Childhood Trauma

Childhood trauma can take many different forms. Physical and sexual abuse are commonly identified forms, however, there are a multitude of childhood experiences which interfere with an adults ability to live life to the fullest.  Neglect, living with a narcissistic parent, emotional alienation, conflict within the home and involvement in fringe religious cultures are just a few of the experiences which, later in life, affect one’s ability to form healthy adult relationships or to parent one’s own children.  My philosophy of the counseling process, related to overcoming damaging childhood experiences, is not one of applying blame and guilt, rather identifying how the experiences affected thought processes and helping clients develop new thought patterns about themselves and the relationships in their lives.
