Why does he do that? Turning your words around and creating confusion and a sense that you must be wrong all the time. You feel misunderstood, not heard, and wonder why he doesn't seem to get it. Or perhaps it's more obvious, yes, he hits, slaps, pushes - or other physical ways of hurting you. Or maybe he controls every aspect of your life, telling you where to be and when and how you must act and talk. Let's talk, I can help you search your heart to make decisions and choices to support you!
Interpersonal Neurobiology takes into account the functions of our brain, nervous system, and our emotional states to help make all these parts of ourselves work together.

Contemplative therapy addresses our need for mindfulness and spirituality. Acknowledging and creating a place of safety, trust, and a place where you can be free to share whatever is on your mind with no judgement.

You may feel confused and question your own thoughts, maybe you wonder, "is this really abuse, or am I being too sensitive"? Abuse happens in many contexts, abuse in your family of origin, in your intimate partner relationships, in the workplace, and more. Making sense of your experiences and making a connection with what you really know to be true is central to dealing with abuse. Abuse is traumatic. It leaves us feeling disconnected and makes it hard to engage in life.
