Mapping out a plan begins by taking a look at the long, complicated history of your relationship. As past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, we can develop a strategic understanding of his style of conflict and take proactive steps to strengthen your boundaries, protect yourself from false allegations, and advocate for your preferred legal resolution.
Each client comes to me with a different set of needs, ready to work together and mesh our combined expertise. When conflict is high, a client’s support needs may be primarily around validation, documentation and communication with any involved parties. When conflict is reduced, either temporarily or due to effective measures being in place, support may be more forward-looking and build on past learning opportunities and growth.
At the end of the day (or year, or lifetime), your disordered ex won’t do the work necessary to allow you both to move on with your lives. But your personal journey to re-envision and reclaim control of your life is rewarding work that will help you protect yourself and your children so you can flourish.
