In-Person Counseling Sessions

We are wounded in relationship, and we heal in relationship. Contact us now and let your healing journey begin.

Meeting Face-to-Face

Meeting in person is usually the preferred method for those in the counseling profession. There is something about being in close proximity with another human being that even the best technology cannot replicate.

Rapport is the key element to building trust within the counselor/client dyad, and in-person sessions provide the help of all six senses and all 3 dimensions. The helper relationship is about synergy, collaboration and safety. It creates a non-judgmental space to process and restore, to gain new insights, and to grow.

What to Expect in Your In-Person Session

You can expect to first have a sacred space to share. Good listening and empathy, attention to the details of your story and experience. Affair recovery begins after the known facts of the event have been collected and discussed.

Questions may be asked about any pre-existing conditions that may be relevant to the infidelity. Past trauma, family history and mental health questions are a standard part of the counseling process.

Limerance and sexual addiction (compulsive sexual behavior) usually are explained as well. Initial sessions have a lot of back-and-forth Q&A between the client and the counselor, and psycho-education around counseling, trauma and affair recovery.

The client is always welcome to ask questions about how the therapy process works, how infidelity recovery ebbs and flows, what challenges can be expected, etc. Clients are always encouraged to read professional infidelity recovery blogs, articles, and listen to podcasts and YouTube videos.

Treatment plans are developed but always remain fluid as new information and developments occur in the process of infidelity recovery counseling. If the couple is attempting to repair the marriage after an affair, then we take the three leg stool approach where the three treatment plans work together between the hurt spouse and his/her betrayal trauma, the unfaithful spouse and repairing the marriage itself.

SUCCESS STORIES:

A Direct & Actionable Approach

“Amanda walked with me during the most tragic time of my life. When I felt there was no hope for my marriage to truly heal from infidelity- she spurred me on. With raw and transparent honesty, Amanda spoke into my life. That she had been where I was, inspired and encouraged me. I found practical strategies for coping and moving forward. I am so grateful for having had made this connection with Amanda during my recovery.”
ShannonMother of 4, Social Services Project Coordinator, Canada

Authenticity & Understanding

“Amanda is someone who puts her heart and soul into helping other people through some of the most difficult times in their lives. Infidelity has a way of making people feel isolated and Amanda has the ability to reach out to that person and let them know that they are not alone. She is amazingly supportive and we are blessed to have had her help us along this road.”
Lucas & ElizabethArmy Soldier & Mother of 4, Washington State

Lifting the Burden of Blame

“Over three years ago I found out that my husband was involved with another woman. I pushed everything down inside, pretending all was normal on the outside, we tried to go on with our lives. I sank deeper and deeper into depression. I felt like I was trapped and wished that God would just take me so I would not have to endure the shame, insecurities, trauma and isolation of this offense. I cried out to God so many times, it seemed there was no one listening. But God led me to a group of women lead by Amanda, who walked me through the things I needed to confront not only in my husband, but in my self. Only those who have shared a similar experiences can know the pain, anxiety, fear, and rejection you are dealing with or are not dealing with. Amanda is that person. She was always kind hearted. Over and over she took the blame for his affair off of my shoulders and put it back where it belonged, on him. She encouraged me to take up for myself, something I had never done. I know that she prayed for me and my marriage all the way through this process and is probably still praying. I am in a much better place now than I was before. I am healing. It is hard to find help these days that actually knows how to deal with infidelity. If you think that you can work through this process on your own, you are deceiving yourself. Whether or not you divorce or stay in your marriage, you need help.”

Comfort & Trustworthiness

"Amanda was a blessing. We were introduced to her during a very painful time in our lives. We were desperate to know if our marriage could be saved after my husband’s infidelity. She has a way of making you very comfortable to share information and letting you know you are not alone. Gaining that trust is critical for a couple to heal and grow. We will forever be grateful."

Making Way for Healing

“I am so thankful to Amanda for being there during some of my darkest times. She was able to encourage me and explain why the way that I was was completely normal at a time in my life when I did not trust anything anymore. She encouraged me to truly find myself and allow myself what I needed to heal in order to be able to look at my marriage as a strong woman, not a victim. Thank you Amanda for picking me up when I was down."
