healing & hope after betrayal


helping people recover from the pain of infidelity


Intimate betrayal is one of the most painful experiences in life. And, it can wreak havoc on your marriage, your ability to function, and your emotional equilibrium. Whether one or both of you have been unfaithful in some way, the wounds go unbelievably deep. Repair as a couple or individual is difficult to navigate without the help of an outside expert.

Helping folks recover from the damage of infidelity has been a special focus of mine for over 30 years as a marriage and family therapist. And, after I unexpectedly went through the same trauma in my first marriage, I came through more determined than ever to help couples stay together if at all possible. And, when they are unable to, I have the compassion and insight to guide persons through the painful maze of recovery.
