Starting Infidelity counseling

What is Infidelity counseling?

Infidelity counseling is a specialized therapeutic approach designed for couples grappling with the aftermath of one or more partner’s infidelity. It offers a nurturing and non-judgmental environment where both individuals can delve into the underlying reasons behind the breach of trust, openly express their feelings, and collaboratively strive to mend their relationship.The overarching objective of infidelity counseling is to either facilitate a path to reconciliation, should both partners desire it, or guide them through the process of separation or divorce with clarity and empathy.

How does Infidelity counseling work?

Infidelity counseling combines various therapeutic techniques, such as individual and couples therapy, cognitive-behavioral approaches for changing destructive thought patterns, communication skills training for conflict resolution, Emotionally focused therapy (EFT) to rebuild trust, narrative therapy to reframe relationship narratives, and mindfulness practices for managing intense emotions. These methods work together to foster self-awareness, emotional healing, and the reconstruction of trust, leading to a healthier, more resilient relationship.

Is Infidelity counseling conducted in person or online?

Infidelity counseling at Thriveworks Georgetown, TX is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

Life after Infidelity – Counseling for Adultery in Georgetown, TX

Adultery can end a marriage, but sometimes, partners reconcile. Which is the right way? That decision belongs to the people in the relationship.

But after an affair, couples can understandably want help making tough choices. A professional counselor can give couples the support they need to recover from adultery, regardless of whether they continue the relationship or not.

The therapists at Thriveworks Georgetown, TX understand that adultery is more than material for clickbait—it is a difficult reality that many people face. They know how to guide couples through the devastation that infidelity may cause and onto a better relationship.

Infidelity and Its Effects

Cheating. Adultery. Infidelity. An affair.

Whatever people call it, the concept is the same: someone broke the expectations of a committed relationship. The expectations may be marriage vows or they may be agreed-up standards by long-term life partners. Either way, the effects can be crushing.

Part of the reason infidelity is so harmful is that it almost always involves deception and a breach of trust within a relationship that should be the most honest and safe.

Because the context for infidelity is relationships, an affair always affects other people—extended family, friends, and (at times) community members.

Generally, the uninvolved spouse and the children (if any) receive the bulk of the harm.

  • The Spouse: Many spouses who have been cheated on describe the experience as traumatic. Some may have post-traumatic stress symptoms. Adultery can turn a person’s world upside down: the person who was once a source of safety, fun, and companionship has wounded them deeply.
    After a spouse’s betrayal, the whole world can feel tainted by lies and deception. It is often hard for the uninvolved spouse to trust anything, much less their partner.
  • The Children: When children know that one parent has committed adultery, they feel the betrayal as well. Sometimes, it is not appropriate for children to know, if they are too young to understand. Even in these cases, children intuit the disruption in safety. Children may even internalize the disturbance and blame themselves for the family’s problems.

The harm adultery causes is severe. Victims of adultery may experience anger, anxiety, distrust, and depression. The wound from the betrayal is deep, and treatment must be extensive.

Infidelity Recovery

An experienced therapist can guide a couple toward the work that it takes to rebuild a healthy marriage or divorce as amicably as possible.

Therapists can lead couples through exercises and give them tools that will help them move forward with their lives. A few of these may include …

  • Improving Communication – After adultery, both partners may vacillate between cold silence and heated shouting matches.
  • Clarifying Objectives – After an affair, it may be hard for the couple to know what they want. Working with a therapist can bring clarity. The couple can then set specific goals for their relationship and evaluate the relationship’s health.
  • Re-establishing Trust – Infidelity always breaks trust between the couple, but also, the uninvolved spouse may begin to distrust himself or herself. A skilled therapist can help the couple make boundaries or incorporate accountability that may re-establishes trust.

I thought our marriage was over. I only gave him one option (counseling) or I was leaving. I wanted him to do it because he realized he had to make some changes in his thinking and his life...for his own happiness. The first counselor he tolerated for 1 session. I told him to do his own homework and he found Ashley on his own. The fact that my husband has been in her counseling for close to 2 years is truly amazing. This was one man who I totally expected to do 3-4 sessions and then decide it wasn't for him and then I would just consider divorce because our life was intolerable for me. He has learned things about himself that now make him very thoughtful about things and about what matters in his life and in our life. I am so appreciative for Ashley.

Absolutely love everything about Lindsey. She is amazing with my son (age 6). It has helped him so so so much and helped me parent the way he needs. I am so glad we were able to start seeing her and continue seeing her. He loves going to therapy and since we started his behavior has become so much better. Being a single mom of two, I'm glad he get specific attention from someone who cares. Thank you! I would give 10 stars if I could.

When my husband and I went to see Linda we were falling apart. She provided the tools we needed to pick up the pieces and heal our marriage. She is very knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, and tough when she needs to be. She is a blessing from God to us and I would highly recommend her.

I have always thought counseling wasn't for me; however, after being paired with Linda Mekesic, I was proven wrong. I was able to open up and learn from the grief that I didn't realize I was holding on to. It was a blessing and Linda and Thriveworks is a hidden blessing that I am glad I stumbled across.

I was never open to counseling but moving to Texas and having special people enter into my life, well I became open to it but knew I needed a special person and that is when Linda Mikesic came into my life. I thought I was there for letting my son move on and found out that I held onto a lot of grief of losing my husband and Linda had a special way of making me feel safe and that it was ok to feel again. I am so thankful and grateful that she helped me and I continue to use the tools that she taught me.

Linda Mikesic is a fantastic therapist and person. She has a compassion and love for others that can’t be taught. Being a mental health care provider, I am always looking for therapists to refer patients to. Therapists I can count on to treat my patients with love and respect. I've known Linda and collaborated with her for 3 years and fits that definition every time. I know when I refer my patients to Linda, that they will get individualized compassionate person-centered care.
