Solimar is a master’s level mental health counselor. For the last 10 years she has been helping women hurt by infidelity, pornography and sexual addiction in their
marriages. She is passionate about helping people find a true sense of identity,
helping them find their voice, and providing skills that will empower them to navigate
life’s challenges and hurts with a sense of purpose, meaning, and hope.
For spouses who have been betrayed, life, as you know it, has been turned upside down. Your spouse's betrayal through a secret life of sexual addiction, pornography, and infidelity, has left you shattered into pieces, out of control, like you are about to lose your mind. You feel confused and afraid about your future. Overwhelmed by feelings of rage, shame and loneliness, you wonder: What now? Do I stay or leave this relationship? Where do I go from here?
Or maybe, your early years were tarnished by sexual abuse. You ask yourself: Is it worth facing the pain that you have kept hidden during years? You need to regain a sense of self-control, safety and “peace amidst the storm”. You thirst for a better grasp of your situation. You want to be seen, to trust again, and to feel loved and valued.
Ultimately, you long for hope. I hear you and I understand it. I want you to know: You are not alone. I will be honored to walk by your side as you wrestle with life, untangle whatever is going on, and make critical decisions.
I will give you skills and tools that will empower you to move forward in your healing journey. It will not be easy, but I assure you that you can overcome this. Let’s walk this path together!
