Affairs can be one of the most difficult issues couples ever have to face. They occur for a variety of reasons, and often reflect schisms in the relationship, schisms that were there well before the infidelity occurred. Couples can repair their relationship after an affair, but it takes a lot of hard work and patience as trust is rebuilt.
If your partner has had an affair and you’re wondering what to do, give me call. We can discuss the situation, assess where the relationship is at, what your goals of counseling might be, and schedule an appointment to begin the process of healing. Ideally, both partners participate in the counseling. The goal of the process isn’t to shame or punish the person what had the affair, rather to understand what thoughts and choices led to the infidelity, and exploring what is needed to repair the relationship and ensure that the infidelity doesn’t happen again.
