What was damaged in relationship has to be healed in relationship.
Legacies of childhood abuse can be devastating. Many who have lived through these experiences doubt if they can ever fully trust another person, or feel safe within a relationship.
Entering therapy may feel like a paradox. You want to heal from the painful experiences of the past. At the same time you may not want to remember it, you fear re-living things, you wish you could just put it all behind you. Yet somehow it doesn’t seem to rest for long.
This is a terrible dilemma, and one that takes patience, kindness, and support to move through. I understand that opening up means taking a huge risk. You need someone who can see what’s happening inside you, and who knows how to help without making you feel ashamed.
I am committed to listening, staying connected with you, and mending the broken places together. It does take time, but healing is possible.
