Spouses/Partners Of Sex Addicts
We also specialize in helping the partners of sex addicts heal their trauma first — by understanding and differentiating complex partner trauma — and helping the spouse and partner of an addict get the truth, set and maintain healthy boundaries, and stop the crazy-making.
While the sex addict has known for many years about his or her problematic sexual behaviors, and being in sexual addiction counseling is often a relief, the betrayed partner is often blindsided by the discovery or disclosure. We recognize that the cheating itself, or a specific sexual behaviors, is not what causes the most pain, it is the loss of trust in the relationship caused by the constant lying of the addict.
Partners who have experienced betrayal have valid reasons to feel deeply wounded, shaken, mistrustful, angry, confused, scared, and lost. Partners of sex addicts who decide to stay in the relationship often go through PTSD symptoms and it takes time to reestablish real trust and safety with the betraying partner.
We understand that you are confused, scared, and unsure you want to stay in the relationship. We are here for you. So don’t be afraid to reach out to us. You may feel all alone, but our counselors have years of experience helping partners heal from the betrayal trauma. Our center provides both individual counseling and group support for partners/spouses of sex addicts.
