Welcome to our first installment of what I’m calling “The End of An Era…Stories from The Think Good Community.” Today, I welcome Vicki Grossman Capps. Vicki is trained as a therapist and is a licensed professional counselor, a licensed addiction counselor, a nationally certified therapist, an approved clinical supervisor and an EMDRIA certified trauma therapist.  She has worked for nearly 19 years at a program within the District Attorney’s office that offers first time juvenile and adult offenders an alternative to formal court filing by going through a therapeutic counseling program and restorative justice process. At the heart of this episode is the story of one woman’s journey of survivorship. Vicki shares how being swept off her feet as a young professional in New York City set the stage for a marriage that looked promising to her (in all of the bright shiny ways that we can all relate to) and almost more importantly, to others. She talks about the emotional blackmailing that happens in abusive relationships and the final words that put her in a place of action. Vicki’s storytelling is powerful and courageous. She talks about trusting her gut. She also shares a very real internal questioning that happens with the brain of  survivors…does my experience qualify as abuse? Was it “real”? And how this mindset contributes to not sharing our stories for fear of not being believed. By sharing her story, Vicki hopes to shine a light on issues of domestic violence with others. She also hopes that she can model the way for her teenage daughters as she owns and steps into her own think courageously moment.
