Domestic Violence

Unfortunately, much more common then one might think. I don’t believe in blaming or shaming, but instead just changing this incredibly destructive cycle of abuse. Many people don’t understand that domestic violence is not just physical but can be verbal or emotional. Domestic violence can be used to intimidate or control someone without ever laying a hand on them. Yelling, breaking things, throwing things, slamming doors, are all more subtle ways partners scare their loved ones. I am comfortable working with individuals, couples, and/or families with this issue in their life.
