Imago Therapy

Better Communication,
     Better Relationships

Happy middle aged couple in each others arms Contact Us Now! What Is Imago?

First envisioned in 1988 by New York Times best-selling author Dr. Harville Hendrix, Imago Therapy is a relatively new and effective form of relationship counseling that focuses on better communication.

Your Conflict Tells a Story

With Imago, the conflict isn’t the problem, it’s the solution.

The conflict is a message we send to ourselves, telling us that there is work to be done at an emotional level. There is a reason why the conflict upsets us so much, and if we listen carefully, the conflict will tell us that story.

A New Process

To resolve the conflicts and their underlying emotional causes, Imago provides a specific process for the safe exploration and communication of the deeper emotional content.

This process is called the Imago Dialogue, and it involves Mirroring, Validation, and Empathy. In short, it’s what lets you finally resolve conflicts and "MOVE Closer" again!
