IMAGO Relationship Therapy
The "Imago Relationships North America" home page provides useful information and guidance for enriching your relationship.

Imago is Latin for “image”. It explains the chemistry of attraction, why it fades, why we argue and fight and repeat the same frustrating pattern over and over again. Imago Therapy provides a completely different understanding of your relationship conflicts, as well as a very effective array of tools for reconnecting. This reconnection is what Imago Therapy is all about. When you fell in love, you felt connected. You likely felt a sense of wholeness, like the other person somehow completed you. This phase of the relationship is known as “romantic love”. It feels amazing, positive, hopeful and delicious. In romantic love, you’re happy together and cannot imagine life without this person. After a while, couples habituate to the chemistry and often begin to feel annoyed, and eventually hurt and deeply disappointed at the overwhelming loss of “love”. What happened? Who changed? One asks “Who ARE you and what did you do with the person I fell in love with”? This phase of love is known as “the power struggle”, and it can be devastatingly painful. Imago Therapy will show you how to use conflict to actually experience deep connection again, heal your relationship, your past hurts, and move you both into a much more rewarding and conscious love. Imago Therapy is about helping you heal and live in a connected relationship, without defensiveness. It's real and lasting love.

As an Imago Therapist, I help you articulate your frustrations, and I help your partner hear them without defensiveness. I also help you both understand something extremely important about yourself and your partner, so that a very powerful shift in consciousness can occur. My goal is for you to live and love again in a positive, safe and rewarding relationship.
