Emotional abuse is when someone controls your ability to make your own decisions through words meant to diminish you as a person or by emotionally making you bend to their will. It damages your belief in yourself. Although it may become physical abuse, it is sometimes more dangerous. Your wounds are on the inside. You may feel like you have been beaten because of the way you were treated. You need healing. 

I would like to know your most pressing need. Take a moment to tell me what is most upsetting  for you. What question do you unrelentingly search for an answer to in an emotionally abusive relationship or if you have come out of one and find that your emotions are still reacting to the abuse. Please fill out the form below. 


If you are having trouble in a relationship that is not abusive, understanding how you naturally handle a situation and how the other person naturally handles the same situation helps you realize that you are okay. There is nothing wrong with you. Recognizing the way the other person naturally thinks means it is okay for him. It just means there is a clash. You begin to understand what is going on and can work things out. We can discuss your thoughts and feelings and get a clearer picture of a solution.


You were born with potential. You have talents and traits that will bring you happiness when you work with them, develop them, help others because of them. You develop understanding. You make healthy choices, achieve goals you want, recognize how much value you have as a well rounded person. When you are working on your heart’s desire, you have more energy, extreme satisfaction and happiness. Your life has meaning.
