"Sexual betrayal has little to no rival when it comes to creating emotional chaos. I have sat with hundreds of women (and a few men) who have been devastated by the sexual misbehaviour of their partners. The anger is volcanic. The sorrow is overwhelming. The mistrust seems irreversible. The insecurity is paralyzing. Some partners have been vaguely aware of their spouse's infidelities. Other partners are completely blind-sided by the exposure of sexual secrets. Upon exposure or disclosure, the partner's soul explodes and she develops all the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. She can't stop thinking about it. She experiences a roller coaster of feelings minute by minute and hour by hour. She becomes paranoid and is constantly checking up on the perpetrator by peppering him with questions, looking at his phone, investigating his internet usage, etc. These are almost impossible circumstances to handle without professional help. I am passionate about offering specialized help to these hurting partners." Gerry Pettyjohn MA, CSRT
