Sometimes after we have left physically abusive or violent relationships, we still have past trauma that can affect us in our ability to form new relationships. In cases like this, domestic violence counseling can help us triumph over negative trauma from the past and move forward in our lives with more productive and joyful experiences in life.
Abuse can be physical, verbal, and emotional. It’s important to understand what type of behavior constitutes abuse, and what doesn’t.
