Domestic Violence

Am I a Victim of Domestic Violence?

Many people suffer from domestic violence without realizing that they can get help, or even that they are victims in an abusive situation.

How do you know if you’re the victim of domestic abuse?

Domestic abuse is defined as one partner or family member taking action to control or overpower you.

Here are some characteristics of different types of domestic violence:

Physical Abuse

  • Hair Pulling
  • Slapping
  • Punching
  • Pushing or Shaking
  • Choking
  • Kicking
  • Forced Sexual Contact

Emotional Abuse

  • Constant insults
  • Putting down your friends and family
  • Name Calling
  • Treating you like a servant

Economic Abuse

  • Preventing you from getting or leaving a job
  • Not giving you access to family bank accounts
  • Not giving you a voice in important financial decisions

How is therapy going to work?

If you are experiencing any of the above warning signs of abuse or domestic violence, you are the victim and you can get help.

At JRM, we offer counseling for couples, families, and individuals. Our experienced and compassionate therapists can help you and your partner recognize patterns of violence and create a plan of safety. Victims of domestic abuse commonly battle anxiety or self-esteem issues. We can also help identify these mental health issues and provide the help you need.

Domestic violence comes in all forms. It could come from a spouse or former spouse, a boyfriend or girlfriend, another family members by blood or marriage, or even through unhealthy parent-child relationships.

No matter your situation, we are here to help you find your way back to a happier, healthier, and safer life.  You deserve to be respected and treated with kindness and love.
