Maybe you or your partner are struggling with the aftermath of infidelity due to a revelation of an affair.
If you are trying to recover from an act of infidelity you may be wondering if your marriage can ever heal. Perhaps the anger, resentment, and grief are getting in the way of moving on, and you want help trusting again.
Or, there may not have been a betrayal in your relationship. But, you fear there could be.
Do you and your partner or spouse have conversations that turn sour for no reason? Does it seem that arguments never get resolved? Or, do they fester between you, resurfacing in the form of harsh criticism and defensiveness?
Have you and your partner slowly drifted apart? It may seem that the passion you once shared has devolved. In fact, you almost feel more like acquaintances than a romantic pair.
Perhaps one of you feels like you are not being heard, validated or appreciated. The loneliness and sense of inadequacy may be overwhelming.

I'm Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I specialize in Marriage Counseling and Affair Recovery based in Miami, FL. My passion is helping committed couples save their marriages in the most effective way possible.
I've spent the last decade helping couples transform their relationships. I have accomplished this through my Marriage Counseling and Affair Recovery programs inspired by the Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
My team of experts and myself strongly believe that "venting sessions" are ineffective with couples. As a result, we offer structured couples therapy in Florida. We offer many programs with assessments, tools, and progress evaluations.
The idea of a seamless marriage without conflict is the stuff of fairy tales. Any couple who has been together long enough can tell you that healthy relationships take work.
Unfortunately, a majority of us were never taught how to maintain a marriage. Or, to communicate effectively and resolve conflict peacefully. Those are skills that we manufacture along the way based on the examples we find in our personal lives. And a lot of times, those examples are flawed—those skills, misinformed.
According to Dr. John Gottman, an expert at the forefront of relationship dynamics, most couples wait around six years to address issues after they first arise.
The high demands of work, lack of personal time, and stress of balancing multiple social roles add a great deal of pressure to any relationship over time. As a result, the behaviors and later damage becomes ingrained and even harder to address.
In marriage counseling sessions, you and your partner can tackle tough issues. Together, you can develop the tools, empathy and awareness you need to be a better partner. Couples therapy gives you a supportive space to voice your feelings. You can find validation and resolve conflict without spiraling into an argument.
If you are coming to me for help, it is likely because you are in a lot of pain. Or, exhausted from trying to fix your relationship yourself. We understand that pain, the frustration of not being able to comprehend your partner’s behavior or step outside of a cycle of conflict.
With our help, you can get to the core of your problems and address them at the source.
You can understand the motivations for negative behavior cycles. And, develop strategies for improving communication skills and peaceful conflict resolution. Throughout the healing process, we will be there as a source of hope and empowerment, guiding you toward greater empathy, awareness and closeness.
Although there needs to be a change in your current situation, we strive to avoid assigning blame or judging anyone. Our job is about fixing and improving your relationship, not pointing fingers. And, because we only treat a few select clients each week, you have the assurance that our dedication to your relationship is always a priority.
Assessment + feedback
ongoing sessions + tools
ongoing sessions + deep work

Our work together begins with an intake session in which your therapist gets to learn about you as a couple. We’ll look at where you are in your relationship. This will include problems you’re facing and what you want to achieve through couples counseling. We will focus on turning those hopes into action.
Afterward, we will assess your relationship using The Gottman Checkup, which is a full couple’s assessment. Using the results of the assessment as a compass, we’ll talk about creating a plan to heal your relationship. Together, we'll get you where you want to be.
At this point, we will work through the issues by giving you tools to transform how you communicate. We then will dive deeper into the core issues to allow genuine and lasting change.
About midway through our sessions, we will do another assessment to make sure we are on the right path. We’ll look at how our sessions are working for you and what adjustments we may need to make. Then, shift and adapt sessions as needed.
Toward the end of our time together, we will do an end-of-process evaluation. During this time, we'll verify that you have reached your goals. Some couples find extra sessions beneficial. However, most reach their goals within 10-15 hours. Our goal is to give you the tools and knowledge to repair and maintain your relationship by yourself after marriage counseling is over.
If you are recovering from an affair, let us validate your pain and comfort you with the knowledge that healing from infidelity is absolutely possible. However, you can’t rush it because trust is not something one earns or develops overnight.
We’ll draw upon the work of Esther Perel and the Gottman Method Couples Therapy to heal, rebuild trust, and rebuild a new and improved relationship.
Although you may be in a great deal of pain right now, I want you to know that it is possible for you to feel closer to and safer with your partner.
Learning how to empathize, respect and support one another isn’t magic—it’s just work. And with your commitment to your partner and counseling for couples, you can repair your relationship, enjoy greater closeness and overcome future challenges.
- Idit & Team
The way we approach therapy is very different from the traditional talk therapy model. We have a very specific structure that incorporates exercises, action and tool development to actively resolve issues with the dynamics of your relationship.
Ongoing venting sessions that leave couples feeling worse than when they arrived. Instead, you get to practice strategies and resolve your issues within the sessions themselves.
Having this first-hand experience of practicing and using these tools means you will have them at your disposal any time.
Our marriage counseling service is for those who have tried it all. You’ve likely tried fixing your relationship issues in many ways. You may have tried reading self-help books, being the agent of change on your own, and you may have even gone to other therapists. But nothing seems to work.
Yet, one thing is apparent: your commitment.
Using that commitment and my expertise, we can give you tools to help generate greater empathy and closeness. You can learn how to repair your sense of trust and communicate in a new way. One that will bring resolution to conflict without defensiveness and criticism.
If you and your partner both feel like it is truly over, we can still offer you honest and compassionate guidance. We will guide you and offer support as you both transition into a new stage of your relationship and life.
But, if you are on this page, there’s likely at least some small part of you that still believes in your relationship.
We will help you tap into that well of hope, doing all I can to help you and your partner preserve your connection. My goal is to give you effective and powerful guidance that you can use to enrich your relationship.
Yes, we all use the Gottman Method Couples Therapy as a basis for our couples therapy process and tools. We like the Gottman method because it is based on research of over 40 years.
All of our team members are trained in the Gottman Method Couples Therapy as well as in their Affair Recovery method. We are trained at the highest levels in this method and use it with most of our couples very successfully.

"We started gaining back the lost respect we had for each-other."
We came with little hope that this will help save our marriage… Shockingly, after the first hour and a half with Idit, we were able to start changing as a couple. We started gaining back the lost respect we had for each-other which was the beginning of a turnaround for us after 7 years of marriage.
