If you have been betrayed by your partner, you have questions. What is sexual addiction? How can my partner be treated? Why did this happen? You feel shattered by an experience you may or may not have seen coming. The guilt, confusion, shame and gaslighting-- you are not the cause of it, you are a party to it. You may even ask yourself "Am I crazy? Am I blowing things out of proportion or making this up?"
We will help you manage this crisis and develop a plan aimed to keep you feeling safe, supported and back on track. With individual partner therapy, you can find answers, as well as regain a sense of the control that was taken from you.
In sharing your story with a knowledgeable, empathetic therapist, you will realize you are not alone or helpless, and your feelings are valid.
At The Chicago Center for Sex & Wellbeing, we support a commitment to recovery, and we offer a variety of services for partners of addicts. Each program is targeted at helping you understand why you feel and behave the way you do and how you can restore your emotional, sexual, physical and spiritual wellbeing.
Just as no two people are the same, neither is their healing. Every client works with a primary therapist to determine what they need to move forward in the healing and recovery process. Whether you choose to remain with your partner or leave the relationship we are here to assist you.
If you are in crisis and seeking answers or support, don’t hesitate to contact CCSW to schedule an intake appointment.
