Imagine being a child forced into the role of caretaker for your struggling mother. Our guest for today, Saylor, knows that reality all too well, and she’s here to share her journey. From witnessing her mother’s emotional abuse at the hands of her father, to grappling with her own feelings about their complex family dynamics, Saylor offers a raw and insightful look into a world many don’t understand. In sharing her story, she illuminates the impact of unseen family wounds on the developmental years of children and their future relationships.

It’s a story of enmeshment, resilience, caretaking, getting your needs met, PTSD, panic disorders, self-awareness, and much more.
