Chilhood Trauma

Trauma experienced during childhood often follows people into adulthood. Folks often tell me they don’t understand why they can’t stop thinking about it, or why they have such a hard time setting boundaries with others, or feel like old memories are following them around. It’s not about what’s “wrong” with you, it’s about what happened to you.

Neglect

Physical, emotional, and sexual abuse

Psychological abuse (this also includes people with narcissistic parents)

Witnessing domestic violence

Incarcerated parents or other family members

Addiction in the household

Hoarding household

Spiritual trauma and abuse (my practice is secular)

Abuse of your identity

Bullying

Mental illness in family members
