Review for Crisis Center For South Suburbia, Tinley Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was married for ten years to a man who treated me horribly. I blamed myself for the condition of our marriage and for his abusive behavior. I thought I was doing something to make him angry. When I tried to talk to him about his behavior, he would tell me I needed to learn to react to him differently - that there was nothing wrong with him, it was all my fault. I was very confused, hurt, frustrated and angry when I first came to the Crisis Center for counseling. That was three years ago. The Crisis Center taught me about the dynamics of domestic violence. They provided emotional support and helped me develop a safety plan of action. They helped me uncover the truth about what was really going on in my marriage. They helped me find me. I am free of the abusive situation that I lived in and I am learning how not to get into the same situation again. I am sure that God led me to the Crisis Center, because I prayed for help for many years.

Role:  Client Served & I received counseling and court advocacy services.
