Love Is Kind- Emotional Abuse Therapy in Colorado Springs, CO

Emotional Abuse Therapy in Stoughton, MA—Therapists and Counselors at Thriveworks

Love: between intimate partners, family members, friends, religious leaders, coworkers, should be kind, uplifting, and patient. Yet 48.4% of women and 48.8% of men experience psychological aggression by an intimate partner sometime in their life. That’s nearly half of the U.S. population who doesn’t have the caring relationship they deserve and instead carry the terrifying scars of an emotional abusive relationship. Although no one can change the past, our therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Stoughton can mend the wounds that cut deep and get you back on track to a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle, full of love and respect for yourself and others.

Emotional Abuse: What Is It?

All relationships have conflicts; this is normal and healthy. The signs of emotional abuse may appear as typical bumps in the road of any relationship. However, underneath it is a battle to win control, with manipulative tactics. Red flags that may signify emotional abuse in a relationship include:

  1. Ridiculing, embarrassing, and condemning in public
  2. Taking no interest in other’s opinions and emotions
  3. Objectifying people
  4. Threatening, intimidating or guilt-tripping others to get what they want
  5. Coveting the other partner and making them a possession
  6. Making them think they are crazy (called gaslighting)
  7. Showing uncontrollable anger at the slightest misstep of partner
  8. Destroying a prized possession of partner (harming a favorite family picture)
  9. Denying requests to vital resources such as money, transportation, food, or health care
  10.  Falsely accusing (“You broke…” when they know you did not)
  11. Withholding love to get what they want
  12. Guilt tripping them for spending time with loved ones
  13. Refusing to accept responsibility for their actions

These red flags have one thing in common: control. Emotional abuse happens when one partner tries to dominate another. Often, these behaviors start out subtle, so you may not realize you are being manipulated until the relationship is already detrimentally abusive. But there is still hope! Our Thriveworks Stoughton therapists and counselors know the signs of emotional abuse and how to help you rebuild the amazing empire of your heart, soul and mind.

Nervous newbie that found real help!

I had been debating seeking help for my depression and anxiety for a while but I was very nervous. Luckily for me, I found this Stoughton location while researching online, it was conveniently located and reasonably priced, so I went for it. I made an appointment with Dylan and showed up still uneasy about seeking help, but he sensed that and immediately started to put me at ease. By the end of the appointment, I felt at ease and hopeful for the first time in a long time. I don't know what the end result will be but I am definitely going to continue to come and would highly recommend Dylan and this location to anyone who is looking for help! I am sincerely grateful for the help Dylan provided and hope this post is helpful to anyone who is on the fence about seeking aid. Best regards, Alex
