Welcome to our new podcast. I’m happy you’re joining us, as we explore the hope in what can seem like a hopeless situation. The numbers can feel overwhelming with 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experiencing severe intimate partner violence.
However, our goal with “I’m Not in an Abusive Relationship” is to bring you stories of hope to inspire, and conversations with experts to offer insight and advice.
This is a weekly show, so be sure to subscribe wherever you’re listening.
The inspiration for the show and the name of the podcast came from a survivor. In her story, she referenced the fact that she didn’t see herself in an abusive relationship. She didn’t think it was “that bad.” Our hope is that anyone in that situation can hear their story in these episodes, find hope and find help.
On behalf of the staff, volunteers and board of directors at Domestic and Sexual Assault Services, and the producers of this podcast, we are all humbled to be able to bring you this podcast.

Welcome to “I’m Not in an Abusive Relationship.” I’m Claudia Pahls. Until next time, here’s to hope.
