Latin for image, your Imago is a composite picture of the people who most influenced you at an early age.  Imago Relationship Theory was developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.   Dr. Hendrix believes that you unconsciously choose a marriage partner who has positive and negative traits similar to your parents.  Imago Relationship Therapy can help you understand the hidden reasons you picked your partner and show you how to heal your relationship and yourself.

The Central DuPage Pastoral Counseling Center currently has one counselor who is trained in Imago.  Dr. Patricia Francis, O.P. uses Imago Relationship Therapy when working with couples and individuals.  She also trains parish and church lay leaders to teach Imago Relationship Therapy to couples within their congregations.
