American Psychological Association (APA) Locator
The American Psychological Association (APA) has a feature to locate a counselor or therapist in your area who can help you if you are experiencing emotional abuse. You can select “domestic violence” from the drop-down list on their webpage. Therapists are trained to help people in crisis and could be a big support for someone suffering. To find out if the therapist accepts your health insurance or what his/her fee is, contact the therapist directly.
