It is our belief that no one ever deserves abuse, and that God desires safety and love to be present in all relationships. Through our support groups, we hope to facilitate the work of survivors becoming empowered to choose the best course for their physical, emotional, and spiritual safety.

Domestic Violence 101 If you are new to our support groups, we recommend you start with this group. Join licensed therapist and trauma specialist, Carol Lindlow, for an introduction to domestic violence and to Northwest Family Life. This group will offer insight and support for women who have experienced abusive relationships.
Nicole’s group is a safe space where survivors can normalize their feelings, rebuild their self-esteem, safety plan, create a support network, and build pathways to healthy futures. There will be opportunities to practice calming and grounding techniques as well as to explore the dynamics of power and control. Together we will learn, heal, and grow in a supportive community.
You are not alone, you are invited to journey with other women who have experienced similar things in their relationships. Together we will learn, grow, and support one another. Tabitha Terlunen is a graduate student in St. Stephen’s Master’s in Ministry program and a community based advocate through Northwest Family Life.
