Support, education, and awareness of IPV (intimate partner violence) with an empathetic spiritual twist
As a domestic abuser survivor, advocate, and author, and founder of Create Soul Space, I know what a huge emotional, spiritual, physical, and psychological impact intimate partner violence (IPV) has on a person. Domestic abuse seems to take away your very self—your creativity, goals, thoughts, aspirations, friendships, finances, sense of self, independence ... the list varies from situation to situation, and goes on …
Yet the beauty of your true self hasn’t been destroyed. It’s merely lying dormant beneath the toxins of abuse which shroud nearly every aspect of your life, but YOU are still there. My goal is to help you erase the toxins created by domestic violence so you can reclaim your true self. Through education, awareness, and the support you’ll find at Create Soul Space, you’ll learn how to recover your deep inner and outer strength, your confidence and creativity, and how to build a healthy support system. As a Catholic I often write from my own spiritual tradition, yet my posts are open and adaptable to all people along their healing journey.
Breaking free of toxic abuse. Creating the space to become YOU again.
A Note on Pronouns: In my articles, I most often refer to the abuser as “he” and the victim/survivor as “she.” This isn’t because I’m unaware of the fact that women can be abusers and men can be victims — even though statistically women are more often the victims, I do understand that men can be the targets of abuse, too. However, because I happen to be a woman, I naturally tend to write from a woman’s perspective. I can’t pretend to know what it’s like to be a man, nor do I particularly want to. So. There you have it. That’s why in my articles, I refer to abusers as “he” and survivors as “she.” If you happen to be a male survivor of abuse and are reading this newsletter, please feel free to change the pronouns around in your head to make a more enjoyable reading experience. Really, I won’t be offended.
