- I just freeze when my partner is angry, and I don’t say anything at all.
- My partner tells me I just don’t care about their pain, but that’s not true. I do care.
- I can feel defensive when my partner is expressing their hurt or anger, but I just can’t seem to stop myself.
- When their upset, I just find myself getting angry, and then sometimes I just say what they want to hear.
- I am afraid to do anything. I feel like I’m shutting down.
- I have no idea how to respond to my partner.
- My partner is never going to trust me again. What’s the point?
- I know I have hurt my partner, but when is it going to get better? I can’t do this dance much longer.
- I want them to know that I’m sorry, but I am just too afraid to bring it up.
- I feel like I’m walking on eggshells, and at any moment it’s going to fall apart.
- I feel so much shame about how I hurt my partner that I just shut down when I saw them in pain.

Open The Door To Healing
We have found that men who want the relationship to heal often feel lost in what to do to heal the relationship
You need a place to work out how to respond with authenticity and empathy to your partner’s trauma and pain.
You need a place to deal with your own shame and guilt around your addictive behavior, so you can show up fully to help heal your partner’s pain.
Why Group Therapy?
This group provides a safe place to work on your own feelings, and you get feedback on how to respond authentically in your relationship to have the best chance at healing and creating the relationship you both desire. You also get an opportunity to listen to others and learn how to build
an enriching relationship with your partner.
Start Healing The Relationship
This is critical at the beginning of a relationship to reestablish trust. This is also a place for you to work on your own sense of pain and shame so you can remain present as your partner heals.
The beautiful part of healing a relationship after a betrayal is seeing the relationship flourish once the trauma is validated and understood, and both people in the relationship can truly feel safe being themselves.
How The Group Works
You learn the skills at genuine connection and empathy with others on the same journey.
We will have 8 people per group with one or two group facilitators. The group meets once per week and lasts 1 1/2 hours. We ask each new member to make a minimum 6-month commitment to the group. The cost of the group is $360 per month.
