Do you ask yourself: Why do I keep drowning in the silence of my pain, fearing judgment, when screaming for help could be my lifeline? If so, it might be time to schedule a therapy session. Depression and anxiety present pervasive challenges impacting daily life. Individuals with depression experience persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest in once-enjoyable activities. Anxiety manifests as excessive worry, fear, and heightened stress. It’s up to you to learn to understand yourself, acquire tools and skills needed to overcome fear of judgment, loneliness, or self-doubt.

I believe in a genuine partnership between a therapist and client and aim to create a safe space full of empathy and curiosity. I find myself drawn to helping people find the tools to more successfully communicate with those they hold dear. There are many unique facets to our individual lives, and each piece has helped to create the person, people, and family that surrounds us today. Approaching therapy with a Marriage and Family Therapy background simply means that I view each individual as part of a whole system, with many influences at play. Family, chosen relationships, and society all affect the choices we make.

Sometimes we find ourselves at an inner-crossroads. Maybe you’ve realized you’re repeating cycles you know you want to break. Maybe you’re feeling unfulfilled but can't pinpoint why. Maybe you feel tossed around by your own intense emotions, or maybe you just can’t seem to make the changes you crave. You’re not alone. I work with clients who are often smart and anxious, who tend to feel exhausted by working so hard yet somehow still feel like it’s never enough. I also work with clients who feel sensitive to the world around them, often to the point of overwhelm.

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.
