In my more then 15years of professional experience I had helped many individuals to achieve their therapeutic goals and desired outcomes.
Here are some examples;
A couple with 2 young children in their 14 yers of marriage,came to me
To overcome betrayal issue.
First. They both strived to keep their marriage, especially having 2 little children. It was a lot at sake.
Second. We worked on their underlining issues that caused the betrayal.

Such; CBT, DBT,FSBT and Narrative approaches together we started gradually to learn on how to build and support the trust between two.
Good news, they are married. In addition
They learn additional skills on how to overcome difficulties in their communication and relationship with each other.

15 years later, the husband decided to come beck.
In addition he had bipolar disorder, which caused him some difficulty in his marital and social interactions.
The wife felt that she is willing to rebuild their relationship, where their children had very difficult time to except new statuesque.

After hospital discharge. She reached out to me.
I started working with the Young teen with DBT, CBT, EFT interventions and at the same time referred her to Dr.Amen, well known Psychatrist.

They all worked together in family buisness, that the husband with the help of his wife build.
Most of their life's they and their mother felt, that their father was emotionally abusive, a specially toward the wife and the older son.
