Healing From Intimate Partner Abuse
Updated: Sep 18, 2019
“I am outraged and hurt that this happened to you. You are amazing for taking this difficult journey. My respect and admiration for you go beyond what I can express. I want to help in any way that makes you know that I am
with you and you are safe with me.” - Mary Ellen Mann
Experiencing abuse in an intimate relationship is devastating and can leave you feeling lost and confused. It can lead to anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and general feelings of angst and discontent. You might be
experiencing fear, sleep problems, or flashbacks of your abuse. Counseling can help in healing from abuse and the endless adjustments required following a traumatic relationship or incident. It can also help you
avoid the long-term effects abuse can have on your other relationships and overall mental and physical health.
Counseling following abuse can help you feel cared for and supported as you adjust, find your footing, and heal. It can help you learn boundaries and other skills required for establishing safety and well-being. You get to decide what you share and set the pace for the counseling process. Counseling provides a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental space for you to share and heal.
