Infidelity is some hard effing crap to deal with under any circumstances. Whether you are the hurt spouse or the one that did the betraying, the road is rocky with many ups and downs and is challenging to navigate without the proper guide. Whether you are recovering as a couple or an individual, this is where we can help. Infidelity is more than acting sexually outside of the relationship with another person. Infidelity is the keeping of secrets, such as emotional, sexual, and financial.
Relationships are sometimes challenging. The same issues come up over and over. Having problems is incredibly frustrating when your response to conflict is opposite or significantly different from your spouse’s. Perhaps betrayal eroded your trust, or you’ve experienced marital trauma. Some problems may seem impossible. The good news is that you can have an intimate connection. Those negative patterns that emerged in your relationship have created barriers to genuine connection. I can help.
No one knows the hurt and trauma of your past. The message you received was to “buck up” and deal with it. If you talked about it, you received rejection and were left feeling shame again. So, you learned ways to deal with the pain and get through the day. These ways of coping, although not the healthiest, helped you survive. Unresolved trauma may have occurred in childhood, the workplace, or in relationships. As a result, your trauma has led to feelings of anger, fear, guilt, and shame.
