If you are struggling with your partner's sexual betrayal, I can help you take steps forward that support your well-being. I will help you understand what's happening in your relationship, decide what you need, and teach you what to do with the intense feelings of fear, anger, and pain. You can feel in control of your life once again.
In our work together, I will help you create peace in your home so you feel emotionally safe and can heal without being re-traumatized.
If your a Mom, I know you have questions about your children--what to do, how this will affect them, will they will be okay? It's natural to have these fears when your life is under stress. I can address your worries and teach you how to be proactive for your children's well-being, and prevent them from taking on the families stress. I will give you strategies to help your children feel secure and loved, regardless of the stress the family is under.
I will teach you how to know if your partner has really changed and how to trust your intuition. I will help you decide what healthy choices look like for you, and how to ask for your needs. We will stop your internal dialogue telling you that you're not good enough or that this is your fault. I will empower you to make decisions that feel right to you and I will be your advocate every step of the way. I want to help you live the life you deserve.
As a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT), I help partners of sex addicts and their families heal from betrayal and addiction and build a healthy family environment. I practice as a trauma-informed therapist, meaning I will never blame you for your partner's compulsive sexual behaviors or label you as codependent or a co-addict. I will support you as someone who has been blindsided and hurt by their partner's compulsive behavior.
I am a Certified Clinical Partner Specialist candidate and have been trained in the Multidimensional Partner Trauma Model from Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists (APSATS). I have the experience and knowledge needed to help women create emotional, physical, and sexual safety in their relationship. My background in advocating for domestic violence survivors has given me an in-depth understanding of betrayal trauma and it's impact on the family. I have also served on a domestic violence response team, and know what to do to help individuals through moments of crisis.
