Intimate Partner Violence

Find Your Counselor


Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is violence or psychological intimidation that occurs within the context of a marriage or a romantic relationship.

First thing’s first: If you are feeling unsafe, or think you may be currently experiencing abuse, please get help. If you are currently in an abusive relationship, know that this does not define your worth. No one has the right to physically intimidate or bring violence upon another person. There are resources available for you.

If you have survived IPV, we are here to tell you that you’re not alone. You are brave and strong, and you deserve to heal. We see you. Even after you’ve escaped your terrible situation, the emotional toll of having been mistreated can last long after the abuse has ended and the visible wounds have healed. Counseling can help you identify and address scars of the past, build on your strengths, and foster a sense of resiliency in you as you take these next steps forward.

Signs and Symptoms

  • bruises/cuts
  • anxiety/depression
  • insomnia
  • PTSD
  • social withdrawal
  • "walking on eggshells"
  • dissociative moments
  • suicidal ideation

How does Lifeologie help?

Discuss your concerns with our intake specialists.

When you reach out to a Lifeologie, you’ll be connected with one of our Intake Specialists. In a “call center?” No way. Our specialists are each located in their local Lifeologie office and know the counselors well. Their entire job is to learn about you and what you’re looking for and to match you with the counselor who will be the very best fit for your needs and preferences.

Find a counselor that is passionate about helping you reach your mental health goals.

Our counselors are literally the cream of the crop. We get hundreds of applications every year to intern and work at our offices. Lifeologists are counselors, life coaches and overall wellness advocates who are experts and specialists in their craft. At the intern level, they have set themselves apart as incredible learners and collaborators, chasing after the highest-level trainings in the field. From EMDR to nutrition coaching to brain spotting and addiction specialists, we have you covered. Once you enter a Lifeologie office, you’ll find that we’ve carefully curated the environment to feel modern, comfortable and inviting. Counseling at Lifeologie is not your typical counseling experience – in any way.

Receive continuous support and guidance as you go on your mental health journey.

Your counselor at Lifeologie will meet you wherever you are, whether you’re just starting in counseling for the first time ever… or returning to a life-long counseling journey after a brief break. Your Lifeologist will partner with you to meet your goals. As you learn and grow, we can help you focus on overall wellness through mindfulness practices such as Psychotherapeutic Yoga or mindful eating. Wherever you are, we can come alongside and help you move forward!
