When Trust Falters: Personalized Affair Recovery Therapy
Infidelity — perhaps one of the most difficult trials any relationship can face. That choking sensation, the countless questions, the incessant “whys” that play in your mind; every emotion you’re experiencing right now is valid. But what if, amidst this storm, there was a glimmer of hope?
The moment you discovered the betrayal, everything probably felt like it changed irreversibly. Yet, even in the pain, there’s potential — a potential for understanding, healing, and renewed connection.
Hi, I am Kendra Capalbo, LICSW. Lean on me to help you during this difficult time. Allow me to hold the hope when you find that impossible. Let me sit in the anger, the hurt, the pain and the longing with you and I will show you the way.
My Expertise: Your Guide Through the Storm
Here’s the thing: Not every therapist truly understands the intricacies of affair recovery. But with deep experience and training, I stand uniquely qualified. While offering a concierge-level of service, here’s what sets my approach apart:
Experience: Many therapists offer couples therapy, but not all truly specialize in it. I’ve encountered countless scenarios, navigated diverse challenges, and have consistently emerged with couples finding newfound understanding. I work only with couples in my therapy practice.
Knowledge: My commitment to staying up-to-date in therapeutic techniques means that you benefit from the most contemporary strategies. Through regular trainings and workshops, my expertise remains razor-sharp, ensuring you get the very best results.
Understanding: From the emotionally open to the staunchly skeptical, I’ve worked with many types of personalities. This breadth of interaction equips me to bridge the most challenging communication gaps between partners.
Infidelity shatters trust. Yet, with the right guidance, it’s possible to navigate. Here is the process I use with my clients:
Understanding the affair: Here, we’ll confront the pain, seek answers, and build a platform for healing.
Unraveling the root causes: We dive deep, seeking out the underlying issues, ensuring that the recovery is holistic and profound.
Crafting a renewed connection: Armed with insights and renewed commitment, we embark on the journey of rekindling trust and rediscovering intimacy.
Your relationship deserves the utmost care, especially now. My therapeutic sessions provide that sanctuary—a place of safety, understanding, and unfiltered communication.
Comfort, Connection, and Clarity
In my eyes, therapy isn’t just about healing—it’s about feeling truly seen, heard, and valued. Virtual sessions from the comfort of your own space, with the gentle ambiance you’ve crafted for yourself, perhaps with a beloved pet by your side, generate an added level of comfort that, in my experience, translates into real progress more quickly.
That’s the ambiance we’ll foster, ensuring that you’re physically grounded and comfortable so that you feel safe being vulnerable, a necessary component of successful therapy.
Infidelity might be a daunting hurdle, but it can also mark a new chapter—a chapter of profound understanding and deeper connection. Countless couples I have had the pleasure to work with report feeling closer after therapy than at any other time in their relationship, including before the affair. There’s a brighter horizon, and together, we’ll find it.

The entire focus of my practice is working with couples. It is my passion and as such, I have sought out extensive training specifically focused on couples therapy and continue to do so. I carry a smaller caseload and offer the couples I work with more availability, accessibility, and flexibility than is typical with most therapy practices. As a result, the investment is $750 per 90-minute session. Please note that I do not accept insurance.

As Seen In
“While my goal is to make couples therapy as easy as possible, it can be difficult, especially when you’re exhausted and don’t know if you can do it anymore. I challenge the attitudes and actions of my clients in ways other therapists will not, and my clients find that appealing and respond well to it.
Additionally, I work only with clients who I think I can help, and this leads to the high rate of my success. Our initial, no-obligation consultation is a two-way interview so we will all know if moving forward together is wise. Feel free to reach out to me – I am here to assist you in putting things back together again.”
Putting It All Back Together
I was ready to move out and split all assets with my wife. My children asked through my wife to consider going to counseling. I eventually relented and began to research therapists and techniques. I became convinced that if I was going to go through the time and expense of counseling it needed to be a therapist the specifically dealt with couples and used the Gottman technique. Eventually narrowed it down to two, Kendra and Dr. X (not named to be fair). Dr. X had plush office, tight booking schedule, fairly narrow regimentation and appeared to be very successful at what he does. Kendra’s office was sparse and small, a reasonable flexible schedule and indicated flexibility within reason. Kendra said she was glad I was “interviewing” therapists recognizing the need to be open and comfortable. She also did not charge for the initial visit. After back and forth discussion with my wife we decided on Kendra. She worked with us for a couple of months getting to the roots of our problems and help us to be able to communicate with each other. The result is we have not been this happy together in over twenty years. Still a work in progress but certainly heading in the right direction. Bottom line is I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kendra if you are seeking to repair a broken marriage. Does this mean she went easy on me? No, she was fair and unbiased. She picked up on underlying issues and allowed us to work them out.
In short, I can’t recommend Kendra enough and she’s improved my marriage and myself in more ways than I ever thought possible. Kendra is incredibly professional, compassionate, and intuitive. I’ve been seeing her with my husband for over a year now, and we want to keep Kendra as a part of our life as long as possible. We’d been together for about 9 years (married for 5) when we decided to seek some support. Personally, we were seeking better ways to communicate with each other, and didn’t understand how sometimes (despite our best intentions) we ended up missing the mark (offending each other, going to bed angry or confused). We’ve learned the tools to reframe how we think about communication and our relationship, and also so much more. Kendra is a strong couples therapist, not only for her incredible knowledge and experience in the subject, but also her ability to mold the sessions depending on what needs attention. We’ve worked through various crises together (personal, professional, and existential), and more mundane disagreements about chores. Big and small, Kendra is truly talented at working any issues we’ve had. Couples therapy is really hard. It’s hard (for me at least) to admit and ask for help. Sometimes, I feel emotionally drained after a session. But I know the support and therapy Kendra has provided has made my life and my relationship better. Every session, I feel like I become a better person and that is truly priceless. We consistently say it’s the best thing we’ve ever done.
I have been seeing Kendra for quite some time now… what I love most about Kendra is that she is “real”… she tells you like it is and she gives you things to work on and it’s up to us to do the work… I have seen many therapists in my past and she is by far the best one I’ve ever came across… Kendra thank you for making ME see the light at the end of the tunnel again… couldn’t have done it without your guidance!❤️
Kendra is hands down the best therapist that I’ve ever had (okay I’ve only had three, but she was the best – far and away). My partner and I worked through some communication issues with her and our time with her was truly a joy. She helped us learn to communicate better, repair damage after a fight, and made sure that we were keeping our “love tanks” full. I highly recommend Kendra as a couples therapist.
Kendra was prompt to get back to me as soon as I reached out inquiring about couple’s therapy. She is upfront with her pricing and methods. She is so helpful, knowledgeable and a great person to work with. I highly recommend Kendra to anyone considering couples therapy!
Kendra has helped us tremendously. She pointed out where we weren’t communicating well, giving us tips along the way. We slowly made improvements. After a few months, we went from many tears and lots of frustration, to laughter and finding the relationship we had from the years early on in our relationship. I highly recommend Kendra as a couples therapist. She is wonderful, down to earth, intelligent and very talented.
