About your Presenters
Meet Rabbi Pinney and Helana Herman
Our Story: Turning Marital Disagreement into Healing. In 1999, we made a pivotal decision to take our relationship to the next level by enrolling in the dynamic IMAGO program. Little did we know that this choice would forever transform our relationship.
IMAGO gave us an extraordinary gift—the ability to navigate conflicts and use them as stepping stones for growth. Through IMAGO's powerful tools, we discovered how to truly listen to each other, opening up new avenues of understanding.
As we practiced and honed these skills, we witnessed the walls between us crumble. The profound benefits of IMAGO's approach to communication and connection became our reality.
Inspired by our own journey, we became certified IMAGO Educators in 2010. Since then, we have had the privilege of sharing these transformative methods with countless couples seeking to deepen their connection and fortify their marriages.
Our passion for helping couples transform marital disagreement into healing has only grown over the years. We are dedicated to guiding others on the path where conflicts become catalysts for growth and love.
Join us on this incredible journey as we empower you to turn your own marital disagreements into moments of healing, growth, and lasting love. Together, let's create the relationship you've always dreamed of.
