Relationship Recovery from Sex Addiction
The ability to create safety, honesty, and respect in a relationship is essential to ongoing couple recovery from sex addiction. Replacing negative relationship patterns with healthy patterns requires rigorous structure, honesty, and tools. Through guidance from specialized marriage and family therapists, we will introduce structure, provide a safe place where you can be honest, and introduce tools that can change your unwanted patterns, renewing your relationship.
Old patterns need to be identified and broken down. Through education, talk therapy, and mindfulness, we will help you develop new relationship skills so you can rebuild positive patterns, which will allow you and your spouse to reconnect and feel the fulfillment that comes from a healthy relationship.
Addiction and/or betrayal trauma and intimacy can’t co-exist. Before we engage in couples recovery, each partner needs to be assessed and treated for their individual needs. Once each individual is prepared to work on the relationship, couples counseling will begin.
In this four-week couples group therapy setting, you will learn how to increase these qualities through a structured format that offers information and opportunities to practice the following:
How your goals as a couple and your goals as individuals support/conflict with each other
How to create space for differences and practice respectful conflict resolution
What your families of origin taught you about relationships
How to nurture your relationship and make amends for momentary slips in safety, honesty, respect
