As a survivor of domestic abuse, I feel deeply invested in and connected to the cause. I had a troubled childhood, experiencing severe bullying and harrassment from peers, and suffering from Depression, Anxiety, and EDNOS from an early age. Things were never easy at home, and there were many dark days that all members of my family experienced and put one another through. Things were not good. And I was a ball of confusion, anger, angst, and self-harm for a very long time, which caused my mental health to rapidly decline up to my young adulthood. Little me was the embodiment of a black-ink scribble. I moved out of my parents home very young, at age seventeen, and began living with my ex-boyfriend, with whom I stayed for four years. Our relationship was unhealthy, and he was emotionally abusive - sometimes, it progressed to being physically and sexually. I drank heavily to numb the struggle. I developed a sexual addiction. I lost friends, family, and my education. I still struggled with all that I had before; intensified by the rut I had been stuck in with this poisonous person. Two years ago, I began on the path to self-rehabilitation and nurturing. I found the strength and the empowerment to leave the relationship that anchored me in this seemingly-endless black hole of self-destruction and misdirection. Today, I have defeated many of my demons, and have healthier, happier relationships with my family, my friends, and the amazing man who loves me. We all are followed by a little grey cloud, sometimes... but it doesn't have to hover above indefinitely. I've taken my present in to my own hands, and begun making changes for a better future; leaving the past where it belongs, and making peace with my previous selves.
She was really kind and personal, but still very professional and discreet. She responded to me right away and was attentive through the chat. It felt like confiding in a friend. I will talk to her again ASAP and definitely recommend her! Rae is awesome! And she saved my freindship with my BFF.
Was understanding, professional but still personal. Helped me so much
She is as insightful as she is kind and compassionate. I would highly recommend speaking with her!
