You're out of an abusive relationship, but now you don't know what to do. You don't trust yourself and question how you got to this point.

About My Clients

My clients worry they will never trust anyone again, including themselves. They have been trying to avoid everything that reminds them of their abusive relationship but it is not working for them. They are overwhelmed, scared, depressed, guilty, and ashamed. Things that used to be fun make them nervous now. They feel disconnected from the world and that nobody understands them. They want to have a relationship again but are worried about getting into another abusive relationship.

My Background and Approach

You want to be in control of yourself and your life again. I've worked with many survivors of domestic abuse and have a method for helping you get to exactly that point. We start with evaluating how it has impacted you and what is keeping you stuck. If you stick with me you'll learn why you stayed and what made it so hard to leave. You'll get tools to regain control of your feelings, thoughts, and actions. We'll face your trauma together and you'll learn just how strong you really are! You'll start to reconnect with people and learn to trust yourself again. Many of my clients think their problem isn't "big enough" to need help. They think about all the injustices in the world, such as family separations, and say "it's not that bad." They feel guilty about asking for help for something that feels small in comparison. But they find themselves too overwhelmed to be taking action on those things that matter to them. It is okay to not be okay, get help, and then act.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm in the majority group in many ways (white, middle class, heterosexual, cisgender). I've found myself in the minority being female, agnostic, blue collar/working class at times, and when I've purposefully put myself in spaces where I haven't been the majority. I've lived abroad where I was immersed in my second language and stood out as different. I don't know what it feels like to be you, and I recognize that fact. I am not perfect, none of us are. If I say or do something that feels wrong to you, especially if it feels like as "ism" or microaggression, I want your feedback if you are comfortable giving it. My goal is always to acknowledge the wrong I've done, genuinely apologize, and express what I will do to avoid making the same mistake again. What happened matters, but it doesn't have to define you.
