“Imago” is a Latin word that means Image. As Imago therapist we see this Image as an UNCONSCIOUS collage of all the people who helped raised us, the good, bad and ugly. Our Imago drives us to be attracted to familiar love, which often times initially feels healing and connected. However, once commitment, longevity or monogamy sets in, often times this same relationship might leave us feeling wounding and disconnected. Imago Relationship Counseling is a unique philosophy and tool set about a different way to be in relationship with EVERYONE in your life.
Imago draws from the 3 main modalities of psychology; thinking, feeling and behaving.
Imago facilitates uncovering the cognitive distortions, unconscious early decisions and early imprinted models of relationships that might derail how we think about relationships. Effective communication about the feelings that are elicited in relationships allow for these feelings to be heard, validated and further explored. What actions we take and behaviors we engage in with people in our lives is explored to determine if it gets us or stops us from getting what we want in the relationship.
