Heal and Grow


Are you visiting this site hoping to enhance your marriage or repair a troubled relationship? If so, be assured, you are not alone. All intimate relationships have conflict and all committed partnerships go through struggle. Conflict is a natural, inevitable, even valuable part of the growth and development of a committed love relationship. Your hopes for real change and lasting love can be realized: There is a new way to love - a way to heal the pain, repair rupture and transform relationship troubles into the secure and passionate connection we all desire with our partner.

My name is Laura Jean Bell and I am a Marriage Therapist and Couple Counselor available to help you and your partner find your way and do just that. As an Imago Relationship Therapist, I come to you with a compassionate and equitable perspective for understanding intimate love partnership and a user-friendly way of navigating through the struggles to connect. Imago Relationship Therapy is a new way to love.

I am a Couple Therapist - I approach psychotherapy from the relational perspective, supporting the individuals in the partnership by way of the partnership, itself. For some, this is a radical approach. Helping couples understand their two person system and helping partners stretch into meeting the needs of the relationship - so that the space between them becomes secure and connecting - is uniquely pivotal for true relationship change and paradoxically powerful for each partner's individual healing and personal growth.

Imago is a relational theory and practice that gives couples and individuals an insightful understanding of their relationship troubles and a roadmap for practical change and real transformation that is compassionate and makes sense. A seasoned therapist with over 30 years experience, I incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities in helping partners connect, heal and grow. I have specialized training in Couple Therapy and my Private Practice is devoted to couples and Couple Counseling.

Imago Relationship Therapy is the core model that grounds my work. Additionally, I incorporate Internal Family Systems Therapy, PACT Couple Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy in my Couple Counseling Practice. With Imago, IFS, PACT and EFT, I offer you and your partner a more mindfully aware, mutually respectful and empathic path to a new way to love.
