Confessions of a Trauma Therapist: A Memoir of Healing and Transformation is my story of uncovering my own history of child sexual abuse in my 40s. By this time in my life I was a social work psychotherapist in private practice helping others who suffered the invisible wounds of childhood trauma.
In my 70s I decided to tell my story so that others who have suffered childhood trauma could see their pain reflected in my story of struggle and success.
Child abuse happens in secret. It is my hope that Confessions of a Trauma Therapist will help us all be more aware of this hidden crime against our world’s children.
“Trauma therapist Mary K. Armstrong embarks on an illuminating journey into her own secret past and emerges with a renewed sense of personal authenticity and joy in helping others. A compelling synthesis of Eastern and Western healing wisdom.”
– Sylvia Fraser, author of My Father’s House: A Memoir of Incest and Healing
