Therapy Issues

Emotional Abuse

Right now, as a result of your unresolved emotional abuse, you may be experiencing…

  • Shame and low self-esteem, a sense that you’re worthless.
  • Deeply internalized voices and scripts that tell you how terrible you are.
  • Depression, anxiety, and painful mood states. 
  • Poor boundaries and challenges standing up for yourself.

You’re realizing that the emotional abuse you went through is getting in the way of your life…

  • You can’t think well of yourself and it’s stopping you from advancing your career.
  • You seem to only attract manipulative people into your life, not healthy relationships.
  • You’re coping with the painful feelings inside of you by making poor, self-destructive choices. 
  • You don’t feel confident at all and this seems to radiate off of you. 
  • You long to make certain choices to support you and your loved ones, but you can’t find the esteem and motivation to do so…

You’re wondering…

  • Is what I went through actually emotional abuse? Was it just conflict or relationship strain?
  • Why can’t I seem to get over it? Why is what they said still impacting me so much?
  • I feel too broken to be helped and I don’t feel worthy of asking for help. Is it too late for me?
  • Can someone as “broken” as I feel actually have a happy and good life?
  • Can trauma therapy actually help me recover from emotional abuse?

You’re longing for…

  • Self-confidence and self-esteem, the kind you admire in other women you see from afar or in the movies. 
  • That abusive, relentless inner critic voice inside of you to be quiet, to be able to think more supportive and kind thoughts about yourself.
  • An ability to wake up and not feel fearful and doubtful all day long.
  • The skills and tools to set boundaries with unkind, unsupportive people in your life.
  • Belief and faith in yourself to take the action steps you know will lead you to the life you want to live.

What you’re longing for is possible.

At Evergreen Counseling, we have a staff of seasoned, evidence-based therapists skilled in treating emotional abuse.

How we can help you

By pursuing therapy for emotional abuse, you can imagine the following:

Relentless, critical inner voices in your head telling you over and over again how bad you are.

Those voices are quieter, if not gone. Replaced by kinder, more supportive inner voices.

You rely on self-sabotaging behaviors to help numb painful feelings. Dependency patterns. Compulsive behaviors. Choices with negative impacts.

You can face and tolerate your feelings. You can deal with them more skillfully.

Poor boundaries, either being taken advantage of or walling off all relationships to protect yourself.

The ability to discern who and what is a healthy relationship and to who up in healthy, functional, and boundaried ways yourself.

You feel depressed, anxious, and totally powerless over your life.
