Welcome to PossibilitiesBlog

I’m a mental health counselor who has specialized in childhood sexual abuse and other childhood traumas for 17 years. I’ve come across many helpful resources over the years.  I developed this blog so I can share healing tools for those struggling with these profoundly difficult life situations.  I have not yet read every single source, but I have always obtained them from a good source, such as other colleagues or authors I know to be wonderful healers.  There are many fellow humans who can inspire us to grow.  I know that my clients inspire me all the time through their insights and courage.

After working on this blog I realized that as a grandmother I wanted to leave this for my granddaughters too. I want them to know what I thought was important, what I felt passionate about, and how I hope that they have a better future due to the efforts of feminists like me. The beauty of living long is that you get to witness progress as it comes. I see an enormous amount of progress in how males are much freer to express themselves as human beings and let go of the macho jail they were socially supposed to inhabit. Sadly, we do still have a way to go.
