How do I move on from the hurt and betrayal when my spouse had an emotional affair and started dating her immediately after leaving. I’m a stay at home mom and we have a 3 year old and 5 month old baby. It has only been 5 weeks and I feel so angry and hurt that he has replaced me with her.

I’m so sorry to hear about your circumstances. Everyone processes an affair and loss of a relationship differently and it is difficult to predict how long it will take to feel whole again. I absolutely encourage you to book an appointment with one of our therapists to address your thoughts, feelings, and experiences surrounding the affair and loss of your relationship.  Meeting with a therapist would provide you with an opportunity to explore what will be most helpful to you moving forward. I also encourage you to surround yourself with loving friends and family during this time so that you don’t have to go through this alone.

All the best,
