1. CRISIS MANAGEMENT:

The fallout from an affair can be brutal. The betrayed partner often bears the brunt of the initial trauma and will experience traumatic symptoms such as intrusive thoughts, hyper-vigilance, an inability to sleep and other emotional discomfort. The couple usually is engulfed in overwhelming emotions of betrayal, shame and loss.

Our team of therapists have supported countless couples with similar struggles. We are have learned what works and what doesn't work. And most  important to you, we will walk with you, step-by-step, guiding you through the steps to restore some stability in the midst the chaos. Once chaos is stabilized, the stage can be set for healing to begin.
