G. Michael Scott, LMFT
Certified Imago Relationship Therapist
Michael has been in private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist since 1985. After licensure, he began to pursue specialized training in many areas of clinical practice, including the addiction field, self psychology, depression and anxiety, and eventually was drawn to relationship therapy. Of all the main models of relational work, he finds Imago Relationship Therapy the most comprehensive and pragmatic. The model rests on solid theory and is continually integrating new research, knowledge and insight. In addition Imago translates into skills and strengths that make committed partnership, especially in dealing with pain and vulnerability, much easier to navigate. He appreciates also that Imago is fundamentally a positive approach to the restoration of joy and aliveness in our relationships in general, and in our committed partnerships in particular.
After being certified as an Imago Relationship Therapist in 2002, he desired to become certified as a Getting the Love You Want workshop presenter. He was certified in early 2010 and presents the workshop in San Diego County along with colleagues Maria Monroe, MFT and Patty Mangini, PhD. Michael is a creative person, especially in the area of film making. His films celebrate and honor relationships of all kinds, and the workshops integrate film clips to illustrate relational dynamics and complex theoretical concepts. He is warm and smart in his approach while being direct and clear as well. Michael has been in a committed partnership for 27 years and brings a wide range of experience and expertise to this passionate work of living in intimate relationship while becoming the best version of yourself in the world.
