HELP FOR partners
of SEX Addicts.

We provide help for partners of sex addicts. Your world is never the same as the partner of someone who has a sexual addiction. We understand that you are hurting. We will help you understand what you are feeling and why. Our intensive counseling programs, books and DVDs will help you cope with your feelings of grief, anger and betrayal. Let us help you recover from your trauma and loss.

Help for Partners of sex addicts

Partners of sex addicts need an advocate to call upon. Feelings of fear, hurt, anger, betrayal, and grief require a compassionate effective response. We provide that expert guidance and direction. We offer help for partners of sex addicts to heal through sessions that get them answers to their many questions including: “How can I trust him again?” Partners or wives living with a sex addict typically report common feelings, such as aloneness, the sense that the partner can’t open up and tell you about his “real” self. The confusion comes as a result of doing certain behaviors that are still not enough and hopelessness that there isn’t enough. Anger from many unmet needs, as a person and as a woman, are often common. Many of these issues are addressed in the following books and DVDs.

Even if the addict stays in denial of their addiction, there is support and help for partners of sex addicts. The feelings of anger, loss, loneliness and many other feelings encountered over the years of living with this addiction will affect a person deeply. These feelings need to be dealt with therapeutically whether they stay married to the addict or not. We would be happy to discuss this more in detail during your counseling appointment.

As a partner or wife, the addiction comes from nothing you’re doing; the addiction started many years before you even met your addict. This addiction would have grown and damaged anyone they would have related to, in any relationship.

Help for Partner betrayal trauma

Partner betrayal trauma is relational trauma which is created by broken trust, unfaithfulness, and a loss of confidence in your partnership, relationship, or marriage. This trauma can be caused by things like spousal neglect, cheating, infidelity, dishonesty, deception, romantic relationship betrayal, rejection, or other circumstances which cause you to lose faith in your partner or significant other. Your betrayal is real. Your trauma from the betrayal of your partner is very real. It is not just real personally but also real statistically. You’re not the same person before and after trauma. You have been impacted significantly. You most likely have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms, depression, and your trust has been violated at every level. You may have experienced partner betrayal trauma if you have dealt with broken trust and feelings of betrayal in your relationship. This can happen because of things like addiction, relational anorexia, personality disorders, or creating secret worlds. Partner betrayal trauma is a unique trauma in that your spouse or significant other is the perpetrator of the trauma. The betrayal has a real impact.  We have created several tests to help you assess the impact of this betrayal. Each test is designed to address different partner betrayal aspects. The tests are free, and you will be given your test results instantly along with a short video from Dr. Doug Weiss to help guide your next steps toward healing from your partner betrayal trauma.
