Abuse isn't just physical. It is well known that emotional and mental abuse is prevalent everywhere, from the workplace to our own homes. Yet, it can be so much more difficult to find healing and a path towards moving forward when those hurting us are our own family members. What do you say when your mother gaslights you? How do you heal after having an emotionally distant and uncaring father?
On today's episode of Becoming Well, Deb and Mary will dive into that topic with a VERY special guest! The OG Dr. Gorton!!!
