Imago Therapy or Imago Relationship Therapy is a style of relationship therapy designed to help conflict within relationships become opportunities for healing and growth. The term "imago" is Latin for "image," and within the context of IRT, it refers to an "unconscious image of familiar love."
The concept of Imago as an image of familiar love suggests that your early relationships teach you something about love and about yourself. Through these early experiences, you develop a sense of an identity related to love, such as what love is and what you need to do in order to experience love from others and feel safe.
Imago Relationship Therapists are trained to provide support to couples and individuals dealing with issues such as conflict, ineffective communication, affairs, blended families, empty nest syndrome, addictions, sexuality, negative relationship patterns and much more. In addition, many Imago Therapists also work with individuals and families on a wide variety of issues including anxiety, depression, addictions and trauma.
Our highly trained therapists will provide a safe, unbiased environment to work with you and your partner on identifying specific behaviors that interfere in your relationship, preventing you from getting the love you want.
Using Imago tools, our therapists help remove the blame, shame and criticism common in negative relationship patterns and transform your relationship into one full of understanding and deep connection. We teach you to understand your relationship triggers and reactive behaviors that may stem from unmet needs and how to respond to your partner in a healthy way that benefits you both.
Working with all types of couples in a variety of stages of relationships, our focus is to help couples achieve a relationship based in mature love where each partner feels heard, understood and loved.
Our therapy sessions for couples typically range from 50 -110 minutes. However, this can vary depending on the Imago therapist and the needs of the couple.
You'll experience a safe and private environment to explore what's getting in the way of having healthy relationships and living the life you truly want. We will work with you to understand the patterns in your past and current relationships to identify areas of growth and healing, and help you envision and create a life where successful relationships can thrive.
Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma or more we can help you understand what's going on underneath the surface and work toward a healthier future.
The length of sessions vary with each Imago Therapist and the needs of the individual.
