“We’re lucky, Mom. Because of you, we get to be interesting.”

From birth, each of us sets out to discover who we really are.
But when trauma occurs, we create ways to survive. Often, we split into pieces and abandoned the most vulnerable parts of ourselves,
boxing them up in tidy packages and tossing them away. Later, we spend our lives looking for these parcels, hoping to find someone who can help us find these lost splintered pieces of ourselves.
