"Strange as it may sound, I'm actually thankful for everything that happened to me back then, appreciative of living in the dark and frightening world that I was forced to face and somehow endure. Why? Because all along the way, I was training to become a therapist, a professional uniquely equipped with the experience, understanding, and awareness of what it means to pay the price of childhood trauma."
