Finding yourself in an abusive or toxic relationship is one of the most frightening experiences that a person can endure. Many people across the gender spectrum find that their relationship, once a haven of love and intimacy, has been replaced with one consisting of physical violence, verbal abuse, gaslighting, or intimate partner violence. This can be a scary and confusing time in a person's life. Throughout the last 7 years, I have worked with countless people who have experienced domestic violence. If you are questioning the health of your relationship and would like more information on what a healthy relationship looks like, don’t hesitate to seek help. You aren’t alone.
