The Real ImhoffsCHANGED LIVES WHO ARE CHANGING LIVES
We are Chad and Angela Imhoff and we live in Northwest Arkansas. We are in the business of helping others in any way that we can. We met in graduate school in 2010 while pursuing our master’s degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy.
Chad is a marriage and family therapist and the Clinical Director at The Joshua Center. He is also a certified Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) Supervisor. Angela is a certified life coach and the ministry leader of Celebrate Recovery, a faith-based 12-step program.
We use the experiences from our own stories to inform the work we do with others. Working with couples, families and individuals in both clinical and community settings, we walk alongside people, helping them overcome the hardships of life.
We are also inspired to train, equip and mentor those who pursue a similar mission of helping people live healthier lives.
Our past inspires us to help others
Our stories aren’t easy, polished, or shiny — quite the opposite, actually. We are messy, tarnished, and broken. Our mistakes have paved the way for us to be who we are today. On this journey of healing, we have met countless people who have found themselves in similar places: Broken marriages. Poor choices. Impossible consequences. We’ve met people like us, who have justifiable reasons to be disqualified from a good life. They motivate us to be vulnerable. They challenge us to show courage. They inspire our efforts to share healing and cultivate hope.
We live in a culture that is brutal toward people who make mistakes. Moral failures are not forgiven easily, and social media can be used as an agent of shaming and punishment. People are left not only in the wake of their choices and the natural consequences that life usually provides, but they are also scrutinized to a point of hopelessness, believing they can never be restored. We want to change that.
Our goal, as we continue to heal and grow from our own derailed lives, is to give others hope that change is possible. In our work, we’ve seen that people can learn from their mistakes and become healthier. We’ve watched couples work hard to restore their marriage after infidelity and witnessed individuals who humbly grow and are redeemed from addiction and moral failure. We believe the very nature of our humanity is to find new meaning in impossible circumstances, and we want to help people discover resilience.
There are plenty of reasons why our brokenness should disqualify us. Yet, the very experiences some will use to disqualify us are the same reasons others will say we are qualified. We have failed big … but we have overcome bigger, and we want to use our stories to help others realize that they can, too. We feel honored when we get to step into the hardest places with people and partner with them as we walk together into a healthier life.
