In addition to the work I do with sex addicts, I am also passionate about working with partners who have been impacted by their significant other's sex addiction. As such, I have written a book for the partner and spouse of sexually addicted individuals with my colleagues and co-authors Dr. Stefanie Carnes, and Anthony Rodriquez, LCSW, “Facing Heartbreak: Steps to Recovery for the Partners of Sex Addicts”.
Here is a peek into the content:
"When you discover that the person you loved and trusted most in the world is hiding a secret life as a sex addict, the result can be devastating. Facing that heartbreak is what this book is all about. The healing process will take time regardless of whether you decide to stay in the relationship or leave.
Facing Heartbreak weaves real life stories with practical therapeutic advice and specific tasks that gently educate, empower, and guide the partner of the sex addict through a process of recovery. Readers will learn to heal from the heartbreak and betrayal as they move through the work and exercises in order to discover a new hope and create a life that is safe and healed for themselves."
