Do you know or suspect that your partner is having or has had an affair?
Infidelity is breaking a promise you and your partner made. This promise can be marriage vows or a verbal agreement between couples to stay faithful, to be in an exclusive relationship. When one of the partners breaks this promise, the impact in the relationship is irreversible, but it can still be repairable.
The process of healing after infidelity will help you determine the future goals of the relationship, whether you choose to continue or end it. As your therapist, I will offer a supportive environment for each of you to express your emotions and guide you through the process of recovery.
Infidelity Therapy can include:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD
Out of Control Sexual Behaviors (Sex Addiction)
Sexual Health Concerns
Overcoming infidelity is not easy, but it is possible. Allow yourself time to heal in a safe and open environment.
Are you facing a complex infidelity?
Not all affairs are alike and every couple faces their own personal struggles. Sometimes the situation is complex such as the affair partner was someone you or your partner worked with or a close friend you thought you could trust. When boundaries are not clear, communication and connection are lost, or emotions start to grow and not spoken about, it can be possible for a marriage to be vulnerable to an affair.
As your therapist I will help you to first overcome the emotions of betrayal; reestablish open communication, and finally set the right boundaries to meet your wants and needs as well as your partner’s if you choose to continue with your relationship.
Are you trying to recover from an affair?
Betrayal is not easy to overcome. It’s very common to experience anger, depression, anxiety, and a sense of loss. It may even feel like you have lost a sense of reality at times. The reactions of the victim of infidelity can resemble the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These emotions are very normal in the beginning.
As your therapist, I can help you cope with these emotions. The first step will be to offer a safe environment to open the communication and start the process of healing.
Can relationships survive infidelity?
Yes, about 2/3 of relationships get through infidelity! The successful couples reported that with the help of an experienced therapist they were able to heal from these wounds, find forgiveness, and create a new future together.
My partner cheated! Does this mean our marriage was bad?
Absolutely not! Just because there was an affair in your relationship does not mean that it was bad. Sometimes it is not about the level of satisfaction in the relationship, there are other factors that can cause vulnerability for an affair in your marriage.
