Emotional Abuse Counseling in Westminster, CO

Emotional abuse is something that can happen to any person, at any time in their lives. Young children, teenagers and adults of all ages can suffer at the mercy of an emotional abuser. It’s a sad but true fact that so many let the abuse continue for years before they do something about it. There are others who never escape the clutches of their tormentor. Abuse can and often does have devastating consequences. There may not be any physical marks but there are plenty of deep, emotional wounds that cause pain and devastation in the lives of the victims.

If you are a victim of abuse, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Westminster for help. We can offer compassionate emotional abuse counseling, help you heal, and assist you in moving forward with your life. Reach out today to get started.

Definitions of Psychological Abuse

The simplest way to define most forms of emotional abuse is any act that includes the following:

  • Confinement
  • Humiliation
  • Infatuation
  • Intimidation
  • Isolation
  • Verbal assault

These are just some of the common tactics used by an emotional abuser. Abuse of this kind includes any other treatment that aims to diminish a victim’s sense of identity, self-respect and self-worth. For many, emotional abuse therapy of some kind is their best hope for a lasting recovery.

The Effects of Long-Term Abuse

Any form of psychological abuse or chronic verbal aggression is going to have consequences. Those who endure emotional abuse almost always end up with low self-esteem. Over time they will show personality changes too and probably withdraw from society. Quite often, three of the biggest long-term outcomes of continual emotional abuse are:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Suicidal tendencies

It is only once a victim has left their abuser that they can begin the recovery process. After admitting to the problem, breaking away from the situation is the last major hurdle. It’s the only thing that blocks the sufferer from their hopes of healing.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Jakob Rosenthal is the best therapist I've ever encountered! He gets to the bottom line quickly and kindly, and helps me to understand as well as helps me to have healthy coping mechanisms. I am a better person for having seen him.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
