Marriages that experience emotional or sexual infidelity are traumatized – often the Betrayed feels rejected and the Betrayer shamed. The pain is excruciating! We work with your physician if you aren’t able to eat or sleep or need FMLA assistance. For Crisis: schedule a 1 or 2 day intensive to expedite stabilization of partners and home life.
Learn the Steps
There is a dual process that experienced Affair Recovery (AR) therapists balance in your healing. Inexperienced AR therapists are not always aware, and the process can easily become off-balanced. Trauma & stabilization and depth psychology skills are tools needed in both processes. Our expert therapists can guide you through the pain and recovery process.
Choose Your Method
If total disclosure hasn’t been done, you may opt to schedule a 2-hour session for full disclosure. If you are in crisis, you may need to schedule weekly sessions. If you are far enough along in the recovery process, you may need bi-monthly sessions. Let us help you choose.
Healing from Infidelity
Couples who have been traumatized by infidelity need an experienced marriage counselor with training in affair recovery. Infidelity is traumatic and causes significant emotional distress and family system disruption. I have co-led several weekend retreats locally, in Austin and South Africa. I am able to help stabilize the trauma and gently guide the hurting couple into relationship repair.
There are unique therapy needs of the Rebuilder who injured the marriage bond, and unique needs of the Betrayed. Our work together will look at the various stages of the marriage, what derailed the marriage and together we will create a plan to secure the marriage from any future intrusion.
