Imago Relationship Therapy was developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt. Their "Imago Dialogue" allows couples to move from blame to empathy. Your clients will experience so much growth using their 30 years of proven communication process. You can assist even your most frustrated couples to heal themselves and move toward a more "Conscious Relationship". I want to show you how - like Dr. Hendrix wishes - let's change the world one relationship at a time!
The IMAGO Way
Imago Therapy weaves together leading psychological theories and practical observations on the experience of love and relationships into an approach that is both compelling and easy to understand. This training will teach you a model for clients to move from "conflict to connection." Imago Therapy will allow you to help your clients restore the connection they once had with their partner and lead them to a new place of love and respect. You too will even benefit from the knowledge about your own relationship issues and enjoy personal healing in your own life.
Celebrities like Oprah and Alanis Morissette have endorsed IMAGO Therapy for the life changing effects it has had on their lives. I agree! My own IMAGO Clinical Certification has opened up worldwide opportunities in my practice. There is proven consumer interest in IMAGO Therapy. I not only use IMAGO in my practice daily, I also hold workshops internationally with couples who want to "Get the Love They Want". I want to grow the community of IMAGO Certified Therapists with you. Let's talk and figure out how IMAGO can work in your practice.
*Training will be held virtually if travel to FeatherHeart Ranch is not possible*
Each week will consist of 8 hour days where you will learn IMAGO Relationship Therapy and how to incorporate it in your practice. I will show you the IMAGO dialogue formula which is a proven model for deepening communication between your couples. You will be able to understand core relationship issues and help your clients grow with this knowledge. At the end of the 4 weeks you can present yourself as a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist (CIRT) and join a community of other therapists just like you.
To become a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist you will need to:

Visitors tell us there's something special about being here. We believe they feel what we felt the moment we walked on the land for the first time. We knew it offered the perfect healing environment and was ideal for connecting with nature, animals, ourselves, and others.
Nestled in the San Pasqual highlands near Ramona, the rolling hills that surround FeatherHeart Ranch present a sweeping valley view enclosed by the Cuyamaca mountain crest. Our property is walking distance to the San Clemente National Forest, an amazing natural preserve of 460,000 acres. Within minutes, you can experience the Pamo Valley and feel transported to a place that time forgot, where you can hike along the Orosco Ridge or Lower Santa Ysabel trails.
As you meander around FeatherHeart Ranch, there are many inviting alcoves to rest, relax, contemplate, or take in nature. During the workshops, you may find one of these spots is perfect for writing or holding a deep conversation. We always enjoy sitting on the porch and taking in the mountain view. Maybe you'll be drawn to spend a moment communicating with the horses or donkeys.
When you come here to nurture your relationship or deepen your own personal growth, the whole environment supports your journey.

Ramona is a San Diego gem just outside the big cities, where life moves just a tad bit slower than the fast lane. With 4 feed shops in town, Ramona is a horse-lover's paradise, where you might even see a horse and rider at a crosswalk in town off to ride one of the many trails maintained for riding.
Main street has plenty of shops, amenities and options for dining. There are places to stay in town and local Bed and Breakfast's cater to the tourist industry created by the up-and-coming wineries that are known for their blends of Spanish and Mediterranean grapes.
If you poke about, you'll discover a surprising number of local artisans and the town has a few art shops and exhibits.
Feel free to write and ask us if you are are looking for lodging or have special dietary needs when in town.
