Transformation Through Connection

Around the Beltway Programs

Certified Imago Therapists in various locations in the Washington Metropolitan area and Baltimore offer these free programs. They provide an opportunity for therapists to further explore topics in Imago Therapy, as well as look at the integration of Imago Therapy with other theories. Additionally, therapists experience community support in attending these meetings.

MAIT Book Groups (Washington, D.C. and Baltimore)

In suburban Maryland and Virginia, book discussion groups are hosted by MAIT Certified Imago Therapists. These groups discuss books related to the theory of relationships and couples therapy. Exploring the integration of these ideas into Imago Relationship Therapy enriches the discussion. These groups are also free and enhance community among members.

Community Education Days

MAIT offers ½ day events which are both educational and social in nature. Centered on the theory and practice in Imago, these programs deepen knowledge, provide a way to meet or reconnect with colleagues, do soft marketing and are free. Attendees walk away with a "true feeling of community."

Professional Training Days

Three to four times per year MAIT sponsors training events with national and internationally known Imago Relationship Therapy presenters and trainers, including Maya Kollman, Wendy Patterson, Hedy Schleifer, and Tammy Nelson to name a few. These programs, lasting one to two days, offer MAIT members top quality seminars with CEUs.

Social Events

MAIT Social Events are planned to build community between members where you can make new connections and friendships!

    We will discuss:

    • What are the experiences that lead to the problem?

    • Antidepressants—a small dosage
    • Start/stop.  Faith in erection to return
    • Other ways that the partner can have an orgasm-takes convincing sometimes

    Suzanna's BioI’ve been an Imago therapist for 25 years.  I graduated from Lenox Hill Nursing School in 1965.  In order to help couples with their difficult life journey I became an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist in 2005.  Because sex is such an integral part of being a couple, and because, contrary to what we’re told, sex doesn’t return to a relationship simply because they each understand the other better, I think all relationship therapist should be versed and comfortable talking about sex. 

    RSVP or questions: / 703-304-7443 or
