Austin Imago Couples Therapy

Imago Therapists in Austin, Texas

    Imago Couples Therapy was developed by Harville Hendrix, author of "Getting the Love You Want". This therapy format is based on the idea that good communication starts when each person in the relationship feels heard and respected.

    We will be working together in a structured format to help you both have the opportunity to share your experiences and feel heard without shame, blame or criticism.

    The Safe Conversation Dialogue creates a secure space where you can work on developing the ability to truly listen to each other and come from a place where both of you have a better understanding of your experiences and ways of thinking. Structure and safety help to create connection.

Beth Castellow, IRT, LCSW-S

I believe we all have the capacity to achieve loving, fulfilling relationships, but sometimes we get in our own way. Whether you are stuck in old patterns, afraid to try something new, uncomfortable in your own skin, or simply frustrated with the cards you’ve been dealt, please allow me to assist you on your journey to your full potential, and most rewarding relationships.

By focusing on ​practical and helpful communication tools, Imago supports you in creating a more satisfying relationship. You can understand what contributes to struggles that tend to show up in your relationship. As you grow your capacity to move away from reactivity, you're able to be more curious.
