When a woman discovers her spouse is involved in sexually compulsive behaviors, she often feels as though the floor has fallen out from underneath her. It seems everything she thought she knew about her spouse and her life is suddenly a lie. She feels the deepest sense of betrayal, and wonders if she will ever trust again. Her world is falling apart and there is nothing to hold onto. She feels all alone and often does not tell another living soul about the horror she has been plunged into.

I use a combination of several psychological theories, depending on what will best meet my client's needs, including ImTT and EMDR, to help clients experience healing and change in the places where their pain originated. This not only creates symptom reduction and/or extinction but also produces an outcome of inner peace, joy and freedom, putting an end to trying harder, pretending or "white-knuckling" through. I love this work and look forward to connecting with you in your journey toward emotional wholeness!

If you're looking for someone to talk to about a partner who has cheated on you, or for a Brentwood infidelity therapist who can help you recover from an affair and overcome the lying and betrayal, these infidelity therapists in Brentwood can help with infidelity issues.
