Welcome to A Date With Darkness Podcast. This podcast is dedicated to those who have been hurt by love and abuse, through their relationships with narcissistic people. The purpose of the podcast is to deepen the understanding of hurtful and traumatic relationships which have been a source of unspoken pain and trauma. In the episodes I will be chatting with various experts in various fields to provide education, tips, resources, and information for those who are survivors of abusive relationships. I will combine my expertise of forensics, domestic violence, and work in various mental health fields to have an intimate discussion with you about abusive relationships, characteristics of dangerous and manipulative people, how to move beyond the victim role, learn to love and heal from the wounds of toxic relationships. If you have a question about the podcast or you want to get in touch with me directly, please feel free to email me at adatewithdarkness@gmail.com. Thank you so much for listening!

Confession #3. Kareem Puranda, LPC and owner of Self Talk Counseling and Consulting in Charlotte, NC discusses growing up in a violent environment in NY, and how that experience influenced his experience as a law enforcement officer in the Salisbury PD. Kareem also discusses the pivotal moment in his law enforcement career in which violence escalated, was caught on film, and made him re-evaluate his behavior. His experience was the motivation behind his book.
