From the mud of adversity grows the lotus of joy.
Sex addiction impacts many lives, yet the person reeling from the discovery and knowledge of a partners sexual betrayal often feels very alone.
I provide the opportunity for betrayed partners to join together to share their experience, strength and hope in a non judgmental and supportive group. The group meets on Wednesdays from 8-9 PM on HIPPA Compliant Zoom Live Video Platform. This is an open ended group for clients I have worked with in my private practice and is by invitation only. The one non-negotiable boundary is that everything you hear or share remain strictly confidential.
Whether I am working with you or your partner individually, or in couples counseling, once I know you are feeling grounded and safe, I will offer you the opportunity to meet with others who are learning how to manage and cope with feelings and issues that may be similar to your own.
Feelings of fear, anger, hurt, rejection, abandonment, frustration, powerlessness, grief, shame, insecurity and confusion may be creating chaos and destruction. With the support of those who have had similar experiences and are at different points of the healing process, you may feel heard, understood, and transformed by new perspectives, education, and hope that things can get better. As post traumatic growth occurs you may experience growing feelings of compassion, understanding, self awareness and detachment with love.
Topics will be presented for each member to listen and reflect on and hopefully begin to feel safe enough to share their vulnerabilities with the group. Everything is done with the purpose of healing and finding your inner peace.
Members of the group are free to contact and support each other outside of the group unless you ask me not to give out your contact information.
