My Approach to Helping
If you are struggling in your affair recovery more than normal with our current state of affairs, you are not alone. Even if you haven’t been effected by the virus, or had a family member effected, you may be impacted by the fear of its potential or of the economic impact it could have on you, close family members, or the world around you. For many couples, sex and marital issues are being made more complex and sometimes harder to cope with by the shelter in place orders.
Our unique approach to affair recovery is available through online therapy, and our at home neurofeedback program is profoundly impactful.
Are you struggling to rebuild trust after an affair? Are you finding that no matter how hard you try, the thoughts of the two of them together won't go away? Perhaps you wonder if there is even hope for your marriage. Maybe you have been working very hard to rebuild but find the pain and fear too overwhelming. Are you deeply worried about these things? If so, I'd like to help.
It is important to know you are not alone. Most people feel rage, have nightmares, and find themselves having fantasies of revenge. Many people work hard trying to rebuild trust, and like a rat in a maze, find themselves bumping into dead end after dead end. There are reasons for this. Marriage counseling for affair recovery can help.
With affair recovery counseling, I can assist you and your spouse in turning things around. There are no easy answers, but you can learn and master the principles that can guide you toward healing and ultimately toward greater calm and intimacy.
In addition to private affair recovery counseling I help couples with their sexual relationship and with parenting. We also offer professional grade neurofeedback equipment rentals to take your counseling to the level of the physiology of the brain.
More Info About My Practice
I've been practicing marriage and family counseling for 22 years. I am licensed in both Georgia and Colorado. I have office hours Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and can help with neurofeedback any day of the week.
I am primarily conducting online therapy with social distancing in full effect. If you need to come into the office, we will practice social distancing protocols to remain safe and healthy. While online counseling is new to many therapists, I have been doing it for several years now. Many of my clients now prefer it! Consider the advantages of online therapy: greater confidentiality and convenience, cost effective (no travel time, no babysitter to pay), and the same exceptional quality of service and clinical effectiveness my clients have come to expect. You can visit my website to learn more about my work and about how easy and effective online therapy can be.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Often times one spouse is open to marriage counseling while the other is unsure or uninterested. Here are a few tips to consider if you are the spouse who wants the help:
1. Talk to them and tell them what you're feeling and what you'd like to do about it.
2. If they are still not interested, do some research and find a therapist who specializes in working with couples.
3. Schedule your appointment and invite your spouse to join you.
4. If they are still not interested, attend your initial session and see if you'd like to continue individually.
5. If you do, see if your spouse will attend just one to two sessions. Your therapist will be better able to help you if they do.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
The industry average for people in therapy is 6 months or 25 sessions. I often see a shift in couples within the first 2-4 months. This can happen if you are coming together or just by yourself.
