Addict Partner Therapy in NYC
Counseling for Addict Partners
Discovering your partner’s offensive or bizarre sexual behavior can be a painful experience. It’s demanding and poses many questions:
- What will recovery will look like?
- Should I talk to their family about this issue?
- What an education about this addiction and or disorder do I need?
- Does this create any new family dynamics this creates?
The partner may need help getting past any denial, receive validation of their feelings, and have trust re-established with their partner.
I offer this therapy for the non-offending, non-“addict” partner, as I’ve found that at least some of this is necessary in every case. When the addict is able to own their behaviors, admit their distorted feelings, and sees their self-centered thoughts, this can take some some or all of the misplaced responsibility that has been put on the non addict and begin the healing process.
