become aware of your early wounds, and how your partnered relationship can be the source of true healing. The result can be a relationship that is deeper and more connected than you thought possible.
