Infidelity Counseling in Buffalo, NY--Therapy for Adultery, Cheating, and Affairs

Infidelity Counseling in Buffalo, NY–Therapy for Adultery, Cheating, and Affairs

It seems that more people are seeking marriage counseling, couples therapy, or relationship counseling than ever before as modern life puts more and more pressures on couples all over the country. Infidelity levels are as high as they have ever been and counseling for adultery-related issues is now something that is more normal than ever before.

What Causes Infidelity?

Adultery and infidelity come from a root breakdown of something inside a marriage or a relationship. The most common reasons that counselors see are as follows:

  • Unhappiness at home within the marriage/relationship
  • Feeling dissatisfied with the relationship, both emotionally and sexually
  • A relationship not being worked on—just left to wither away

The above reasons all have a common core—they are all about neglect, where a partner is feeling lonely and neglected inside of a relationship and feels that they have to make up for that elsewhere. The infidelity itself is usually the result, not the cause.

Once it’s happened, though, it’s a nightmare. Counseling for infidelity at Thriveworks in Buffalo, NY often reveals the true feelings of anger, hatred, bitterness, humiliation, grief, depression, and despair that are evoked from one or other partner in a relationship being unfaithful. Not to mention the extreme guilt involved in hurting someone in that way.

How Do You Recover from Infidelity?

A compassionate, nonjudgmental, insightful counselor like those at Thriveworks in Buffalo, NY can help to make sense of your feelings after you’ve been cheated on. In order to find your emotional equilibrium again, it’s important to face your emotional distress head-on in a safe place. From there, you can learn to accept what has happened and find a path toward recovery.

For those couples struggling with adultery and infidelity within their relationships, one of the more productive things that they can do, if they want to save their relationship, is to seek counseling for infidelity. A professional counselor can help a couple in the following ways:

  • Identify the issues that had broken down in the relationship before the infidelity that led to it
  • Work on finding common ground again between the couple in order to start again
  • Work on all the feelings of rage, despair, and guilt affecting both parties and navigating a way through them

It’s worth noting that counseling for infidelity is tough. It’s not easy and can be emotionally draining. However, if a couple really wants to stay together and really loves each other despite the infidelity, it’s worth looking at, at least. If you and your spouse fit this description, then please make an appointment with us to determine how we can help you.

Jennifer Burt- LCSW-R

Jennifer balances her counseling expertly between talking/educating and listening. I already trust her after just a handful of sessions thanks to her objective feedback and concern. If you need a skilled mental health professional to help guide you thru life’s challenges, you will not be disappointed in Jennifer.

Extremely pleased

Wendy has been seeing my wife and I for almost two and half years. Her insights into how we both viewed our marriage so differently ultimately helped us both see that we are not the right people for one another. We have unfortunately decided that divorce was the right path forward for us as individuals but counseling made it a healthy, productive journey instead of letting things just fall apart at home. She is now my personal therapist helping me deal with the loss of my marriage. I don’t just appreciate our sessions, but I look forward to them. I take notes and I learn a lot about myself and my growth every time we meet.

So glad we found this place!

I was looking for a new therapist for my teenage son and came across their website. I called to see how long of a waitlist they had, expecting there to be a waitlist. ThriveWorks got my son in within 24 hours! Incredible! My son found a great therapist at ThriveWorks, Mr.Stephen Obrien. This guy has a unique approach and it works for my son. My son actually WANTS to go to therapy. He's getting more out of his sessions than either of us could have hoped for. We found this place at the right time and we couldn't be happier.
