I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and received my Ed.S degree many moons ago from Seton Hall University. It was a wonderful program with cutting-edge techniques and research in the field. But, after several years of practice, I wanted something more tangible to give to my clients. That’s when I discovered Imago Relationship Therapy. I’ve always been the type of therapist who focused more on the solution rather than the problem. "Let’s get it done." Imago fit the bill for me. It is a solution- focused and dynamic model of therapy that helps couples dramatically improve their relationship.
This transformational method of therapy was developed 25 years ago by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt. It is still going strong. Dr. Hendrix is a leading expert in the field and has been featured numerous times on the Oprah Winfrey show. He has written many best selling books on the subject including: “Getting the Love You Want,” “Keeping the Love You Have,” and “Making Marriage Simple."
Imago is an international organization dedicated to helping couples dramatically improve their relationship. Their mission is to "transform the world one relationship at a time." Imago Therapy provides couples with a safe and effective way of relating to each other with more honesty and understanding as they help each other grow into greater wholeness and integrity.
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I was drawn to this profession because I sensed a need for compassion and understanding for people who are hurting and confused. I wanted to guide people back to their own greatness and the rich resources they have within them. That's why I am so drawn to the Solution-Focused model of therapy. It focuses more on our strengths than our limitations. For more information on this topic click this link to my article "Sifting Through the Dross"
