A Note From Dr. Gunzburg

By working with me as your marriage counselor, or therapist, in Baltimore, you can benefit from my experience. You know how your situation feels to you but you cannot place your experience in perspective related to its severity or prognosis.

From what I can gather regarding other therapists with similar years of experience, we have considerable overlap in what we tell clients in troubled relationships. Infidelity is a niche under troubled marriages. Some of the usual treatment designs and considerations need to be modified specifically for a marriage damaged by an affair. These specific treatment approaches for infidelity are also influenced by the therapist’s personal experiences (married, not married, divorced, had an affair, didn’t have an affair, was injured by an affair, never been cheated on, etc.) and personal and professional values and ethics.
