Regaining trust, whether it’s after an affair or some other form of betrayal, can be a complex process for any relationship. In this podcast, Dr. Margaret provides the essential steps of healing and regaining trust, specifically after an affair.

What you will walk away with, after listening, is a five-step “how-to” guide, that will help you and your loved one regain the trust you’ve lost, and build a more fulfilling relationship than ever before.
