I first sought out help from Gianna because I thought it was possible to “fix” my husband. After several years of marriage, I found myself in a domestic violence situation that seemed hopeless. I still wanted to believe that if I stayed it would make him change and that he actually wanted to stop abusing me, alcohol, and drugs. Gianna helped me to understand that healthy boundaries were not in conflict with my faith. I learned that I could still love my husband and teach my children to love him, without continuing to enable him or put myself and my children in danger. Gianna helped me secure a safety plan for myself and my children. She also taught me how to implement effective ways to help my family cope with the effects of substance abuse. Every day, I am reminded that forgiveness, prayer, and love strengthen me.
