Financial Abuse Star Point Counseling Center Tampa, Fl & Brandon, Fl 

With very few exceptions, people need money to survive. We need it to buy food, obtain shelter, access health care, and purchase everyday necessities. Economic abuse prevents an individual from accessing wealth or earning money on their own. The individual may then become dependent on their abuser for resources, making it much more difficult to leave. Like other forms of abuse, financial abuse can cause people to feel isolated and hopeless. Even after an individual has escaped an abusive relationship, the emotional effects of mistreatment can last years. A therapist at Star Point Counseling Center in Tampa, Fl & Brandon, Fl can help individuals recognize abuse, access community resources, or recover from trauma.
