Harville is a couple’s therapist with more than 40 years’ experience as an educator, clinical trainer and lecturer whose work has been on Oprah 17 times.
They also are co-creators of Imago Relationship Theory & Therapy, which has spread globally through Imago Relationships International, an organization that has trained over 2,500 therapists in over 62 countries.
In addition to Helen’s partnership with her husband in the co- creation of Imago, she is sole author of Faith and Feminism and And the Spirit Moved Them. She was installed in the Women’s Hall of Fame for her leadership in the global women’s movement.
Harville and Helen believe that how we interact with each other, in all contexts – family, workplace, schools etc. – is the key to our emotional, physical and economic well-being and to the well-being of our children and society. Together, they are committed to the transformation of relationships and to the evolution of a relational culture. To that end, they co-created, with other relational therapists, scientists, and business professionals, a non-profit organization called Quantum Connections that contributes to the creation of a relational culture through the distribution of new insights from the relational sciences, and through Safe Conversations® – a global social movement with the goal of teaching Dialogue to 3.2 billion persons in the next 30 years to help usher in a new, relational civilization.
Helen and Harville have been married for over 40 years, have six children, eight grandchildren and reside in Dallas, Texas and NYC.
