Washingtonian Names Rebecca Sears ‘Top Therapist’
When Rebecca Sears first heard that Washingtonian Magazine just named her one of the top marriage and family therapists in the area, she initially thought: “Who – me?” But quickly she identified the tribute as an affirmation of Imago Relationship Therapy as a whole.“It’s an honor and a validation of the type of work we’re doing,” Sears said. Much more than me, it’s a reaction to the power of Imago and relational work. People do respond to this work – it’s inspirational and empowering because there are ripple effects, not just to our clients, but to our own families, friends, and communities.”
Sears was named one of 13 top marriage and family therapists in Washingtonian Magazine’s annual “Best Of” issue in July. The editors sent invitations to 1,500 mental health professionals in the area asking them to participate in an online survey, and received responses from nearly 800 participants. “Knowing it’s the people I trained, and professionals I’ve worked with, who voted for me is so encouraging. I aspire to be as good as my own trainers, and it goes on and on,” Sears said.
