Domestic Violence/Expert Profile

Ask A Question

Kriss Mitchell, M.Ed, CRC, CNHP


I am able to answer questions with regard to problems that result from emotional abuse or physical abuse in both dating and marriage relationships. Having been in an abusive relationship for many years, I know first hand the feelings, the questions and the doubts we go through as we try to make decisions about our lives. Often victims of abuse have deep faith based concerns regarding staying in these kinds of relationships which I am able to address as well.

Experience in the area

My background started as a victim of an emotionally abusive relationship as well as having family members who were victims of violence and physical abuse. I have gone on to become a professional counselor and I work with abused women.

What do you like about this subject?

Having come from a background of domestic violence and working with individuals who become involved in these kinds of relationships, I believe I have a good perspective of what the abuse cycle looks like and what it takes to move out of it.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Abusers have a profile that is predictable and clear. Most individuals who are in the midst of abuse have a hard time seeing the progression of the abuse cycle and where it is going, but through the help of outside professionals, they can learn to see it and heal from it.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Depending on what a person's spiritual background is, ending a relationship can be a source of pain as well as spiritual concern.
