Bonnie Brinkman, MA

Bonnie Brinkman, MA, trained and certified by Harville Hendrix, PhD, the founder of Imago Relationship Therapy, has over 20 years of experience coaching couples.  She has achieved advanced Imago clinician status and is an active member of Imago Relationships International.

In addition to working with couples in private sessions, Bonnie presents “Getting the Love You Want”, an Imago educational workshop for couples.  She has led over 100 of these weekend workshops in Arizona, as well as in Portland, Oregon and the Omega Institute in New York.  Bonnie believes that when a couple changes their relationship for the better, they also change the world - since all our lives are made up of relationship networks.

Bonnie’s skillful teaching has also been utilized by small businesses and non-profit organizations.  She has seen that Imago concepts and tools can help people who work together repair, nourish, and empower their relationships.  

When not coaching or teaching relationship skills, Bonnie enjoys traveling and being out in nature.  After many years of living in Arizona, she cherishes spending time with her large extended family.  Bonnie also enjoys exploring her native city of Cincinnati and is a diehard Cincinnati Reds fan.

"Your presentation really moved me. As a Four, I am challenged at the work place (with 9s, 8s and 7s primarily) and my son is a 7 and daughter a 6 - additional challenges. You offered so many excellent tools on communicating with each style. I am learning to relax in others' different filters - understanding my own - not taking myself personally." - Ariana
