Why We Can Help

Want to know why you should choose Affair Recovery?
We’re discreet.

At Affair Recovery, all of our programs are safe, confidential and anonymous. Even the group support is done on a first-name only basis, often via private conference calls that can be made from any phone. When we send you an email, it will come from hope-now.com, because we know you probably don’t want the word “affair” showing up in your inbox. We do everything we can to respect your privacy during this difficult time.

We specialize in infidelity recovery.

Our company founder, Rick Reynolds, LCSW, holds a Master's Degree in Social Work and is a clinical member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Our programs are designed by professional therapists, many of whom have also personally experienced the devastation of infidelity.

We’ve really been there.

Our founder, Rick, and many other members of our professional staff and mentor community have had personal experience with the pain and trauma of infidelity. Whether from the perspective of the unfaithful spouse or the betrayed spouse, many of us have walked in your shoes, and we understand the anger, confusion, and heartbreak caused by infidelity. The best way to save a marriage after infidelity is to have the guidance of someone who has already done it.

We’ve helped many others.

Since 1994, when Rick first began to develop the EMS Online curriculum in his private counseling practice, it has helped thousands of people all over the world salvage their marriages and recover from an affair. Third-party research has verified that participants of Affair Recovery’s courses report statistically significant increased levels of marital satisfaction and decreased levels of anxiety and depression (1).

We’ve got the right tools.

Our EMS Online and Harboring Hope curriculums offer a time-proven and research-validated step-by-step path to healing. Through the years, we’ve perfected the process of helping those in crisis break down the anger and mistrust to rebuild communication and understanding.

We put a team behind you.

Our programs draw their greatest power from the strength of small group support, because those who are currently in the same circumstances truly understand. By providing support as well as receiving it, couples and individuals get new insights, perspectives, and wisdoms.
