"Dorothy emphasized with how distraught I was about having found out about my partner's sex addiction. She gave me time to breathe and center. At the same time, she also held me responsible for my own life, decisions and feelings. With skillful compassion, she helped me find myself and make a satisfying life for myself whether my partner was acting out or not."
