Have you been considering divorce or separation after finding out about an affair?
Are you struggling to come to terms with the infidelity of a spouse or partner?
Has your trust been violated and you don’t know if you want a divorce, separation, or to stay and try to find a way to work things out?
If you find yourself feeling any of the following:
- Unresolved hostility or resentment towards your partner or former partner
- Upset about your partner’s infidelity, addiction, or other destructive behaviors
- Feeling that your partner or former partner didn’t give your marriage a chance
- Loneliness or worry that you won’t find love again
- Guilt about things you did or didn’t do in your marriage
- Grief or depression about the dissolution of your marriage
- Stress or anxiety about new financial burdens
… then the BTRC can help.
Working with a therapist you can learn to accept and address feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, guilt, or depression. You may choose to pursue individual help or you may feel that relationship or couples therapy is what you need. No matter what you choose, your therapist can help you find positive outlets to deal with your emotions. If you leave these feelings unresolved, they can come out later in life and affect you in unexpected and negative ways. Therapy can help you process these emotions in a healthy way so that you can move past these moments of pain and sorrow and work to move forward in your life, whichever direction you choose.
Therapy can give you the power to reclaim your life by helping you grieve the losses in your relationship, so you can decide how you want to live your life now. It’s painful to go through the discovery of an affair, but you can find a path to healing. While divorce is an option many choose, you have to find the path forward that makes the most sense for you.
This may be the end of one chapter, but it’s also the start of a brand new one. You don’t have to go through this alone. A licensed therapist at the BTRC can help you heal and create the life you want to live. Give our office a call today and let’s set up an appointment to talk.
Group Therapy options ...
In addition to individual therapy, the BTRC offers a support group for women who are healing from betrayal trauma. This therapist lead group provides psychoeducation and a safe space to process with other women.
