About Imago Relationship Therapy


Was developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix about thirty years ago in response to a growing need for marriage therapy that actually worked and help change the way couples communicate. No one had looked at marriage needs and what was going on in the relationship after the commitment was developed which was where relationships where failing. He found that it was all because of unsafe,unclear and reactive communication, which caused negativity, reactivity and constant disagreements that never got resolved. He developed a system of couples talkng to each other instead of the therapist and using three pieces-MIRRORING-VALIDATION-EMPATHY to connect the couple in away they had not before-there is an example video on my website for you to enjoy and much more information about this wonderful therapy which i have trained in and used for the last ten years and use in my marriage daily.

MISSION STATEMENT

Why have a website about relationships and recovery?. I started working in the field of Mental Health and Substance Abuse thirty years ago. When i examined the causes of addiction and mental health, what kept coming into awareness was the inability to communicate and participate in healthy relationships. Also that the recovery and treatment mostly involves learning how to grow and change in relationships. After becoming sober or stable mentally recovery is about learning to love in relationships. What i specialize in and have years of training in is getting people sober or their mental health stable through support and counseling. Then teaching and showing them how to change the way they communicate in relationships.

          Thank you for visiting my new website! I think you will find it interesting and helpful to help educate you on the process of rebuilding your relationships. You will also find a great deal of help with recovery and addiction resources. I have worked for thirty years with men and women with all types of dependence and behaviors that lead to abuse of alcohol,drugs. These exits need to be addressed to begin to create healthy relationships.
