Women's Betrayal Trauma Program

You've been betrayed.
Your pain is real.
You are not alone.

It is surprising how difficult life becomes when you've been betrayed. There are so many unexpected hardships. Regular things feel so much more difficult (like parenting, friendships, socializing, work, sleeping, eating, and others). Even though his behavior isn't your fault, the fallout from his actions impact your mind, feelings, body, spirit, and relationships. 

You long to stop the pain, so you focus on the source of that pain... your partner's addiction. You might tell yourself, "If he just gets over his pornography or sexual addiction, I'll be fine."

It's true that he does need to heal from his addictive behaviors. It's also true that you've been deeply wounded by his choices. You need your own healing.

In the stress and confusion, it's normal to forget your own need to heal and to be heard.

We can help you reclaim your life and heal. 

The LifeStar women's betrayal trauma program guides you out isolation, chaos, and shame. We help you develop strength, clarity, and reestablish safety. 

Here's what you'll gain:
  • Connection with other women who understand what you're going through
  • A clear voice to describe what you need 
  • Four workbooks and 75+ exercises/activities to help you deepen your healing and growth
  • Tools to better cope with overwhelming emotions and thoughts
  • Education on what's happening to you and to him
  • Weekly accountability to help you stay out of unhealthy patterns
Why Group Therapy?

Group therapy may seem like the last thing you'd want to do when dealing with something as embarrassing as betrayal from a pornography or sexual addiction.

 An African proverb states, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." You've probably already tried to cope with the betrayal on your own. Usually for years. We encourage you to try something different and join together with other individuals who are working through the same struggles. 

Brene Brown once said that "to be healed, we have to be seen." Trauma thrives in secrecy and darkness. Letting others support you is the best way to heal from this. Letting yourself be seen in a safe and confidential group setting may be just the thing you need to take your healing to the next level.

Our groups aren't like the ones you see in movies. Our groups are educational, supportive, and facilitated by trained professionals who make sure the group is uplifting, challenging, and moves forward toward deeper healing.

A group therapy approach is like a "classroom for connection." You get to experience what it's like to share without shame. You get to practice using your voice to say what you think, ask for what you need, and share things that you would never be able to share anywhere else without fear of judgment. 

Group support helps you cope with the overwhelming feelings of isolation, rejection, embarrassment, and confusion you experience upon discovering your husband's secret behavior. Being in the company of other women who understand what you're going through is therapeutic and helps bring order to chaos.
