Amy Lewis Bear, MS, LPC, NCC, DCC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta
Are you in a relationship with a controlling, manipulative life partner or other family member? Maybe you're trying to help a son, daughter or other loved one who has an emotionally abusive partner. One difficult family member can cause enormous pain and turmoil for the entire family. I specialize in treating individuals, couples, and families who are struggling with the devastating effects of emotional abuse. Here is your chance to stop the madness and work towards healing and living a more joyful life.
Emotional abuse tactics, such as blaming, criticizing, and gaslighting, profoundly effect the victim's self-esteem and cause anxiety and depression. l will empower you to recognize and draw strong boundaries against people who use these tactics. I will help you understand and put into practice what it takes to achieve a more fulfilling relationship.
I have had personal experience with emotional abuse, so I understand what you may be feeling. My book, From Charm to Harm: The Guide to Spotting, Naming, and Stopping Emotional Abuse in Intimate Relationships (2014), provides you with a way to protect yourself and your loved ones.
