Starting Domestic violence therapy

What is Domestic violence therapy?

Help for Domestic Violence in Pflugerville, TX—Counseling and Therapy

Thriveworks Pflugerville offers therapy for domestic violence victims. Our counselors understand the challenges of domestic violence and have helped many clients find safety.

The particular context of abuse is unique to each couple’s circumstances, but domestic violence usually following a general abusive cycle:

The Honeymoon Phase: Violent relationships rarely begin with abusive behavior. In fact, they usually begin quite the opposite—as a fairytale, too good to be true. Unfortunately, relationships that seem too good to be true usually are. The honeymoon phase is what can make domestic violence so bewildering and traumatic.

The Tension Building Phase: After the honeymoon phase, tension will become a part of daily interactions. The violent partner may begin blaming the victim for any inconvenience in life. The victim may start to shield the violent partner from stress, try to please the violent partner, and/or fulfill excessive demands in hope of diffusing the tension and preventing the violence.

The Abusive Phase: The violence, however, is never the victim’s fault, and therefore, the victim can never appease the perpetrator enough. The violence may come in a variety of forms, including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse.

The abusive cycle can take minutes, hours, days, or possibly years. Once the abuse has been perpetrated, the couple often returns to the honeymoon phase, during which, the perpetrator may convince the victim that the violence will not continue. The violent partner may promise, “that was the last time…it will never happen again…this isn’t us.” However, the abusive cycle will almost inevitably continue without substantial intervention.

Seriousness of Domestic Abuse

The home should be a safe place, but domestic abuse turns it into a place where physical, sexual, and/or verbal violence can erupt at any moment. Living in such an environment has significant and long-term effects because it can change a person’s brain. Abuse engages the body’s natural fight-or-flight response, and the brain releases stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline.

Is This a Violent Relationship?

Domestic violence can begin in subtle ways that are escalated. Often, the first signs of domestic abuse are about control—one partner trying to dominate or manipulate what the other wears, says, feels, thinks, does, and on and on. The following are common warning signs of domestic abuse:

  • Using derogatory names
  • Discouraging you from spending time with friends or family
  • Subtly putting down
  • Forcing you into sex or sexual acts where you feel uncomfortable or have said, “no.”
  • Threatening you
  • Hurting you, your kids, or your pets
  • Attempting to take away agency, the ability to make decisions—such as how to spend money, where to go, what to wear, and more
  • Discouraging you from working or going to school
  • Blaming you for their behavior

I have used many different counselors in different cities/states and I have had a phenomenal experience with Deissy Rosenbaum. She has helped with a broad range of issues from cultural assimilation to ADHD to reprocessing childhood trauma through a unique method of EMDR therapy. Because I had her support, I not only made it through a tough year (2020) but am thriving and have made progress in so many areas of my life.

I have been seeing therapists for about 20 years now, with little success. Until I met with Deissy Rosenbaum. It is obvious to me that Deissy deeply cares about my well-being; she combines complex techniques that I have never seen before, resulting in remarkable success. I have been able to remember things from my youth that were long suppressed, and feel much more whole inside. She is very humble, but her talents are quite impressive. I would describe her as patient, soft-spoken, and sensitive to my feelings. I could particularly see her working well with children, and in reality, getting in touch with my inner child was part of what really helped me. She is very easy to talk to, and I’m really happy I found her.

Words cannot express how awesome Grichell is!! I’ve seen a few therapists in my life, and by far she has been the only one to quickly figure out a way to explain things to me that make sense. There’s never any judgement, only direct advice and counsel that has helped me so much. I actually enjoy and look forward to my time with her! If you are told she has no openings, just know, she is well worth the wait in line.

I had the pleasure of using Alison Riley for my councilor. She's absolutely wonderful! She made me feel comfortable right away, which isn't the easiest thing to do. I was able to see things that I had closed myself off to for the longest, and she was even willing to have some of people I needed to talk to there so it was a neutral environment. I truly appreciate all the support she's provided. I feel like I'm much calmer now and much less anxious. Thank you so much, Alison!
