Helping Betrayed Partners Heal from the Impact of Betrayal Trauma.

Marriage & Family Therapist in Long Beach, CA

About My Clients

Have you suffered the trauma of being betrayed by an intimate partner? The act of betrayal can shatter your confidence and rattle the very foundation that you have built over time. You can feel like you are constantly on edge and overwhelmed, not know what step you need to take next. These can be post-traumatic stress. The overwhelming emotions it brings up are difficult to manage alone, but with someone who understands what you are feeling by their side, they become easier to work through.

My Background and Approach

I understand how hard it can be to overcome the emotional and mental turmoil of being betrayed. I know how hard it can be to find a therapist who understands all of the emotions that come with betrayal trauma. I can help you get your footing back, feel stable again, and start healing yourself - and do what's right for you! I have studied many different therapeutic modalities during my years as a therapist, including EMDR trauma resolution therapy and sex addiction rehabilitation counseling with both partners and individuals struggling with this issue. I understand. First, we will assess what is going on so I can help you get your footing again- then together, we'll explore setting boundaries where appropriate while working towards healing yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. As we progress, we will work on the traumatic emotions and begin rebuilding; however, that fits you. There's no need to worry about being judged or feeling alone. I can help.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that a relationship can survive and thrive after betrayal trauma; if both partners are willing to do the work. I have seen it happen. And I don't believe that there is a one-size-fits-all to healing after betrayal trauma. Each person and couple needs to be open to finding what works for them. I understand that you can feel isolated and lonely when dealing with betrayal trauma, I want you to know that you are not alone. Reach out today and get support. You deserve all the care you need to heal.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
