The discovery of a spouse/partner being unfaithful can bring on a response from the hurt partner that is similar to people who've lived through other "traditional" traumatic events. I take my role seriously in offering the best possible care for helping to heal the trauma of infidelity. While there may be multiple reasons given for the betrayal, there are definite steps that are a must in order for recovery to take place. That is why I urge you, in seeking the help you need, to research the professional background of a potential counselor, ensuring you receive help from someone who has extensive experience and training in working with the issue of infidelity and relationship betrayal.
My experience stems from the following:
* I am an Approved Gottman 7 Principles Program Educator
* Over 20 years working with couples who have experienced infidelity
* Extensive training in utilizing evidenced-based interventions for treating traumatic response
* Continual studying of and training in using the principles for relational attachment taught by Drs. John and Julie Gottman
* Use of the principles based on research by Dr. Sue Johnson, primary founder of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
* Collaborative work with a Certified Clinical Sexual Addiction Specialist
* Ability to utilize faith-based priniciples in the healing process
If you've been affected by relationship betrayal, I invite you to consider allowing me to help you through a most difficult time.
Even if there has been no infidelity, but you and your spouse believe you could benefit from relationship counseling, I encourage you to consider taking mindful steps toward counseling as a means to strengthen your marriage, intimate relationships, and important attachments.
