What is Imago?

Imago is a type of relationship therapy which provides a unique opportunity for couples to learn how to use the issues that they have in their relationship for growth and healing. It offers communication tools that will allow both people to feel safe and connected as they talk about their problems, instead of entering the painful “power struggle”.

Who will benefit?

Couples who want to learn more effective ways to communicate Couples who are thinking about divorce Couples who have had affairs Anyone who wants to improve the quality of his or her relationship

What’s a power struggle?

It’s typically about RIGHT/WRONG, WIN/LOSE, YOU or ME thinking. These struggles create a disconnect with your partner. We have different ways that we disconnect: addiction, affairs, silence, anger and name calling. All this does is create more pain. Part of our problem is in how we may have been brought up. We don’t always know any better.

Do we come on a weekly basis?

You can have a session weekly or twice a month or once a month. It depends on the results you are looking for. Each session is ninety minutes long.
