Have you been betrayed and deceived by someone you love?

Have you been betrayed and deceived by someone you love? The anguish and turmoil stirred by betrayal, particularly by those closest to us, can feel isolating and insurmountable. As an Associate Sex Addiction Therapist and Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in navigating individuals and couples through the treacherous journey of betrayal trauma. With a focus on the betrayal trauma-informed model of treatment, I am deeply committed to understanding the unique trauma spawned by deceptive sexuality in relationships.

My expertise encompasses Infidelity Recovery, Emotional Abuse Support, and Sexual Addiction Healing. I recognize that each situation carries its distinctive challenges, and my therapeutic approach is tailored to address the specific circumstances of each couple I work with.

Believe me when I say, I understand the deep wounds that betrayal can leave—especially when it comes from someone you trusted and loved. It’s a pain that can shake the very foundation of your world and relationships. However, it is crucial to remember that you are not alone. Recovery is not a distant dream; it’s a tangible reality that can be achieved with the right support and compassionate professionals at your side.

Together, we can explore pathways to healing and reconstruct a future grounded in trust and mutual respect. Your journey to recovery is just as important as the destination, and I am here to walk with you every step of the way
