Benefits of Group Therapy

“Life is a spark between two identical voids, the darkness before birth and the one after death.” -Irvin Yalom

Besides offering a more economical way to participate in the counseling process, group therapy is unique for several reasons. Often times in places where one may personally become stuck, or lack the insight that is needed to move forward to heal, grow or take action, he/she can easily see the blind spot in someone else.

Example: if a betrayed spouse hears a counselor say that it’s not her fault her husband cheated, the client may struggle to believe and internalize this truth. Yet, if in a group setting, this client hears another betrayed spouse’s story, she will easily recognize that the infidelity was not that other group members’ fault, the counselor will pick this up and ask the client, “great, now can you apply this truth to yourself as well?”

When you take the above situation, and repeat the scenario with a group over time, it is common to see healing and growth in a much faster time period.

Lastly, we heal in relationship, not isolation. The counselor/client dyad often provides the first place to model and work out dysfunctional patterns of relating and broken trust from critical past interpersonal relationships (including but not limited to the intimate partner betrayal).

Group therapy then gives a more real-life situation to practice new patterns of relating, rebuilding trust in relationships, accountability and support. The safety of having a counselor present helps to direct the flow, and manage any miscommunications or intense emotional states that may come up.

The group counselor also provides the various psycho-educational topics and related exercises. In group, these relationships also are meant to take “off-line” into the real world, unlike the therapist/client relationship, which needs to maintain specific boundaries.

The Purpose of Group Therapy Activities

The purpose of group therapy is to stabilize mental and bodily stress, explore and validate the inner-self, connect the impact of unresolved past events on current feeling-states and behaviors, and develop new ways of coping with negative emotions.

Amanda Asproni, Masters of Arts in Clincial Mental Health Counseling,started Healing Affairs after her own experience with marital infidelity brought her to the realization that affair recovery resources are few and far between.

…by working out their problems in a small group, they should be able to face the larger group, i.e., their world, in an easier manner.”

Women’s Relationship Issues Workshop


Betrayal trauma and overcoming the pain of infidelity is often healed through the safe expression of shared experiences with others in similar circumstances. It is also a more economical way to work with a trained professional in the specialized field of affair recovery and/or sexual addiction.

This group is a monthly workshop exploring aspects such as boundaries, healing trauma & self-care. It includes psychoeducational material on topics such as sexual addiction, dysfunctional relationship patterns, narcissism and intimacy disorders.

Men’s Sexual Addiction Recovery Workshop


Men who desire to move from a place of shame and secrecy to integrity and genuine relationships know that learning to develop and maintain strong bonds of friendship with other safe men is a paramount and critical aspect of recovery and long-term sobriety.

Men working individual therapy are encouraged to join the group as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. The group meets every other week and is appropriate for those looking for a post in-patient treatment group and also works as an ancillary support group for men working local SLAA (sex and love addicts anonymous) or SAA (sex addicts anonymous) 12-step recovery.

Because group therapy comes with the safety and guidance of a trained psychotherapist experienced in the realm of sexual addiction recovery and trauma, it allows crosstalk amongst its group members to deepen the relational bonds and further builds trust. This group will work on dysfunctional family of origin patterns, intimacy building, boundaries, empathy development and PTSD.

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.”
DonnaAgriculturer, Missouri

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."
Greg & MarieOffice Manager & Accountant, Texas

Keeping Things Down-to-Earth

“Amanda is very real, honest, and easy to talk with because she is a great listener and empathizer. I’m extremely grateful to have her…someone who can speak positively into my life.”
JoyMother of 4 & Small Business Owner, Texas

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."
Lisa (Mother of 5 and CEO), Iowa
