Registered Social Worker, MSW, ACSW, CLE, PMH-C
I have worked with various forms of trauma including emotional abuse. Often clients seek me out and are unaware of negative relationship patterns or feel as though they have to offer themselves in relationship in a way that doesn’t honor themselves. You are allowed to set boundaries and deserve to have them respected. Let’s figure out what works best for you and how to set yourself up for more peace when navigating relationships with your loved ones.

Victims of emotional abuse may feel like they have completely lost themselves. When we experience psychological abuse, there are severe ramifications that impact our ability to function holistically in our lives. To make matters worse, emotional abuse is often invisible to others. Our partner may behave differently in front our friends and family, but behind closed doors they are bullies and tyrants. This leads to feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and shame. As the confusion and disorientation of this experience sets in, victims start to distrust their own healthy instincts and may even blame themselves for their partners abusive behaviors. The cycle of psychological beatings is a soul killing process. Whether you experienced emotional abuse as a child or are currently living with this traumatic experience, there is hope, joy, and empowerment to be found beyond the pain and suffering. Call or email me today to schedule a free 20-minute consultation.

Psychologist, Psy.D, M.A.
Sometimes it is difficult to discern emotional abuse when people find themselves mired in this situation. It is really critical to be able to safely establish a new perspective. Through the therapeutic alliance we can cultivate new tools and possibilities to change this painful dynamic.
23 Years Experience
Counselor/Therapist, JD/MBA, AMFT
Did you grow up in a challenging household with a parent/parents who were narcissist, controlling, alcohol abusers, not supportive or neglectful? Early childhood experiences can shape how we think and behave as adults, often in ways that are not helpful, such as finding partners who are toxic, over-thinking and over-analyzing, difficulty making decisions, difficulty knowing what we want, people pleasing (saying yes when you really want to say no), poor boundaries and focusing too much on others instead of ourselves. The good news is that change is possible. And, I can assist you on the journey towards this change. I bring my therapy training to sessions, as well as my life experiences and 12 years in Alanon.

Marriage and Family Therapist, M.A., LMFT #119163
Emotional abuse at the hands of a loved one leaves a scar that no one can see. When you’ve been manipulated, gaslit, and covertly insulted for months or years you can start to lose your sense of self. Even when you have found the strength to end a relationship where you were treated this way, it haunts you. You have difficulty trusting or joyfully engaging with new people. Or maybe this is a relationship that it is not so simple to end. Perhaps it’s a relationship with a parent or sibling. You’re exhausted. You’re tired of walking on eggshells. Whether it’s time to heal from a former relationship, set some boundaries in an existing one, or bring a relationship to an end, therapy can provide you a safe place to process your experiences. Once you get to know yourself again, you can set some much-needed boundaries or say goodbye, whatever is right for you.
