ARE YOU HAVING AN AFFAIR? OR CHEATING ON YOUR PARTNER? OR ENGAGING IN ANYTHING YOU THINK COUNTS AS INFIDELITY?

IF SO, I CAN HELP YOU DEAL WITH YOUR FEELINGS, CLARIFY WHAT YOU WANT, AND MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO.

NO SHAME, NO BLAME, NO JUDGMENTS.

Hi, I’m Dr. Marie Murphy.

I’m a relationship coach with a Ph.D. in the sociology of sexuality. When you’re ready to resolve your infidelity situation in a way that’s truly right for you, I can help you do it. A lot of the “advice” out there for people who are cheating on their partners is little more than thinly veiled judgment, but that’s not what I provide. I provide you with guidance and support that respects the fullness of your humanity, and the complexity of your situation, no matter what you’re doing.

There are three ways we can work together. You can join my secret society/group coaching program, “You’re Not the Only One.” You can grab the self-guided/DIY version of “You’re Not the Only One.” Or we can work together one-on-one, via Zoom. Each of these options is awesome, and you can click here to learn more about all of them.

Let’s be honest: infidelity situations can be really, really exciting and life-affirming.

 If you’re having an affair, you may feel more alive than you have in years. You may be having the best sex you’ve had in a long time – or in your entire life. You may feel more connected to your affair partner than you have to anyone else you’ve ever met. And all of that can be really, really great.

 And infidelity situations can also be really, really, really exhausting and stressful.

Because there’s the lying. The deception. All of the WORK that goes into maintaining a double life. That’s tiring enough, but the confusion, indecision, and worry about getting caught is pretty draining, too.

You probably don’t want to maintain the status quo forever. Because… don’t you want some RELIEF, already? Aren’t you ready to sleep well at night again? Aren’t you ready to have more bandwidth for the rest of your life… instead of devoting so much time and energy to dealing with your infidelity situation? Aren’t you ready to ENJOY your love life/sex life/romantic life instead of worrying about it all the time?

 I know it may seem like a GREAT idea to attempt to avoid dealing with your infidelity situation for as long as possible! 

I know the whole thing may seem INCREDIBLY complicated! I know you may think that you don’t really have any good options in front of you! I know it may seem impossible to figure out what you really want! I know you may wish the whole thing would just magically resolve itself somehow!

Here’s the deal: the likelihood of your situation magically resolving itself in a way that you actually like is pretty darn low.

But if you’re willing to approach your infidelity situation with courage and curiosity, you really can make choices and changes that you feel great about. 

And you don’t have to do it alone. I’m here to help you deal with all of it – one manageable step at a time.

Let's Work Together

AS SEEN IN: 

I was so relieved to find someone who treated me with such respect. I felt very ashamed of what I was doing, and when I sought help from other professionals, I got the sense that they were very uncomfortable hearing the details of my story – even though they tried not to be overtly judgmental. I told Marie everything and she made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Her compassion for me helped me find more compassion for myself. Once I shed the burden of shame and self-loathing, I was able to deal with my relationships in a much healthier way.” – S.H.

 My only regret is that I didn’t start working with Marie sooner. I’d been stuck in limbo for a long time, trying to decide what I wanted to do about my affair. The idea of leaving my marriage terrified me, and I was too scared to think straight. Marie helped me address my fears, and helped me finally be honest about what I really wanted. I ended up deciding to leave my marriage, and I literally cannot believe how good my life is these days. I have a great relationship with my ex, and an amazing relationship with my partner… who used to be my affair partner.” – R.B.
