Very few things in life cut as deep as betrayal from an intimate partner. It has the ability to create disorientation and PTSD symptoms that can be acute and severe. It’s also often extremely isolating due to the fear of sharing it with others. Trying to heal alone can lead to increased PTSD symptoms, confusion, and a loss of sense of self.


Join our newest group for betrayed partners to learn how to help accelerate your healing and find support so that you don’t have to go through this alone.


Women's Betrayal Group led by Katya Gruzglina

Monday Nights 5:30pm - 7:00pm

Virtual Meetings (Zoom)

Beginning on April 8, 2024


The group meets weekly and is $100 per group.

An individual session with the group leader is required to ensure that it is a good fit for all participants.


  • Identify and understand the types of reactions to trauma that you are experiencing

  • Triggers are not your enemy

  • Who to tell your story to and who not

  • Tools to help you when you feel activated

  • How to identify the stages of healing from betrayal trauma

  • Where trusting helps and where it is dangerous

  • How to prioritize your healing and how to get out of the “if he just does x,y, or z, I’ll be okay,” fantasy.

  • The answers to the “Why?” questions

  • What you can expect from your partner during this process


  • Having a supportive group who are going through a similar experience 

  • Stepping out of isolation and shame

  • Learning to trust yourself again

  • Emerging from seeing danger everywhere

  • Healing from deep grief

  • Healing in a profound way

The group will be led by Katya Gruzglina, MFT

Katya (MFT-LP) believes that a therapist-client relationship grounded in compassion and trust forms the basis of healing and provides a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and identities. She is LGBTQIA+ affirming, sex-positive, trauma-informed, and provides care to couples that are curious about non-traditional relationship structures. She recognizes the importance of acknowledging and validating the diverse experiences of each individual and tailors her therapeutic approach to meet their specific needs.


Katya received her Masters of Psychology with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy from Our Lady of The Lake University. She completed an internship at the Michael E. Debakey VA Medical Center where she worked with military veterans and their partners to help them navigate the effects of trauma, anxiety, and depression on their relationships, while helping them build richer, more meaningful connections with one another and themselves.

Katya’s approach is rooted in experiential models like Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS) as well as postmodern practices like Narrative Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. She also works somatically with clients to bring more awareness into how emotions present themselves in the body.


Katya helps individuals and couples build awareness of the feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that might be leaving them feeling stuck, meets them with curiosity, and empowers clients towards a radically improved life.

What makes us different?


We don’t discuss intimacy

We do intimacy.


Learning to be relational comes from being relational.


The intimate relationship is an integral part of the healing experience. 


Our staff works intimately with our individual clients to help them discover and see their authentic selves.


We help couples develop or deepen their intimacy on all levels and to remove the obstacles that hold them back from feeling more intimately connected.


Our Intimacy Groups are living, breathing experiences of intimacy


. For us, the relationship between therapist and client is sacred.

It’s more than someone to tell stories to.

It’s more than “a friend who listens.”

It’s more than someone telling you to do “self care.”

It’s more than someone who gives you advice.


The relationship with your therapist should be one of the most intimate experiences of your life

At the Center for Intimacy Recovery it is.
