Power & Control in Relationships

Power & Control in Relationships

Using name calling, anger, and blame to assert power and control over a partner or spouse is emotional manipulation. This form of abuse is common in relationships. It affects people of all races, communities, religions and genders, though women are the most common victims. Left unaddressed, emotional manipulation can lead to physical, emotional, economic and sexual abuse.

Our therapists are trained to help identify abuse and its traumatic effects.

Individuals who are victims of emotional manipulation and abuse often experience self-doubt, hopelessness and anxiety. Our therapists are trained to help identify abuse and its traumatic effects. If these power and control dynamics sound familiar to you, we offer a safe, supportive environment to confront issues associated with emotional abuse, learn communication techniques and set healthy boundaries.
