*Trigger warning: This episode mentions acts of domestic violence. Listener discretion is advised.*
In this week’s episode, I sat down with Tori Benitez, a survivor of domestic violence and founder of Onyx Arrow Consulting. Tori helps those escape abusive relationships who are forced to not only co-parent with their abusers, but navigate the family court system. She specializes in strategies to help protective parents and their children.
Tori shares her personal experiences with multiple abusive relationships and the different forms of abuse she's dealt with. We highlight the concept of coercive control & signs of abuse to look out for. We also discuss the challenges of leaving an abusive relationship & navigating the legal system. We talk about how important it is to document the abuse you're dealing with and ways to seek help after leaving.
Leaving an abusive relationship is one of the hardest things a victim of DV can encounter. I want people to know that just because you left the relationship doesn't mean that the abuse stops. There's so much more that goes into leaving, and this week we're talking about it.
I hope by listening to our conversation, you can learn how to protect yourself from post-separation abuse and take back power once you leave that toxic relationship. It can be a challenge, but if we both have done it, you ABSOLUTELY can too!
*If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, please know that help is available. Call the 24/7 National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) for confidential support.
