About

At Close Connections we’ve been driven by a passion to help people recover from infidelity for over seventeen years. Company founder and clinical therapist David Feder wants you to know: “Close Connections cares about you and all of our clients”.

When responding to the the crises of an affair, we focus on three primary goals.

1. CRISIS: In the “Crisis” stage we help you recover from the immediate fall-out of discovering the affair.

2. AWARENESS & UNDERSTANDING: In the next stage, “Awareness and Understanding”, we focus on meanings and motives. We also begin to focus on relational empowerment (as opposed to individual empowerment) with your spouse or partner, which sets the stage for the next sep.

3. VISION: And we end in the final stage that I call “Vision”. Here, for those couples who stay together, we help you create the relationship you always wanted to have. For those who choose to end the relationship, our focus is to help you move on from the affair more whole and complete. We base this on VISION, a concept I created that provides the road map for healthy living.

At Close Connections we are committed to reducing residual animosity that exists between you and your spouse. This benefits both you and your children. We consider a divorce rate of more than 40% staggering and we at Close Connections believe that staying together is a real alternative to separation, for those who want to consider that option. For those who choose to separate, we are determined to reduce the number of high-conflict divorces that often accompany infidelity.

Our state-of-the-art Road Map for Recovery (RMR) includes education, insight-oriented therapy, coaching, sensitivity and empowerment. Those who have been through our system grow by becoming the person they always intended to be and many of our alumnae have the life they always hoped to have. We are available when you need us. We do not believe in waiting lists. You will find that our services are provided with the right combination of understanding, compassion and a sincere desire to help you feel better.

You will survive infidelity. You have no choice. The question is how?
