Why does childhood trauma has such a profound impact on us?

A bigger question to pose: can it be fixed?

Mental health therapist Crystal Currie recently joined Hey, Black Mom! to discuss its impact and how to navigate through it. The North Carolina-based counselor specializes in healing trauma in adults.

Her passion for it comes from overcoming childhood trauma in her own life.

“When you’ve been in the trenches and do the work, you have a new respect for what it takes to do the work,” she said in a live video. “And so you develop a compassion for people that are doing the real work, the real self-healing work.”

She shares some of her personal journey and more in an inspiring conversation designed to prompt healing — and even forgiveness.
