People are often surprised to find themselves involved in an affair. Sometimes it happens quickly, and other times it can build over a period of years. Whether you are in a physical affair, emotional affair, internet affair, or any other type of affair – if you are hurting, anxious, or troubled because of how an external relationship is conflicting with your committed bond, I can help.
Sometimes my clients come to me in the midst of a destructive and addictive affair because they feel trapped. Other clients begin counseling at the point that their relationship has ended, and they need help dealing with the aftermath and destruction that the affair has caused.
Affairs happen for various reasons. Even couples in happy relationships are not spared from extra marital affairs. Usually, reasons include low self-esteem, sexual addiction, and addiction to love or romance, immaturity, fear of intimacy, not getting enough from the marriage or not contributing to enough to it. Sometimes, it may be an action of retaliation, a means of ending an unhappy marriage, an impulsive action as a result of alcohol or drugs and even life transition such as an empty nest syndrome or a child’s birth. Although not all marriage tainted by infidelity can be saved, counseling can be very beneficial.
I assist my clients in putting the affair into context, so they can learn why it happen. I can also help them regain clear thinking so that they feel empowered to make the right decisions for their own lives.
My clients know that I am here to assist them on their path in a productive and non-judgmental way. I understand that every person is different, every relationship is different, and every affair is different. My role is to let you define your own goals for your relationship and to help you move towards them. I am an experienced infidelity counselor who has years of experience in working with a variety of relationship types and situations. If you feel trapped by a past or current affair – I can help.
