One of the greatest challenges a couple will face is infidelity. This level of pain and devastation may be so extreme that you question every part of the relationship.
The causes of infidelity vary and can be incredibly complex. Affairs can happen in happy marriages as well as troubled ones, and although we’re all susceptible to the betrayal, the good news is that the majority of marriages not only survive infidelity, but they can become stronger and more intimate after therapy.
It’s important to know whether the purpose of treatment is to rebuild the marriage, resolve ambivalence, or separate amicably. One spouse may want to reconcile while the other is unsure, or has even decided that they no longer want to stay in the relationship.
Our process is one of recovery and healing that ultimately leads to forgiveness. Although this process is not a quick one, the stages help us establish safety while addressing painful feelings and emotions around the affair.
