Robin Newman, LCSW
Imago Relationship Therapist
I’m also an adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Social Work at Adelphi University and contributing therapist to Ladies Home Journal Magazine, “Can This Marriage Be Saved?” and “Parenting Special Needs, Relationship Rescue”.
I work with couples, families and individuals. I am successful in guiding my patients through anxiety, depression, self-esteem challenges, addictions, family conflicts along with their dynamics and couples and their conflicts.
I work with couples who have had affairs, addictions and have lost their connection to one another. The key for me is always in the patient who has the courage to be open to experiencing they’re healing. We all have childhood wounds that can hold us back from creating safe and satisfying relationships. It is a privilege and a blessing to be invited into the lives of others and assist them in having a more productive and healed life.
One of my specialties is my clinical training in Imago Relationship Therapy. Imago Relationship Therapy is a technique that was developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and his wife, Dr. Helen Kelly LaHunt. They are the co-writers of “Getting the Love You Want”, Keeping the Love You Have”. Their books have helped couples for over 30 years.
Imago Relationship Therapy will help you to develop tools for communicating about difficult issues. It will assist you in developing compassion and empathy for yourself and your partner.
You can use relationship challenges to create growth and healing. Most importantly, to create the relationship that you have always wanted.
Imago can be particularly helpful in family conflicts as well. Many companies have used Imago Relationship Therapy along with the assistance of a Certified Facilitator to communicate in a way where both parties are heard and understood.
Relationships are not a problem to be solved. They are a journey and an adventure to be embraced. A gift to be unwrapped, a mystery to be understood and a secret to be uncovered. Imago Relationship Therapy teaches you to work through conflict in a way that will allow your relationship to flourish and expand!
