For couples devastated by infidelity, the marriage bed can seem like an untouchable subject, if not absolutely taboo. From comparisons to the affair partner to triggers and reminders or unhelpful and incompetent advice, it can seem impossible to find your way through.

Where do you turn when you feel overwhelmed by sadness, grief, and fear as it relates to sexuality and reclaiming the marriage bed? Who can you trust? Whose advice can you seek?

Speaking from experience, I implore you to run to trained professionals who have navigated this road and healed. Run to those who have experienced the same pain and hurt, but have found a way through the desert and have come out the other side. Run to those who specialize in caring for those affected by this level of trauma with a heart of compassion, kindness, and deep, abiding connection.

Today you'll hear from my close friends and infidelity recovery experts Dr. John Haney, PhD, LPC and Wayne Baker, LPC, CSAT—both of whom help lead our monthly EMS Weekend intensives and also run their own private practices, specializing in healing after an affair, betrayal trauma, and sexual addiction. It can feel impossible to get a grip on yourself, much less on concepts like forgiveness, reconciliation, and reclaiming sexual desire and vulnerability, but I assure you: it's an attainable goal.

Hope Rising 2020

If you're the betrayed spouse, I want to invite you to our 3rd Annual Hope Rising Conference, (now Virtual!) where speakers will speak into your specific situation of infidelity and help guide you through the recovery process. It's not as hopeless as you think.
