What is Imago Therapy?
Imago Relationship Therapy was developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., and is a systematic theory of marriage and marital/relationship therapy that powerfully synthesizes major aspects of depth psychology, object relations, systems theory, behavioral and Gestalt psychology, and humanistic-existential theory.  It extends the understanding of unconscious meaning, self-organization and relational dynamics into a systematic theory of people in committed relationships.  IRT is a pragmatic therapy that will give you effective tools to work with clients and to empower them on their journey of healing and reclaiming wholeness.  Couples can learn specific skills to assist each other in healing childhood wounds that affect present-day relationships, to create emotional safety and intimacy in their relationship, to move from reactivity to intentionality, and to renew the love, the passion, and the possibility of their life together.
