Although the desire for romantic intimacy is perfectly natural, long term intimate relationships are rarely naturally perfect. For over 30 years I have dedicated my professional life to helping individuals and couples fine tune their not-always naturally perfect relationships. Although I am a clinical psychologist who continues to treat individuals suffering from the full spectrum of psychological disorders, most of my career has been devoted to working with individuals and couples experiencing marital, relationship, and/or sexual concerns; to assisting couples seeking relief from the trauma of infidelity; and to treating individuals suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder or anger control issues.

Grappling with heartbreak, betrayal, and loss comes with its expectable pain.
With the demands of everyday life, our own emotional demands can often go unmet- causing pain, discomfort, bitterness, and frustration. Taking a step back from the responsibilities pulling us in all directions to closely examine our emotions and relationships can feel impossible, uncomfortable, or even intolerable. But if you're interested in pursuing therapy, you may have already realized the discomfort of things remaining "stuck" is worth trading for the discomfort that comes with growth. If you want to make changes and don't know where to start, talking it through with an empathic therapist can help.

Serving Maryland and New Jersey. As a Pastor for over 35 years, I can merge a spirituality with my clinical approach to therapy for those who wish it. For men who want to be free from compulsive sexual behaviors I use a blend of clinical and biblical principles and have seen many freed from decades of addiction. This is also true for marriages that have been broken due to infidelity, pornography, and sexual practices that are not agreed upon within the marriage. Working successfully to stop the unwanted behavior and develop appropriate coping skills, communication and restored trust, is very rewarding and satisfying.

As a couple and family therapist, I help individuals and couples work on either fine-tuning their communications skills or major problem-solving, so they can finally move beyond issues such as pointless arguing, infidelity, emotional disconnection and lack of intimacy.
If you're feeling overwhelmed by the pain of wondering whether to leave or stay in your relationship because you've tried everything but nothing really works, I'd like to help. At times, you may feel angry and disappointed that the attraction, admiration or compassion for each other has begun to fade. Or you may sometimes believe things are starting to improve only to feel the tension return once again. It can be a draining dance that leaves you confused, wounded and bitter.

Infidelity Therapists

How does therapy for infidelity work?

A skilled infidelity therapist will provide a safe space for clients to communicate their feelings and concerns. The goal is to be completely honest about what led to the cheating and how it has affected the entire family to prevent it from recurring in the future. The therapist will help the clients work on rebuilding mutual trust and respect and developing better communication and conflict-resolution skills. If the goal is to remain a couple, clients will learn the “danger signs” for their specific relationship, and they will make a renewed commitment to be faithful.

How long does therapy for infidelity take?

Recovery from infidelity can take time, and it can vary from person to person. Generally, a therapist will want to see the clients at least once a week for around six months. Then the sessions can be arranged as needed, depending on the clients’ individual needs. While therapy may end or shift to an as-needed basis, it can take up to two years or more for some clients to fully recover from infidelity.

How does therapy help the partner who was cheated on?

When a client discovers their partner’s infidelity, their trust in the relationship and in the life they had together may be shattered. They often experience mental health symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, grief, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They don’t always want to stay in the relationship; they may feel ambivalent or may even want to leave. Therapy gives these clients a safe and healthy way to communicate all of their complicated emotions and concerns.

How does therapy help the partner who committed infidelity?

Infidelity often occurs when one or both partners’ emotional needs are not being met in the relationship. Therapy can help this client understand why they cheated and figure out how to address those unmet needs without resorting to infidelity in the future. This can lessen (but not entirely eliminate) the risk of repeated infidelity. Clients who cheat may also feel intense guilt about deceiving their partners, a sentiment that they can work through in therapy.
