Rebecca Sears, MDiv, LPC

Rebecca Sears has been in practice as a pastoral psychotherapist since 1986. As a Clinical Instructor with the Institute for Imago Relationship therapy, she is now training clinicians and other professionals in Imago Relationship Therapy.

Deeply rooted in the healing and growth potential of Imago Relationship Therapy, Rebecca is passionate about empowering clinicians and teaching the fine art of becoming a skilled couples’ therapist. Her dedication to this transformative relationship work has taken her from being a Workshop Presenter, trainer and psychotherapist here in the Washington area, to a new focused commitment to bring this work to Russia where she and Dr. Carl Siegel have been presenting Imago theory since 2001.

In 2006 she presented the first “Getting The Love You Want” couples workshop in St. Petersburg, Russia and began Russia’s first Basic Clinical Training in Imago Therapy. Her keen ability to teach the theory, encourage and coach therapists into a deeper clinical competence and integrate the deeply spiritual component of Imago, will bring a new level of meaning to your personal and professional work-life.


Rebecca continues a practice dedicated to helping couples restore safety and connection in their relationships and marriages.


She is ordained by Church of the Saviour in Washington DC, and is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the District of Columbia, a Fellow in the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, and a past President of the Mid-Atlantic Association of Imago Therapists.


Rebecca is a Senior Faculty Member of the Imago International Institute and and a Top Rated Couples Therapist by Washingtonian Magazine.
