As a mental health counselor in private practice, I often get confronted with the emotional aftermath of infidelity. The devastation is obvious when a betrayed partner walks into my office. Finding out your intimate partner has cheated feels like the floor has been swept from under your feet. Nothing seems the same anymore. Normal daily tasks become a heavy burden and the person is on survival mood. Finding out that the person you love has lied to you, kept secrets from you and shared intimacy with others hurts deeply. Trust is now non-existent and this all can lead to a depressed mood.
