Couples Therapy

My approach to couples therapy combines the approaches of best-selling authors and family
therapists Harville Hendrix and Terrence Real. Hendrix is the founder of Imago Relationship Therapy and the author of "Getting the Love You Want." Imago Relationship Therapy addresses the root causes of relationship problems and provides a simple and practical approach to creating better relationships. Real coined the term “Relational Recovery” to define the healing process that must take place in our relationships.

"Relational Recovery provides men and women the insight and tools to recover the state of wholeness and connectedness that is each person's birthright. Each individual comes onto

this planet innately wired for authenticity and closeness. The voices of girls and the hearts of

boys are damaged from the traditional roles of manhood and womanhood. We live in an anti-

relational, vulnerability-averse culture. Our aim is to help each person move beyond

traditional gender scripts so that women reclaim power and men reclaim openheartedness."
