Put the magic into your relationship.
Hedy Schleifer brings the crystallized wisdom she has gathered from her 40 years as a psychotherapist, her 25 years of work dedicated to couples, and her 52 years of personal work in the «living laboratory» of her own marriage to her husband, Yumi. She describes how to put the magic into your relationship by embracing three invisible connectors: the Space, the Bridge and the Encounter. It is a model that she names «Encounter-centered Couples Therapy.»
Hedy's work with couples is a synergetic integration of the philosophy of Martin Buber, the core values of the Judaic tradition, Imago Relationship Theory, Appreciative Inquiry, and the latest findings of Relational Neuro-Biology. She describes how couples «sculpt» each other's brain, and assist each other on the path to Relational Maturity. Hedy’s passion for teaching people how to create harmonious relationships and results-oriented connections inspires and empowers people to embrace the adventure of their life with renewed vigor and enthusiasm.
Hedy lives with her husband Yumi in Washington D.C. USA. They have two sons and 13 grandchildren.
