I have a past that includes a lot of verbal, physical, emotional and sexual abuse. I have spent all of my life thinking that there was something wrong with me and going through many relationships wondering what I was doing wrong that they always ended up the same. I have been in counseling for about a year now with family services and Melanie Thompson. They have taught me what to look for in a relationship and have showed me that there is nothing wrong with me. They are teaching me how to break my own patterns and to watch for abusers patterns. I am so much happier now and I can like myself the way I am and not blame myself for others behaviors! I have so much more to learn and am thankful for the services Melanie and Family Services provide to me!!!
