Marnie Breecker and Duane Osterlind are licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and Certified Sex Addiction Therapists who cumulatively have over twenty years of experience working with sex addiction, infidelity and betrayal trauma and own respective treatment centers in Los Angeles and Long Beach, CA. After years of watching their clients struggle to rebuild trust and intimacy in their relationships even after a substantial period of abstinence from both sexual acting out as well as ongoing lies, secrets, and manipulation, they joined forces to create a comprehensive program for couples devoted to healing from relational and betrayal trauma.
While the road to recovery is often long with many bumps and detours along the way, Marnie and Duane believe that healing is possible and are passionate about helping couples heal from the devastating impact of betrayal on their relationships. Further, we believe that couples can not only recover and survive but can thrive and ultimately create even deeper connection and intimacy than they had prior to the discovery of betrayal. It’s not easy…but it’s possible!
Our guest today is Marnie Breecker from the Center for Relational Healing in Los Angeles. In this first episode of a two-part series on the topic of relational and betrayal trauma, we will be defining what this type of trauma looks like and its impacts on both partners in the relationship.
