Starting Domestic violence therapy

What is Domestic violence therapy?

Domestic violence therapy is a specialized form of counseling that helps victims and their families heal from abusive relationships. It is a crucial component of the broader efforts to address and combat domestic violence, a pattern of abusive behaviors within intimate relationships that can encompass physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or economic abuse.

How does Domestic violence therapy work?

In domestic violence therapy, therapists create a safe and supportive environment. Domestic violence therapy is often part of a broader support network that includes legal assistance, shelters, and community resources. Its aim is to break the cycle of abuse, promote safety, and foster healthier relationships.

Is Domestic violence therapy conducted in person or online?

Domestic violence therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Domestic violence therapy last?

Domestic violence therapy can last for a few weeks, months, or longer, dependent on the individual's exact needs and preferences.

Need more help deciding?

Whether you’re currently in an abusive relationship, you’re just getting out of one, or you’ve been out of it for years, you may not realize how much domestic violence counseling can help. This is not a situation you should be on your own to fix. There is help. Learn how and why counseling can help you.

Start by understanding the cycle of abuse many people deal with

One of the first things you can learn from your counselor is the way the cycle of abuse occurs. This is not true for 100% of abusive relationships but it is true for many. Sometimes, simply knowing that what has occurred to you is well documented and understood can be extremely helpful.

Generally speaking, the cycle of abuse looks like this: your partner argues with you, threatens you, and is otherwise angry; they become abusive through violence, emotional abuse, or sexual abuse; the abuse gets worse over time; there is a honeymoon period in which the person doing the abusing is so sorry and they swear they’ll never do it again.

Does this sound familiar? No matter how sorry your partner may say they are, once the cycle has begun it’s likely to continue until you get help. Remember that there’s nothing you can do for them. They have their own demons to face. Your job is to take care of yourself and get help. That’s what we’re here for.

Why does counseling help?

It’s very common for people to seek counseling yet believe that there’s no way it can help them. They often believe that they can deal with it on their own, or that they’ve been changed in such a way that there’s no way out. This simply isn’t true. A qualified counselor offers a safe space for abuse survivors to talk about all of their emotions from shame to guilt to love for their abusers.
Thriveworks Johnson City Counseling & Coaching is here to help. We don’t treat you like just any other patient. We take the time to get to know you and to understand your unique needs.

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
