I work best with people who have experienced some kind of Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN). Childhood Emotional Neglect happens when your parents fail to adequately respond to your emotional needs as they arise in you. If you grew up in this way, you are inevitably suppressing or walling off your emotions as an adult because you were taught that your emotions aren’t important. CEN is largely invisible, and therein lies its power. It is a type of trauma but, unlike abuse, it is characterized not by an event or a presence but by a non-event or an absence.
Symptoms of Childhood Emotional Neglect include inner emptiness, guilt and shame, anger and blame, fear of depending on and trusting others, lack of self-compassion, difficulty identifying and expressing emotions, and a feeling of being defective or broken.
What we can do: Healing happens by accessing and valuing your emotions. When you know and value yourself on the inside, you can start to change your life on the outside. Call or email me to get started on this process.

Professional Connections

Vera is a talented Gestalt therapist and I highly recommend her. I admire her for her integrity and her courage to stand up for what she believes. As a clinician, she is animated by a very strong desire to explore with her clients what is most alive for them even when it brings very difficult emotions such as shame.
