Jane was sure that the stress of her divorce, which was further delayed by COVID-19 and social distancing in the courts, was causing her to be overly worried and distrustful. Her husband had moved out, but he still seemed to know everything about her. He would mention things when they communicated about the kids that she was sure she had not told him.
Jane mentioned these incidents during her call with her SHALVA therapist, who became very concerned for Jane’s safety. The therapist explained that Jane’s husband may be accessing her emails and texts with his cell phone or computer. They reviewed Jane’s safety plan and added a “tech safety checklist”. Now Jane changes her passwords frequently, never uses “autofill” for her information and checks for apps she didn’t install.
