Any couple can benefit from this workshop…

Do you want to get the love you want?

This internationally respected workshop has been attended by thousands of couples from over 30 countries around the world.

Tens of thousands of couples worldwide have attended the Imago Weekend Workshop for couples called “Getting the Love You Want” based on the best seller of the same name by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., who personally developed this workshop.

The workshop is a journey, and at the end you will leave with insights into how you can create a deeply satisfying and long-lasting relationship with your partner, as well as having learned skills that can help you achieve that.

Through exercises that you share with partner, you will explore some of your emotional history, and learn how that influences both the reason you chose your partner, and also the reason that you may both be drawn either now or later into a power-struggle.

Imago views the power-struggles that occur in relationships as a natural part of love, and also a great opportunity to deepen your love and make your relationship more satisfying. Within your disagreements with your partner lie important clues about how you can learn to transform your love into something even richer, as long as you can discuss these issues in a way which feels comfortable, positive and safe.

Sometimes we hear from couples who are concerned about revealing personal information to others. That’s why we set the workshop up so that if you wish you can do all your personal work privately with your partner, and just share with the group if you wish. We’ve also learned over the years that one of the most inspiring elements of the workshop is to see other couples going through the Imago processes during demonstrations and to hear their stories.

By the end of the workshop most couples leave feeling far more positive about their relationship.  Couples leave with new skills and understanding that can they can continue to use to facilitate a life full of caring and romance*.

Have you heard about IMAGO Therapy?

I recently completed an intensive training program in Imago Therapy where I earned the additional credential of CERTIFIED IMAGO WORKSHOP PRESENTER.  In addition, I am a CERTIFIED ADVANCED IMAGO THERAPIST.  Imago Therapy is an extremely powerful and effective therapeutic approach.  Having been a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist for about 25 years as well as a licensed psychologist I can truly say that Imago Therapy works in a strategic, efficient and helpful manner that can provide hope and longevity for couples!  I have already heard comments from my patients such as “You just saved our marriage [using Imago Therapy]”.   Imago Relationship therapy is my main therapeutic approach for couples counseling.  If you want the opportunity to learn to communicate better and to deepen your connection with your relationship partner you should explore Imago Relationship Therapy with me.  Imago Relationship Therapy was developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., in partnership with his wife, Helen Lakelly Hunt, Ph.D., and is a unique therapeutic healing process designed for couples.
