Short Pump Infidelity Counseling

Infidelity Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Short Pump, VA

Infidelity is all too common. Recent studies have shown cheating rates among men to be anywhere from 20-28% and among women to be from 5-15%. The reasons for why someone chooses to cheat are varied and unique by situation. It is common for a person who has been unfaithful to cite feeling neglected, misunderstood, restless, or lonely in their relationship. Poor communication that has been ongoing can lead to many different problems in a relationship, with infidelity and betrayal being among them.

When you are dealing with infidelity in your relationship or marriage, the whole world can feel like it is falling apart. The part of your life that you considered a source of peace and comfort, now feels like an incredibly stressful challenge. When someone that you thought you knew and trusted betrays you in such an intimate and personal way, it can be almost too painful to be able to function. Where do you turn for help? Couples counseling at Henrico, VA Thriveworks can be the answer for healing and recovery.

Although the old saying might try to convince us that, “Love is all you need,” this is simply not the case. Of course, love is a necessary starting point in any relationship, but healthy communication, honesty, and mutual respect are almost nearly as important. When these simple things are not present, and then betrayal occurs, hard work is needed to help the relationship recover. Thriveworks Henrico couples counselors are ready to help you create the relationship that you once had, or figure out the next steps for the most healthy outcome for each member of the relationship.

When a serious betrayal occurs, two people can sometimes work through problems on their own, but most often, couples need professional help to learn how to heal in a healthy, positive way. Harmful patterns of behavior that have been present for weeks, months, years, or even decades, are not easily broken, but real change is a possibility, even after infidelity. Working with a Thriveworks Henrico couples counselor can help each member understand their negative patterns of behavior and communication, and find ways to change them in the future.

Your Thriveworks Short Pump, VA couples counselor can help you and your partner explore many different methods for changing patterns of behavior in a relationship. When you learn the necessary tools to stop harmful interactions from happening, you can then help create the framework for establishing loving, positive actions.

Some of these ideas for change may include:

  • Recognizing and acknowledging problems
  • Identifying the source of your problems
  • Listening to your partner
  • Acknowledging and respecting your partner’s feelings
  • Being honest and clear about your feelings and emotions
  • Changing negative patterns of response and reaction
  • Developing new tools for creating healthy communication
  • Maintaining and fostering intimacy
  • Dealing with underlying psychological issues or addictions

Truly cares

I've worked with Domonique and I've seen the care and concern she provides her clients. She is invested in their wellbeing and offers clinically sound services. She is supportive, down to earth, but is also willing to tackle the tough issues, and by doing so, increases clients' growth and sets clients up for long-term success. She supported me in handling various major life changing situations.

Mary helped me see the light again!

I was drinking just to cope with my depression 9 months ago. I thought it was the drinking that caused me to be depressed and miserable. I was so in denial I didn’t see how depressed and sad I really was. I had no hope. Mary put everything in perspective for me and helped challenge me to change. She gave me a little tough love and guidance that I needed. With the help of Mary’s help, coping skills, -and medication, I feel like a new woman! Thanks Mary for all your help! You rock! ❤️

Review of Roberta Morell

I have used Roberta as a consultant for three years. Her consultations about therapeutic and ethical situations have been both professional and wise. I am a hospital chaplain at a busy hospital and for our most challenging cases, I turn to Roberta. She is responsive and empathetic. I highly recommend Roberta as both a therapist and consultant.

Rebekah Lowenstein

Mrs. Lowenstein is one of my favorite people and one of the best supervisors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her commitment to my success as an MSW is nothing short of miraculous. She has advocated for me to get supervision from the Board of Social Work and has been next to me every step of my journey. Rebekah continues to go above and beyond for me and I have not doubt that she will do this for her clients as well. She is patient, funny, personable, competent, and one of the smartest women I know.

I have had depression for many years. My friend suggested I see Kylie Wright NP, which was one of the best suggestions I have ever received. Kylie took the time to listen to all of my concerns. She ruled out other medical conditions carefully, and then began medication adjustments that has been life changing. I have not been happy, less stressed, and positive I.n my thinking In years. I felt compelled to provide feedback so that others in community know the accessibility to a kind and talented psychiatric provider.
