Domestic Violence Counseling – Counselors and Therapists in Peachtree City

Too often people who’ve been involved in domestic abuse don’t seek counseling because they believe myths about the process. We’re here to clear those myths up so you know what you can expect – and what not to expect.

Myth #1: Domestic abuse counseling involves reliving bad memories over and over again

For some clients, it’s helpful to discuss the specifics of their abuse. For others, doing so is simply revictimizing themselves over and over again. You can work closely with your counselor to come up with a treatment plan that will help you move forward – not get stuck in the past.

Myth #2: You must be out of the abusive relationship before seeking counseling

Not everyone handles trauma the same way. Not everyone is in a position to get out of a relationship. Your counselor is not here to pressure you into anything or make you feel bad about the decisions you’ve made. They can help you no matter where you are in your life and in the process of healing.

Myth #3: Domestic abuse counseling isn’t helpful

This is one of the most common and harmful myths about domestic abuse. Too often, people simply believe that time is all it takes to heal their wounds. The reality is that without help, there can be long-term consequences including both emotional and physical illnesses.

Myth #4: Physical abuse is the only type of abuse

Some victims of abuse believe that it really wasn’t “that bad” if their abuser didn’t physically strike them. The truth is that there are several types of abuse: physical, sexual, and emotional. They can all ruin lives and they all require assistance from a counselor to work through.

Thriveworks Peachtree City Counseling & Coaching has experience with a wide range of domestic abuse situations. We’re here to help you walk through this difficult time in your life.

of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.

A game changer for me!!

Without going on an on, but I may - - I feel that Stacey Franklin, my counselor, is literally the best kept se...Read more

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
