I never tell people what they should or shouldn’t do. That’s not my job. (Nor is it the job of anyone else in your life.) Instead, I empower Christian women to be the amazing adults God made them to be and make their own decisions for their own lives.
I hold space for Christian women to learn, grow, and discover their wings in their own time. There is never any pressure to be anywhere other than where you are today.
Let’s set aside fear and shame and manipulation and drop into love and acceptance and freedom. This is a safe space where you can explore your options and possibilities.
There are risks, responsibilities, and rewards whether you stay or leave. I will show you what all of that looks like, and then I will help you get clear and strong in your identity so you can make the right decision (at the right time) for you.

Here are seven steps to getting out of your emotionally abusive marriage so you can find hope and healing.
I have personal experience walking through this process of healing, and looking back, I think it’s much like going from a caterpillar to a butterfly. So let’s take that analogy and look at each part of this process briefly, and you decide which phase you think you might be in. Please keep in mind that these phases may overlap a little or a lot depending on different factors.
