Transformation Through Connection

What is Mid-Atlantic Association for Imago Relationship & Therapists?

The Mid-Atlantic Association for Imago & Relationship Therapists (MAIT), founded in 1995, includes therapists from Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, Delaware and West Virginia. Certified Imago Relationship Therapists and those in training to be certified, may hold full membership. Associate Membership extends to area therapists interested in learning more about Imago. As a regional association, MAIT maintains active involvement with Imago Relationships International, a non-profit organization whose mission is to "change the world . . . one relationship at a time."

Who We Are

MAIT aspires to be a primary association of relationship therapists and facilitators in the Mid-Atlantic region. We seek to expand and deepen our skills at helping relationships develop conscious, vital and joyful connections in which each individual can thrive. We are committed to helping the public access the services of our skilled and caring members.

Our Mission

  1. We are an open, welcoming and warm community whose core values of hospitality, inclusivity, diversity, equity, and dialogical relationships inform everything we do when we gather to learn, govern and work together.
  2. We provide outstanding professional continuing education on a wide range of relationship issues.
  3. We are rooted in Imago Relationship Therapy (IRT) and committed to being part of its evolution, integration and synthesis.
  4. We are inclusive and invite clinicians using other relational models to join the Association and actively participate in the creation of best practices and the charting of new and integrated frontiers in relationship work.
  5. We have fun! We sponsor social gatherings to help connect our personal, professional and familial lives. We have learned that playing and celebrating together expands our own clinical and relationship-building skills
