Welcome to another episode of the Mastering Counseling podcast! This week we’re discussing the keys to working with infidelity in psychotherapy. This is something many clinicians will encounter, and we’ve brought an expert, Jasmine Menser-Lust, LCPC onto the show to share her insight.

In addition to working with clients in a one-on-one setting, she also maintains a comprehensive counseling blog and runs two different support groups, one of which specializes in helping women who have been cheated on process and heal from the trauma of infidelity.
